I also didn't see it on the list of stocked lakes over the past few years.Early in the year (april or may) I met a young guy at Kerney Lake (the small area on the right), who caught a 16" trout. He showed it to me, and I couldn't believe my eyes. I used to fish a still water connected to Kerney Lake, but once the bass got in there, the trout disappeared. I heard it was still stocked, but I didn't notice it on the list of stocked lakes in Halifax.
Anyways, I agree with the previous post, they must be in there, but I've only caught a little 8" trout there so far this year.
Basically it's on the right if your driving from Halifax toward hamonds plains. It's a small still water that flows out to a large water falls area. I used to fish the falls also, and followed a path in the woods to another still water (that used to be productive). I heard of people catching them under the bridge, but I usually fish in behind that area (a short walk through the woods).I also didn't see it on the list of stocked lakes over the past few years.
Which area "small area on the right" are you speaking of? There's the area on the right of the K.L. road and then there's the run-off from under the bridge near the wharf. I've seen trout when I used to swim underwater as a kid. yesterday I saw a few small fishes (6" range) chasing my lures. Assumed bass. I've caught bass alongside of the lake near the K.L. road.
Anyone ever try that area left of the bridge? Looks like prime bass country to me. Yesterday I saw a bunch of fish break the water in that outlet from under the bridge.
I was over there one day in April for only about an hour and caught two trout and one was 19 inches and 4 pounds. I posted pictures but I they got taken down as I took them once I got home. I wasn't using anything special either, just a silver spinner. Also caught a 13 inch trout which I hit on my first cast. Best of luck to ya!Just wondering if anyone fishes at Kearney Lake. If so, when was the last time you've caught trout in the lake? I've caught smallies in the lake over the years but haven't seen any trout since I was quite young.
