Is Pardee Lake stocking Rainbow Trout in 74 plus degree water? I was putting my boat on the trailer and at the dock I seen several of them swimming around. I thought they didn't stock Trout in this high of water temperture. Anyway caught 1 Rainbow and 2 kokes on pink hoochie mama's and the trout on a Apex watermelon before the thunder and lighting scared me away. Actually mach speed back to the dock!! :) Don't like being in the middle of the lake when there's lighting!

The stocking info is right at the "toll booth" where you pay. I think they stock weekly from opening to closure.
What shape were the Kokes in? Have they turned yet?

yeah if they hang around the marina they dont last long so they take off pretty quick to the deeper cold water. I think the floaters are from the actual stocking... I think some are dieing due to shock because they water is atleast 15 degrees cooler in the truck, so when they hit the lake they tend to go belly up.. :(
