Fished Lake Atwood today 5/6 ,from 330 pm-6pm. Found out lake was opened for Inland trout season on Friday May 1. Supposedly 1500 lbs of trout were stocked this spring per MCHENRY conservation officer . Could not get a bite ! Tried Power Bait, small 1/8 ounce spoons, crawlers, and wax worms. Never did see a fish even rise ! Saw a young man lift a decent size bass on a stringer from shore, but no trout taken while i was there . There is a boat ramp there , to launch kayaks, row boats, and canoes. No motors or minnows allowed ! Guess all the stupid fish were caught first few days, and now just the smart ones are left ! LOL <(((((<
