Best fishing time and methods
Spring and early summer, autumn. When the water level is high it is good to try lures that swim deep, e.g Jigs and leeches. Small wobblers should be used in the shallow water with big rocks. The west coast is suitable for fly-fishing (streamers and different wet-flies)
