Andrew Pieterse caught the first confirmed sea trout of the season earlier this week. This fresh fish of about 2.5 lbs came from the church commissioners and was caught on a tube fly. Other fish have been spotted and hopes will be high for the lower river as we enter May. Considerable effort has been reported by members fishing TWP, and the general consensus is that fish have been running straight through on plentiful water. Warmer weather is expected, and with it a more settled river.
