I'm going to guess it'll be cats as well. Trout as mentioned, usually ends in February.
I fished at Elk Grove pond this late winter a few days after the initial plant and had luck hooking into multiple stockers. Not the best fight, but they made for some nice almond crusted trout fillets.
If I had kids, I'd take them out for a day along the sac or to like Jenkinson lake just drifting crawlers on the bottom as opposed to this. Not to say the fishing in the city program isn't fun every so often, but it's going to be filled with people and really hot probably. Added, the kids would be exposed to so many people who more or less follow bad fishing etiquette. At Elk Grove, I saw people keeping double limits, fishing without licenses and using little little kids for their overall possession limits. And some dudes were using big river striper/sturgeon rods.
catfish not trout i think
i caught 13 pound cat out there on halloween.Last summer they had lotta black crappie and this one asian man caught 10 pound largemouth and almost broke his neck doing a backflip off a picnic table lol. But yeah i guess they were having a derby last year and me and my buddy tried to go the night before and a security guard asked us to leave.stayed home day of derby went that night got skunked but found soooo much new tackle!!!
Think like a fish!
I can't believe there stocking that hole in this heat?? Can't see how trout would survive
Always wishin I was fishin!
If you have rugrats that like to fish this might be a good event to take them to. Or if you can't make it Saturday morning you know there is going to be trout in this pond for a good day of fishing with the kids on Sunday. Short notice I know but I just found out about it myself and wanted to put the info out for you guy and gals.
