With a lack of frost and rain this year, there’s still an abun­dance of weed, and the fish are wide­spread, too.

Ar­riv­ing at dawn, I cov­ered a few swims, even­tu­ally feel­ing a pike hit my lure in a very shal­low swim along­side a weedbed. Next cast, I man­aged to hook a mod­est pike.

Un­for­tu­nately, no more ac­tion came dur­ing the three-hour morn­ing ses­sion, which wasn’t helped by the num­ber of an­glers on the stretch, some fish­ing in known pike ar­eas.

It won’t be long be­fore the banks are de­serted, though, al­low­ing each and ev­ery swim on the stretch to be in­ves­ti­gated thor­oughly, many of which have the po­ten­tial to pro­duce a mon­ster pike.
