21st Apr 2019 - Fishing Report w/e 21st April 2019

After cold start to the week fish were still moving and feeding high up in the water, as the weather gradually warmed up lots of fish have been feeding off the top, even so matching the hatch has also proved to be a challenge but anglers who succeeded have enjoyed some good sport. Small foam beetles were very successful on Saturday as the fish were feeding heavily on those, Buzzers and CDC Emergers have also been working well this week. Plenty double figured fish have been landed this week on both lakes.
