So, no idea why font so big.  Will keep short.  Does the dnr stock these lakes again in fall or are we just cleaning up the ones stocked in spring?

Trout are fun to catch, but They are not my favorite eating fish.

Whitetail, trout are excellent table fare. If you get some go to YouTube and search for clips on how to clean trout. It is simple and does not make much mess. Make sure to leave the skin on, when cooked correctly it becomes a tasty treat. Text me and I will send you a link for a wonderful recipe. To those eating it, it will seem Gourmet, but is actually very simple. I’ll pm you my cell.  I would not fillet trout but rather eat them whole like you would catfish.  I know you can fillet cats, and I do sometimes, but imo trout are best when left whole.

They restock the ponds before each season.  Most trout die out in S. IL over the summer.  I believe they cant take water temp above 70-75F due too low of dissolved oxygen.
