SPRING INTO FISHING
With the start of spring and some great weather many of our Fishing Club members have retrieved their fishing gear from the back of the cupboard or shed and hit the lake or beach to try their luck at catching some good size fish. For those lucky members who have boats or mates with boats that adds even more enjoyment to our favorite past time.
There has been lots of good size salmon and flatties caught in the lake over that last couple of weeks so if you haven’t been out yet now is a great time to dust of the rod and enjoy our beautiful area and catch a few fish.
