Illinois Trout Opener - Spring 2021

Took a few of my kids to this years stocked trout opener here at a local pond here in Chicago.     We were able to get our 4 person (20 Trout limit) in just over 2 hours.   The FlyKatFly Wooly Bugger in Olive and Black was the the most successful bug, but also caught fish with the Trout Pellet Mop fly and another new fly I'll be adding to the site here shortly that I call the the Green Weenie Critter.     We were having a lot of success where others were struggling with their various live bait and powerbait options.   We were the only ones fly fishing!
