Lenore timing

#1
Due to other commitments we will not be able to fish Lenore until about March 10-14. Will that be a reasonably good time to fish the North end?

Thanks

If anything, it will be too early. Most don't start fishing it until about the 3rd weekend in March. The best time is usually last week of March through the first week of April.

I fished it during the first week of March last year if I remember correctly and had some success, but most of the fish were pretty dark (must be the spawn, I guess?). Are the fish in better condition later in March? :confused:

No, they get worse as they get closer to spawning. By mid-April, most the fish are pretty hammered. There still can be some good ones, but earlier tends to be better quality in my limited experience. Some here I'm sure know better.

Thanks everyone for the input. We don't have much choice on the trip timing so I guess we will go and take our chances. Time to start tying up Chironomids.
