Water in both lakes continues to cool as the Autumn progresses and the majority of fish are to be found at deeper levels. Occasionally conditions have allowed some sport on the surface as fish are seen in the top of the water and can be tempted with the dry fly. Small black lures, however, have been the most successful patterns.
Best angling performances have been by Peter Carr of Blyth who brought 8 rainbows to the net on Tuesday, recording his best fish as weighing 6lb and son James who took 3 rainbows and released 6 on Friday. Peter was fishing with a Dawson’s Olive, James with a black Zonker.
