Sweethope fishery weekly report 20th June 2016

Overcast but still conditions have produced a great hatch of insect life on both lakes and most anglers have achieved success on dry fly patterns and nymphs.

Alan Morton especially enjoyed a great evening on Saturday, fishing dries from a boat on the top lake in perfect conditions.

Work in the bottom lake has been successful in clearing most of the weed some work remains to clear some of the shallower areas in the margins. A big thank you to Aqua Contractors from Moffat, all that remains now is for me to don my waders and pick up my scythe!

Number of fish returned: 120 rainbow ,23 blue and 8 brown trout

Number of visiting anglers: 75

Successful fly patterns: Sedge, hopper, orange nymph, mayfly, black and peacock, bibio, cdc, emergers, cat’s whisker.
