Perhaps as a result of the school holidays coming to a close the number of anglers visiting the fishery has been disappointing despite conditions being favourable. Catches have been impressive for those who have come to fish and those visiting on Sunday have done particularly well. Bob Cockburn and father brought 16 fish to the boat, Lucy Bowden and boat partner Howard 16 fish and Robbie Bell 11.
Conditions were windy and bright and the forecast for this week is light to moderate south easterly winds and variable cloud cover.
Number of fish brought to the net: 135 rainbow, 9 blue and 8 brown trout.
Number of fish taken: 10
Number of visiting anglers: 49
Successful fly patterns: Cruncher, Olive Worm, CDC Shuttlecock, Black CDC, Daddy, Dawson’s Olive, Daddy, Black Gnat, Damsel, Black Bits.
