Now that winter has finally passed the fishing should start to improve. Although lakes that have a good head of silvers have been fishing quite well for the conditions.

Three Oaks has finally stocked the new lake. The official opening is set for 1st April. It has had about 3300 fish put into it and I must say it is looking good. One thing about it is that there have been no carp stocked although there are at least 3 stray ones in it.

The local commercials are still producing fish to those that scale down their terminal tackle. It is still a bit early to expect high double figure catches. Most matches are being won with about 30lb.

If you have any news from any of the local waters please drop me a line.
