got there about 7. couldnt find anywhere to fish. walked around the lake until i found a little spot that these people let me fish. right off the bat i caught ane about 12 inches. then lost one right next to shore. then hooked about 5 more in the next hour but couldnt finish. oh well they were fun. its my first time fishing for trout. does anyone think that it will be as crowded tomarrow and will there be any fish left?

Probably not as crowded - and there are plenty of fish - do not think many were caught today - proangler33, what were you using for bait?

i was using wax worms and berkley trout bait. they were hammering the trout bait but i also caught one on a wax worm and had a few other hits on it. they guys next to me was using minnows and got nothing. i think the key is to keep it simple. a small slip bobber down about 3-4 feet with a small aberdeen hook and a split shot. it seemed to work really well for me. just let them take it. i missed the ones because i was too anxious. oh well. fish on wayne! let me know how you do.

Try using a small white tube jig with a couple of waxes under a float.

My son and I got to Deep Quarry around 9:00. I actually got a parking space in the lot so many people had left. No bites at all on powerbait. I only saw 4 fish caught in 3 hours, all on minnows. I'll be sure to get back out sometime this week.

Fished 4:30-7:00 saw about 30 caught - bait of choice was spikes or wax worms and orange power baits - fish were schooling up and near the surface - the time is now
