    Not sure where these surplus trout come from given that I thought the NCWRC was maxed out on trout production but the list includes sites east of Charlotte

    Whoa. All the way out here in Wake County. Those trout aren't going to live long. Most likely going to be bass food.

    They did this last year, and I agree, it totally became bass food. Shortly after they stocked trout at Bass Lake I caught my PB there, 6.74 pounds.

    Lots of them are human food too. I was amazed at the number of folks that this got out fishing during a time of year you don't see many people at some of these parks.

    Yes, this is a catch & eat... people are pigs, taking more than legal limit regularly in these parks.
    After all is said and done.... A heck of a lot more will be said than done

    yea these are purely for food, not for a sustained population

    best way to catch em is a piece of canned corn on a small circle hook and a tiny split shot -- they're all farm raised on corn based food, i wouldn't be surprised if they tasted like corn too
