I had plans to hit the river today but they are blown out so I went to Busch for urban trout to soak my sorrows.  Place was packed!!  I counted 43 at one point with people still walking in because the parking was full and they were parking down the road.  Didn't matter, everyone was catching.  Decent fish too.  A couple at 15 inches easily and some hot blonde caught on that was close to 20"s.  Fish came from Montauk.  Even though it's flies only power bait and power worms were were everywhere.  I drug a bugger and caught my 10th at the 38 minute mark.  Quit counting after that and left after an hour or so.  Rip rap is real tough on fly lines  

Great weather and it was better than watching TV.

And yes, I did use power worms in December.  Thanks for pointing out that for catch and release you can't use them.  I was unaware of this regulation.  

I don't know anything about warm water hatcheries but the idea of converting or establishing one at Bushes sounds like a great idea.  They could also supply some of the urban area ponds.   B

Congrats. I have always liked the urban trout program. Gives a great sunday afternoon diversion for those that just can't easily get to a trout stream or tailwater.

Tried 21 Monday the 24 and didn't get a strike.  Think those 'catch and release' lakes with flies only is an option to some from what I saw.  One guy was standing there with a bait bucket, rod in hand, line out and no reeling.  The other was using an orange plastic worm....There was a nice big dead one on the shore along the dam, looked to be 4 or 5 lbs.

That was my experience also.  I saw a guy sneaking trout into his “gear”bag.  

I just get tired of calling it out so I leave.  I don’t think some know the regs because they don’t try to hide it but the guy clearly poaching them definitely knew the rules.
