Weekly Report ending 18th May

134 rods recorded 404 trout for the week for a rod average 3.0

Conditions mid week were perfect, good amount of breeze, cloud cover with some sunny spells at times with good hatches of hawthorn and buzzer ensuring the trout moved for most of the day

Anglers caught on daddies, hawthorn, hoppers, buzzer, diawl bach & damsel patterns with the Markfield arm and green bay been the most productive areas. Boat anglers should start picking up fish on the drift with the area between the main dam & wood a favourite area to drift.

Bank anglers should concentrate their efforts from the corner of the wood down past the lonesome pine to the farm bank, this area you should see good numbers of hawthorn this week.

Keith Cowen caught a 3lb13oz rainbow, R. Townsend 3lb, N Perkins 3lb14oz, Alex Rankin 4lb, Tom Gamble 3lb8oz, Mark Hunt 5lb4oz, 4lb3oz
