    Re: Collins Lake 3/19

    They are scheduled to stock trout this week. In my experience it is usually the last few days in the week like Thursday but the truck gets there when it gets there. As far as the water clarity goes it is tough right now if you are trolling. Yesterday there was a little surface debris like pollen and a few leaves. We got over an inch of rain last night and some wind. Sometimes that helps clear the surface debris away but might add to the cloudy water issue. Just depends on how muddy the run off is. I have been getting a decent trout or 2 per week while bass fishing.

    They might be a little behind on trout plants this year as compared to other years but if the website says they planted trout, they planted. They still intend to plant the same number of fish this spring it is just with the muddy water I think they are starting out a little slower.

    Going to be awhile before that happens, and the lake hasn't been stocking like they were claiming they were either. This week was going to be their first stocking in awhile
