The Fishemens Lodge.
The Fishemens Lodge is now complete. It has its own electricity supply and an electric kettle. It will soon have a refrigerator to keep your sandwiches and beer cool and later a microwave oven.
It is situated on the southern end of the Willow, between the Willow, the Mill and the Upper Cascade.
The recent cooler and breezier weather has greatly improved fishing conditions on all lakes. To take immediate advantage of these conditions all lakes have been stocked to near maximum capacity. So catch them if you can says Neil.
As usual tactics should be kept simple with floating lines, longish leaders and weighted flies being the most successful, particularly recently on bright early spring days.
If you want to you can fish sink tip or intermediate line on these brighter days.
Flies of the month are damsels, cats whiskers, goldhead vivas and goldhead daddies. Flies mentioned are usually available in the Tackle Shop.
