Member Adam Stevens caught this grass carp on April 13th on a 5 wt fly rod after an hour+ fight. The fish was 27 inches long and weighed 9lb 13oz, a very healthy grass carp. Good thing he caught the fish since it had a spinning lure embedded in its tail from someone trying to snag the fish previously. He released the fish in good condition with hopes the tail wound will heal.
The Trout Run
The Trout Run is where fingerling sized Rainbow Trout are raised until they weigh between 1 and 4 pounds. They are then released into the Upper Pond in accordance with a schedule determined by the Fish Committee.
