March & April 2013

The 2013 season was dominated by extremes of the local weather. The opening months of March and April featured snow on the surrounding hills with, melt water coming into the Lake via the feeder stream and the occasional snow shower to test the fortitude of the anglers.

The early season fishing gave good sport for the hardy souls who ventured out. The fish were in superb condition and both the rainbows and brownies fed hard at times and gave good sport to both sinking and floating lines. Whitegates fished well on some days.

Brian Owen had a bag of 18 brownies and 2 rainbows on bumbles and black and green lures fish on an intermediate line. Paul Makin had 11 brownies (best 1.25 lbs) and 8 rainbows (best 4.0 lbs) taken on Bumbles, Montanas and Caddis fished on floating and intermediate lines.
