Fishing Report 5/8/2022

The fishing is really heating up! Water levels are great, the water temperature is heating up and it looks as though we have some great weather ahead of us. The smallmouth have entered their prespawn phase and are heavily feeding. The trout have been very happy chasing a wide range of streamers and nymphs. There has been numerous hatches going on the past week but today was the first day we saw fish feeding off the service. There was a decent caddis hatch took place this evening so dust off the old dry fly box!

Most of our weekends have booked up for the rest of the month but we do still have a few mid week dates available so give us a ring to book a trip!
