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 cold and breezy weather has 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. However the Beast from the East is occasionally causing problems where everything freezes over.
As usual tactics should be kept simple with floating lines, longish leaders and weighted flies being the most successful, particularly recently on bright late winter and early spring days.
If you want to you can fish sink tip or intermediate line on these brighter days, particularly on the Willow.
Flies of the month are damsels, cats whiskers, goldhead vivas and goldhead daddies. Flies mentioned are usually available in the Tackle Shop.
