Bright sunshine all week apart from Friday which was very wet, especially in the morning. As a result the rod average has been down on previous weeks. The water temperature has come down to a reasonable level so that we put some new stock in on Friday and will repeat the operation next week.
We were visited by Northumbrian Water Game Angling Club on Sunday who held a boat competition. Heaviest bag of three fish went to Phil Waggett with a total of 6lb 5oz. Heaviest fish was a 4lb 14oz rainbow, caught by David Turnbull.
