Normally I can be found somewhere on Lake Oconee in Georgia almost every Friday night or Satuday, but this past weekend my wife and I decided to spend a few days at her parents place in the mountains near Cleveland Ga. Their place is situated right on a stocked Trout stream, so of course I threw a rod and reel in the van along with the rest of our baggage. Even though my wife and I spend about 9 days in the North Carolina Mountains every fall (and I do fish while we're there) I've never done any real Trout fishing, so when we got to her parents place I found one of the local boys and asked him to show me the ropes. I fished up and down the stream using a small panfish hook, with a small sinker about 6" above it. The local boy had said that corn good so I had some of that with me, but I also took a couple slices of loaf bread as well. I soon found out that the same method of using doughballs I had so frequently used as a boy still worked. I didn't catch any trout, but I caught quite a few horny heads.
I may never become a great Trout fisherman, but I had plenty of fun walking up and down the stream by myself catching horny heads on doughballs. I might try some this coming weekend when I'm back in my usual place on Lake Oconee
