Trout fishing time is here!

As a former resident of Calhoun County, I was always fascinated by trout. Maybe it’s because Calhoun is not capable of sustaining trout. Our waterways have too much siltation and temperatures get too high during the summer.

In order for Calhoun fishermen to pursue trout, one must cross county lines. The nearest locations to trout fish are all lakes. Miletree in Roane, Mountwood in Wood, Cedar Creek in Gilmer, and Pennsboro and Tracey in Ritchie all get stocked with trout.

The nearest rivers or streams that contain trout are tailwater fisheries at Sutton, Burnsville, and Stonewall Jackson, which also get stocked with trout. These streams are stocked on schedule. Most lakes are stocked bi-annually, or twice a year. Most tailwaters are stocked bi-weekly or once every two weeks.

In order to fish for trout, you must have a trout stamp. In lakes stocked with trout, you can only use two poles.

Enjoy fishing for trout in 2010. Maybe you will luck into a brooder trout, or one of the four-pounders we all dream about.
