Memorable Moment of the week:
Eddie Moon landed the fifth tagged fish of the year. Eddie used an Orange Fritz to tempt the fish on the fly at Cronkley Meadow.
  • Best areas and flies: Bay of Plenty still producing and Millshield to Henrys Plantation. Small beetle patterns, Cats Whisker, Buoyant flies pulled across the surface starting to get a reaction.
  • Best areas and baits / lures:Between the two fences and Hunter house are the top areas. Ledgered PowerBait Eggs or Spring Green paste with Magic Dust and Sweet Corn in a feeder
Fly anglers should watch out for the annual Hawthorn fly hatch, expect lots of action on a floating line. For the bait anglers float fishing with baits near the surface would be the best way to target those rising fish.
