Sweethope Fishing Report 20th July

Sunshine, wind and warm water continue to make angling challenging but after all it is July, what do we expect?

Ronnie Glass from Kelso visited on Tuesday and had a splendid afternoon, catching 9 rainbow and 2 blue trout. The early part and the late part of his session proved to be the most fruitful. Most of the fish were enticed out of the reeds on dries.

Saturday saw a visit from the float tube association. 7 rods caught and kept 14 fish and returned 3 to the water. A great day was had by all but unfortunately rain put a stop to the post match barbeque.

We were visited by 31 rods up to Saturday who caught 56 rainbow and 6 blue trout 44 fish were successfully returned to the water.

I must stress that at this time of year we must take extreme care not to stress fish when handling them and returning them to the lake.

Successful fly patterns: Dawson’s Olive, Kate McClaren, Diawl Bach, Muddler, Hoppers and Dabblers.
