    Exclamation 2010 Stockings to Start on Trammel Creek

    My favorite trout waters are fixing to start receiving there 2010 trout stockings starting the first week of April. If you've never FF trammel creek, it is a great little water. Spring fed, cold all year long, clean clear water with classic riffles and pools. They plant bows and browns there. And there are some monsters! I caught a 27" brown trout there three years ago in late Oct. She was full of eggs! She shot them everywhere while I was handling her. She still lurks there somewhere. I have seen other large browns in deep pools, but have not hooked up with any more. You can catch trout from the head spring waters, down to the hwy31 bridge. My daughter and I have been going there for nearly 7 years (her whole life). A great place to take the kids or to do some solo FFin. Check it out sometime!

    Sure thing Tim. I usually check the website for the stocking dates, then try to hit it a couple days after. Made the mistake of going on stocking day once.....to crowded! The creek isn't very large, so you can only imagine what its like when twenty people show up to the stocking sites! After a few days the crowds disappear. They stock at two different bridges on the water, and usually by late summer the fish have dispersed nicely throughout the whole section. There are hold over fish that are always there. Mostly the browns, but some of the bows as well. They did an entire "stream restoration" project on the upper section last year. I'm excited to fish it this year. We'll be in touch.

    Sounds like a plan Rich. I know what you mean on stocking day, I made that mistake once on Lynn Camp Creek. Never again.

    Re: 2010 Stockings to Start on Trammel Creek

    State says 400 Browns went in on March 11th. Rainbows going in in April? Allen county is down near the Tennessee border on towards the eastern end of the state right? I've been curious about fishing that stretch for a good bit now, due mainly to the tell I have heard of the hold over browns and the fantastic setting. Extremely interested now...

    Colonel-
    You are correct, they put in the browns in March (little 5-6inchers, and occasional breeding stock), then they start the monthly bow stocking in April. You need to come check it out. It's a great little creek, the only problem with it is with any rain, it raises up and gets murky. Not worth going to in that situation. Normally though, it has cold clear water. And yes, it's in Allen county, just outside of Scottsville. Take care.

    It would be a PERFECT creek for your Bamboo lady!

    later in summer, like July-Sept., I like to park at the lower bridge and wade up stream to just above the second bridge (were the spring is), then wade back down to the car. Catch fish all the way up and back down. Really pretty wade with plenty of fish along the way!

    How old is Flyboy, and does he live in KY? Take care.
