i am not sure how long those stocked trout last, they seem to get eaten up by bass and cormorants before i get there. and of course, you will share a small sliver of water with 20 bait fisherman if you go on the weekend.

the bass fishing is decent, though, and i've seen huge schools of suckers and big carp. it's worth a trip, but be prepared to encounter a ton of trash, loads of horse manure, and lots of people.
