Commercial Fisheries: Lakes full of action

Larkwood – The fish have been a bit deeper this week, due to the bright weather, but the fish are still coming to the surface in the evenings and will come to small emergers. Black flies have also been the best bet with fish being taken on buzzers or black fritz on intermediate lines.

Hobbs Lake Trout Fishery – This week black and green montana appears to be the favoured fly, fished just below the surface with a slow retrieve.

Willow Lakes – Anglers at Willow Lakes are catching limit bags on a variety of flies and methods. Buzzer and hares ear nymphs fished static or retrieved very slowly are doing very well.

Rocklands – With buzzers in abundance over this last week and plenty of rising fish, both during the day and in the evening, it has been a very productive week on the banks. Whether fishing just under the surface with the likes of epoxy buzzers in black or olive or on the surface with dry flies such as klinkhammers or small black gnats, the fish have been biting.
