Sweethope fishery weekly report. 15th May 2016

The end of the road works and much improved weather is resulting in more fishermen and more catches. Both lakes are performing well and many anglers are bringing ten or more fish to the net regularly. Angus Slack fishing on the small lake brought 19 rainbows and 10 blues to the net on Thursday with a Blue Flash Damsel and Ken Glenton managed to bring 24 rainbows and3 blues to the net the same day, fishing with buzzers and klinkhammer.
