Sweethope Fishing Report August 18th 2014

A new delivery of rainbow trout on Thursday has done much to perk up the current population and already established itself all over both lakes. Currently both lakes are fishing very well with Dave Moody from Berwick bringing 9 fish to the net yesterday and Reuben Poole from the Wansbeck and Blyth A.C. taking 3fish for 9lbs 11oz and returning a further 4 fish on Saturday.

I have tested the temperature in both lakes and we are currently at 15 degrees which is a great improvement.

Unfortunately gale force winds saw two competitions postponed on Sunday when conditions were unfishable but the fish remain to be caught another day.

We have been visited by 21 rods this week and31 fish have been caught, 21 returned to the water.

Successful fly patterns: Hopper, Viva, black hammer, black wets with a red tip, Hare’s Ear, Dawson’s Olive, Muddler and Fritz.
