ended up at trout farms hidden lakes park in Bolingbrook and crew was out stocking nice sized channel cats for those who fish for those. Not my cup of tea but they were good looking fish. People taking pics but i was trying to be stealthy cause the crews were not letting people fish the ponds they were stocking. Didn't last long before yelled at from across the lake from one of the guys even though I was bass fishing.

Easy to clean and good eating. I will be at Lake Geneva in October helping stock musky yearlings.
Nature and shit.

I use to work down there is HS. Was a great gig, and loved weekly stocking when I was on shift.....throw a few large ones in the back ponds no one would fish.... If they were roping off one pond, they are probably preparing for the night/evening fishing derby. For that they stick and then rope off and open it up when the derby starts......can become a crowded mess. Trout in Spring and Fall was the old schedule, think they still do they same. And yes the river would flood and sometimes land lock some of the largest carp I have ever seen.

I loved that place growing up! They only stock trout in the spring and fall when the water temps are cool enough for the trout to survive.

Otherwise you wait all day and the police kick you
