Interested in catching some trout in Birch Grove this weekend, but I've never tried it. Is it worth getting a trout stamp and giving it a shot or will they all be gone after a week???? Thanks....any tips would be appreciated also! Tight Lines!
:thumbsup:Those stock trout will be there for a while. There will be some nice ones stocked this year 15-18" also. Power bait works great, also meal worms and worms. You can always throw a spinner also. They winter stocked also last year and some of them will still be hungry too. Good Luck !!!!!
I hate to say it but every year opening day is a bust for most. First they don't stop people from fishing and people fishing for the trout before opening day. I've been going here 25 years and its always the same thing. Last year a group of teenagers told me they were fishing here at night and caught so many trout the days before. You also have to share the trout with birds of prey. Trout are there and some are caught opening day I seen 7 or 8 last year and the year before about 16.
A great tip I learned from a man in his 70's two years ago use grass shrimp. He caught 2 on them while i was there and I had to ask the big question we never like to ask. What are you using?
I also found this info out and has changed from all the other years.

packed with kids opening day, Last year I called the local cops to chase out some teens fishing and keeping Trout pre season, There are some nice fish in the ponds there but its to much like a play ground for me...If you have kids it is a great place to take them, they can take a break and play when they get bored ,then go back to fishing.. that's what I think of Birch Grove
