Brown Trout In Hickory?


Recommended Posts

No. Brown trout aren't stocked at Hickory, only rainbows. You'll have to go to Capps for Brown trout. Rainbows are stocked pretty frequently from about Nov. through March and occasionally another in April or May.

If fishing was easy it would be called catching.

There goes that crazy Buzz telling stories again. Buzz, you know there aren't any Browns in Capps! :secret-laugh:

trust me they do stock browns in Hickory. Not often and only on "big" days like kids fishing, but if you are interested you can usually snag a couple of the left overs. This year I saw at least five or six the day after the kids fishing but those fish were so gun shy they wouldn't even eat bait. Last year I stalked a good sized one for over a month but someone else got him first. Like Buzz said, Capps has more, but let's be honest, If you want browns just go to Taney.

Let the summer of Carp, begin.

If they stock browns in Hickory then it's by mistake. Hickory gets it's regular stocking out of RR and during events like the free fishing or the derby afterwards those are stocked by Neosho, but Neosho doesn't carry browns so I'm not sure where you would have seen those. I'm just saying I think those would be stocked by accident and from RR if that is the case.

well, I have caught them so I don't know what you tell you. Also this is the second year in a row that I have spotted them there. Could be they came from RR, I can't say.

Now I'm not saying they are common or consistent, but it has happened. Like catching a bluegill at RR, sometimes it happens.

Well that's news to me. I've fished Hickory for nearly 30 years and have never seen a brown in there. I guess I'll have to keep an eye out.

How long would you guess that brown in the picture to be BBT?

she was dead on 15 inches.( looks smaller in the photo the tail bends back toward me) would have liked her to be bigger but sadly she wasn't, however she did go great with lemon and butter. :yaeh-am-not-durnk: My Grandma told me when she was kid she always used to catch brown trout in hickory creek, she's in her 70's though. (I read originally the Neosho hatchery raised browns.)
