Weekly Report ending 6th April      Tel: 01530 230807

A steady weeks fishing for boat & bank anglers with 102 rods recording 339 trout caught for rod average 3.3

Bank & boat anglers are catching from the shallows of the Thornton arm in front of the wood and down to the lonesome pine with boat anglers also catching from the shallows at the top of the Thornton arm.

As we move into April expect catches to improve especially as the buzzer hatches increase from the farm bank & green bay area.

Noticeable this week the increasing number of trout caught on buzzers & cruncher patterns with the damsel pattern & mini cats whisker pattern also working.

On spooning fish caught this week a number have been feeding on buzzer, bloodworm & snails

If your coming to fish the bank we recommend you bring waders.
