Weekly Report ending 8th June

100 rods recorded 190 trout for the week for a rod average 1.9

Damsel pattern seemed to work best this past week with a lighter shade of olive working best although buzzer patterns as you would expect continue to take fish. Anglers who had success using buzzers reported catching with buzzer patterns fished between 10ft – 20ft down

The green bay and deeper water around the orange buoys have produced best although season permit holder John Everitt fished an evening session with dry sedge patterns taking 4 trout from the very top of the Thornton arm

Plenty of sedges about in the evening as well as caenis, late evening buzzer hatches have been a bit of hit and miss affair this past week.

Plenty of pin fry to be found along the stones and dam wall, a silver invicta, pearly pheasant tail are two good patterns to use when targeting trout feeding on pin fry

For trout feeding on caenis I find a single tups or sparkle gnat works well
