How can I find out when fish stockings are?

Say like in frazier park tait ranch trout ranch? I was fishing there today and got kicked out by the sheriff because the helicoptors had to come and take the water from there to spray at the fire. And whats a good artificial bait that you can throw and reel in for trout like recommended spinners and would tubes work? Thanks

How far should I be able to cast a line with a baitcast reel.

I have been using spinning reels for over 20 years, but got into using baitcast reels because I am looking into catching bass and stuff. Well, when i cast my line using my baitcast reel it only goes about 20 yrds. Is that usual or should be it be way more? If anyone has any tips or anything please let me know. I have been using a rapala DT04 due to it carrying a little more weight so my cast is a little further.
