Sunday I went up to Reno to give my cash away. >:( On the way back I stopped at the Truckee rest stop for a $#@*^ and a smoke. Found that there is a 1 acre pond that is loaded with cats. Saw hundreds in big schools crusing around near the surface. Most were pan sized 10-12in. but I saw a few that went at least 15in. plus. Didnt have my rod...bummer! May take the boy up there. He should be able to catch one after another. While he's doing that I'll go after mom or daddy cat. Didnt see any signs that said you couldnt fish. Has anybody seen this or tried there? Plug-n-Jug

Yes, I've seen it and I believe you can't fish it.

I believe Dan Bacher did an article on it and you can fish it.

I'll have my gear ready next time I'm up there. Gotta go before the snow comes and it freezes.
