Fish 171 (season 3,206) Returns 41 (539) Road average 4.2 (5.9)

Predator fly fishing started on Wednesday 16 May and Keith Elliot marked the occasion by taking a 33lb 2oz Pike on the fly (witnessed by our ranger Mitch).

The week started well for trout anglers, with a bit of a dip mid week, but towards the weekend a good number of fish were being taken by boat anglers.

A number of methods are currently working, with lures proving popular. Some anglers have been catching with dries or buzzer crunchers.
