Toms Run Children’s Pond

Anglers are reporting that recently stocked trout are still very receptive to anything that is tan or chartreuse, and worm-style flies. Overall, anglers are having luck with nymphs, pheasant tail flies, and olive wooly buggers.
REMINDER – Anglers are reminded that fall is the time of year when Brook, and Brown Trout spawn. When fishing, make sure you are mindful of where you step to avoid stepping on trout egg nests, also known as trout redds. The gravel in a trout redd will appear light in color/clean gravel. Most look like oval or round areas of clean gravel. Some are not much bigger than a frying pan size, others may be larger.
