intermediate or faster sinking lines to be your best bet with probably
white and green Cat’s whisker first choice of lures. A black and
green Cat’s whisker or Orange blob
will be worth trying, all to be fished with a very slow retrieve on the bottom. Boobies on fast
sinkers and short leaders are also taking fish.
Nymphs, as the water temperature increases, on floating lines and a
10’ leader, with a slow retrieve, with Montana's and Bloodworm bound to take
spot to fish is usually lodge bay, especially as a lot of fish were
stocked in this area, but fish can generally be found all round the lake.

Trout Season started with a three day freeze and then a
“Bang” as the fish came out!
With 351 trout in at Riverside Road, the
Trout section were waiting with bated breath for the start of the season
on Friday 3 March, then came the big freeze which lasted for three days.
The Committee agreed all members unable to fish could, by arrangement,
“bank” their tickets for use another day. Thankfully, the ice
started to melt on Sunday evening.
Then came Monday 6 March with the water free
of ice and we were off. Fishing was a bit more challenging than at the start
of last years season, with the fish very deep and “taking”
very gently but they were there and they did come out fighting furiously.
Four anglers reported taking their three
fish limits with one rather special fisherman taking the first real
“biggie” at just under 6 pounds. Welcome back to the section Clive Butcher, you lucky fellow. Fortunately for us, a camera
was to hand so the success was recorded. For the record, the fish landed
by Clive were one at 5 lbs and 15 oz, one at 2 lbs and 11 oz and the
“tiddler” at only 1 lb and 14 oz.
