Sweethope Fishing Report May 4th 2014

Another successful week with a great hatch of buzzers. The wind has been from the East until Sunday which saw a fairly brisk Westerly, braved by 12 boats who caught 64 fish between them. The most successful angler was Steve Cochrane from Guidepost who caught and returned 13 rainbows and 1 brown trout on diawl bachs and a black c.d.c. His biggest fish was an impressive 5lb over wintered rainbow.

There is a large number of fit, strong, over wintered fish in both lakes this season – perhaps a result of the unusually warm winter which is causing much comment from visiting anglers.

We were visited by 75 rods who caught 237 rainbow, 5 blue and 6 brown trout; 207 of these were returned safely to the lake.

As the fly patterns testify fish were caught on a wide variety of flies including : Cats whisker, yellow dancer, black nomad, cormorants, buzzers, daddies, hoppers, diawl bach and cdc.
