  • Trout pond/lake for a 12 year old beginner?

    Any advice for a good spot to take my 12 year old son to learn to cast a fly rod and hopefully catch some trout? He is pretty good with a Zebco 33, bobbers, worms, and bluegills but he wants to learn to fly fish with me. Headed somewhere this Sunday for a day trip, was thinking about the little pond at Amicalola State Park, unless anyone has any better suggestions. Also, any good stream spots nearby to the State Park if he gets the hang of it quickly?

    Thanks in advance and tight lines!

    The lake at Vogel State Park is stocked with trout. Might have to use a weighted booger with a split shot to get down to them. That may not be the best rig to learn to cast with tho. Plenty of open areas for casting and trails around the lake. Also trails along the lakes feeder creek (shallow). It holds trout.

            Will the lake at Vogel be stained right now with all the recent rain?
