Big Trout being caught at Lower Lake Mary
Lower Lake Mary has had about 9,000 larger (10 + inch) Rainbow Trout stocked in the last week along with about 8600 smaller (6-8 inch) Rainbow Trout. The recent stocking of Rainbow Trout contained some really nice fish with several being caught that measured about 18 inches. Folks yesterday were catching trout on flies (gold ribbed hairs ears) and small lures. Some were also being caught on Powerbait. More stockings are on the way for Lower Lake Mary.

Some have also been caught using corn and worms. The last load of Trout stocked contained some larger fish with some being over 14 inches.
