The weather has largely been kind to anglers this week, light south westerly winds turning to the east on Friday, a deluge on Saturday and moderate south westerlies yesterday. Warmer weather conditions have produced a great hatch of Hawthorn flies and of olives and the surface of both lakes are covered in insect life.
Notable performances this week have come from Kieran Holliday from Prudhoe with a 12lb rainbow, caught on Black & Peacock, Kevin Pick with a 9lb rainbow and Guy Nicholson with a 15lb rainbow, caught on a Tequila Blob.
Northumbrian Water Angling Club had a meet on Sunday and 7 anglers took 13 fish. Best performance was from Kevin Pick with 3 rainbow trout for 13lb 10oz.
Number of fish taken: 56
Number of fish returned: 212 rainbows, 8 brown trout.
Number of visiting anglers: 77
