Oh man they're easy. I simply remove their heads then slice along their belly to remove the innards. Place a quarter of a lemon and some butter inside then cook in the oven in a roasting pan. They are awesome, my favorite by far!

You don't do anything to the outside? Scrape with a spoon or nothing?

Nah, no scraping because no scales. I remove the heads too, but you don't even have to do that.

Of course you'll want to wash them out really well inside and remove any veins. You won't be disappointed.

Thanks guys, I know y'all from East TN are laughing at my ignorance but I have never seen a live trout, much less caught or cleaned one.
It is officially the easiest thing I have ever cleaned.
Took about 12 seconds.
Got stuff to do tomorrow and Thursday but I will get off early Friday and I am going after my limit of 7 that afternoon \:\)
Will post pics later.
Thanks again !

Gut the trout, nail it to a board and bake at 350 for 30 minutes, scrape it off the board and eat the board. Lol. I cut I to strips when removing the y bones even though they are too small to worry about. When I get strips I bread and fry them because I don't like the taste of trout much but they are good fried.

My favorite is smoked, either by itself or made into a dip which I can devour in minutes.

Crispy skin is also pretty good. Usually the best part if done right.

Cut off the head, and gut the trout. Open the belly and get the guts out. There might be a little bit of a black line along the back...get that out. Just run your finger up and down along the spine, that should work.

Then season the inside with seasoning of your choice, put a slice or two of lemon, and a couple pats of butter inside. Wrap in foil, and start your charcoal grill. When the fire dies down, and you have coals, cook on side for 7 minutes. Then 6 minutes on the other side. Then it should be done or close to it. That's how we do it on our fishing campouts. I prefer mine in fillets instead of whole.

I agree with Carlos on cooking trout with lemon and butter and I add Tony Chachere's Cajun Seasoning to the outside before cooking. And I would love to know the recipe for that dip, I eat a lot of East TN trout!

These recipes are all great, but I like it simple. Clean as described, then simple roll them in white flour with salt and pepper and fry in oil. Great in a campground in a cast iron skillet over coals or camp stove.

For crying out loud, DO NOT REMOVE THE HEAD! What else is going to sit there and stare at your wife while she eats it? If nothing else, leave it on for aesthetics.

See video for cleaning trout.

Stockers are best smoked. Mix leftovers with some cream cheese and chives.

Fried in cornmeal works also.

Trout are very simple to cook but some folks do not likes the taste of trout. Ruger, if you do not like them; just put all your trout in a cooler with ice and mail them to me. ;\)

In the "city lake" at Martin.
TWRA stocked them and I heard they were gonna do it again shortly after the first of the year again.
Dunno if that is true or not.

I know it is not like catching a wild trout but still pretty neat to me since until two weeks ago I had never caught one. \:D

stocking schedule is posted on the TWRA website. Search for "TN winter trout stocking schedule" or something to that effect and it should come up.

Basically, every place that gets trout gets stocked twice (and a few get stocked 3 times, I think). It's typically one month apart from each other in December and January.

Good luck! I haven' gone out the first time for them yet, but I plan on it soon.

Just add some fresh slaw and some lemon wedges and that is perfect for me.

My favorite way to cook them is with a picatta sauce. For two stocker sized trout (10-12 inches) heat a pan up with 1/2 cup of olive oil, 2 tbsp of butter, about 1/4 cup of fresh chopped parsley, 2 tbsp of lemon juice, 2 tbsp of fresh lemon zest, and capers to taste. I like a lot of them. Prepare the trout as mentioned, head cut off, guts cleaned out. Place them in the pan on medium heat, cover, and turn them over every few minutes to make sure they're evenly cookec. The meat flakes off the bone easily but make sure you dump all that picatta sauce in a bowl for dipping forkfuls of trout into it eith each bite. It's delicious.

Tip: Trout that are wild or have lived in their natural environment for a while taste much better than ones that were just recently stocked and have lived most of their lives confined in concrete pools being fed pellets. When I fish the Caney, I usually throw the recent stockers back and keep the larger, fatter ones that appear to have lived there for a while. Can't wait to finally land a 24+" brown and eat it.

Ruger, that's just not the same as "floating" down a wild & scenic river!

Try the North Fork of the Obion. This is a fabulous float trip, and the North Fork is famous for its year-round fine fishing. You can put in near Latham and take out near Duncan's right before Union City. Just be careful not to get past Duncan's.

Check out some of the deep pools as you pass thru the Terrell Bottoms. The water in the North Fork is too warm for trout most of the year, but you might find one anywhere along this stretch during January-February. And some big browns have been seen just below Duncan's.

In one post, you said to be sure not to get past Duncan's. Then the next post, you said there are big browns just below Duncan's.

I'm worried that you are luring him into some sort of trap...

If you had ever smelled Duncan's, which I am assuming is the tankage plant, you would understand.

Yes, I was referring to the Duncan Tankage Plant.

There are several reasons why not to float past, including lack of good take-out points, loss of water quality, and of course, the downstream aroma when Duncan is stirring it up.

I've never caught a rainbow on the North Fork past Duncan's.

On the dip, not jb3 but this is how I make it.

This is not specific to trout, any mild/flaky fish ought to do. I have used crappie and catfish in mine mainly.

Smoke the fish, either whole or fileted at about 200-225 until done, my favorite is hickory.

Let it cool down, chilled in the fridge is best because it will concentrate the smoked flavor more.

Shred it up and mix with a package of Rondele or Boursin dip, and add another pack or two of regular cream cheese and you are ready to eat.

You can add a little sour cream if you want a little lighter consistency to it as well, depends whether your dipping or spreading it on something I guess.
