Sweethope continues to fish well with anglers achieving great results from both lakes. Best performance of the week undoubtedly came from James Carr who returned 54 fish on Saturday to win the Troutmasters fish-off. Billy Emery wasn’t far behind with 30 to the net.
Stewart Younger also fared well on the lower lake on Sunday returning 25 rainbows and 2 blues. Phil Green fished the lower lake on Wednesday, bringing 1 brown and 36 rainbow trout to the net.
We will continue to stock the lake with healthy, strong rainbow and blue trout and will shortly be stocking some tiger trout.
