Sweethope fishery weekly report 4th July 2016

Wet and windy has been this week’s story! Some shelter has been found at the west end of the lake with some results on dry fly but by and large until today it has been back to lures and sinking lines. The busiest day with the most fish caught was Sunday with damsels and cat’s whiskers being the most productive fly patterns.

Today conditions are calm and the forecast is set to stay that way for a while. New stock arrived on Thursday and fish are moving on the surface, time for dry fly fishing again.


Number of fish taken:                   16

Number of fish returned:             88

Number of visiting anglers:          40

Successful fly patterns: Damsel, Cat’s Whisker, muddler, buzzer, Dawson’s Olive, Montana.
