Rising trout in club pond

I have been watching several trout( stocked rainbow and brown) rising to the surface, and some seem to be swimming in circles, I think they are chasing each other (spawning?) I have tried several dry patterns, and I cannot get them to hit much. I have had only one take on a light henderson fly, and today on a grasshopper!! I don't think they really wanted these bugs, maybe they were just pissed off or something. Any ideas what to use. I had early success on black bh woolly buggers right after we stocked (10/15 approx.) but that has dried up too!

Thanks

club pond tactics

if your pond is anything like our club (malden anglers) these fish are sterile and will swarm in pods and circle all day, mimicking a spawning behavior. feeding gets smarter as fish acclimate to pond bugs. usual faire is midges and just under surface. we sometimes have success with occasional bwo or caddis on top but usually most fish midges just under. sunk griffiths knats or rojo midges work well for me. bead head prince and tiny midge emergers #20 and smaller with touch of split shot to keep fly 3 inches below surface during variable reteives seem to produce regularly. water boatmen and scuds also good choices. nothing wrong with the buggers as they work all times of year, but most guys increase takes by using sink heads. occasionally you can see path of feeders by following rises and anticipate where the next one will be, but these club pond fish get awful smart within a week or two after getting dropped in. good luck and have fun doing it while the ice is still away.

club pond

Hi; Thanks for the replies, re: club pond. I agree that it does not take long for these fish to get smart. I guess the fact that i have hooked about 40 of them and released them back into the pond may help to smarten them up too!

BTW, our pond (club) is in northern R.I. not Mass. Sorry, I think I left that out of my origonal post.

Hope the weather stays nice, it is fun to fish by you self.

Hi Mark. There's a club pond in Franklin, MA called Uncas Pond. Most people probably don't realize there's public access to it. Here's a map of it:
http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&z=15...,0.029182&om=1

The public access is via the ramp used for stocking the pond. You can park in the small dirt lot at the end of Florence St on the left hand side. You can't shore fish the pond, but a float tube, canoe, or other small boat is perfect for this small body of water. The access ramp is at the left hand side of the lot as you're facing the pond. You can drive down to the water to launch a boat, but only handicapped parking is allowed right by the water, so you'll have to pull your car back up to the dirt lot after launching the boat.
