the storkreservoir: news of the month

May 2017


Last News: May is a good month for flyfishing in the reservoir. In fact, the trout activate regularly between two waters, and even like to come to the surface, for the greatest gladness of the fishermen.


My last flyfishing session: On 2017, march the 21. My friend Jean-Marie drive me to the reservoir, after two month I could'nt go out of my house, after an operation of my Achille tendon. The weather was cold and rainy (cf picture 1). jean Marie caught some nice rainbow trouts with wet fly (NTO) and streamer (CRF-1 and SFM-1) (pictures 2 and 3). For me it was much more difficult, as I still suffered a lot from my foot, I could not concentrate on fishing. But I nevertheless had the joy of capturing my first trout of the year, with a streamer (CBO).


Fish immersions: 2017, tuesday 02 may, 300 kg of big rainbow trouts, (average weight on 1,5 kg), came in the reservoir.

Recommendation: With hope that more fishermen can touch them, we ask you to release the rainbows above 2 kg.

Thanks for your fairplay fairplay .
