Pike spawning late

Posted in Category(ies):  Pike fishing reports

Low water levels and rapid rise in water temperatures slowed the move to the spawning beds. The usual beds were empty of any moisture whatsoever forcing the hens to spawn in a more hostile environment. Disappointing personally as I look forward to seeing these wonderful animals frolicking in the shallows with dorsals, heads and tails regularily breaching the surface.

All through April pike fishing was good with best results going to the enigmatic fly. Water temperatures were ideal for fly fishing as the pike were in the shallows however this quickly changed toward the latter part of the month due to a hot spell. April is a great month for pike fishing and this one has been no exception.
