OLIVES are very active at the moment on both Carrickavantry and Knockaderry lakes. The HAWTHORN fly is expected to hatch in the next few days. Time to get the rods out and get fishing.
USEFUL TIP: Do not use under 7 LB. breaking strain line as the trout are quite large and hit the line fairly hard.

Well done to Sara who caught a fine Rainbow Trout on April 11th at Knockaderry, Waterford.
