Ervey Lake near Kingscourt recently produced two nice pike weighing 14lbs and 16lbs. Both fish showed signs of spawning and were taken on popped up smelts. On Blessington Lake, a Dublin angler had a 17lb pike recently at Russelstown car park.  This fish was caught using a deadbait, was in good condition and had not yet spawned. Despite this, Blessington Lake has not been fishing as well for the time of year.
