    Approximately 2000 rainbow trout were stocked into Moorland Pond on November 9th. They can be caught using small tube and twister jigs, in-line spinners, casting spoons, and live minnows under a bobber. Most are having the best luck with small spinners and anything that will grab the trout's attention.
