 Weekly Report ending 16th June

86 rods recorded 266 trout for the week for a rod average 3.1

A better week for us with anglers finding the majority of the trout in the deeper water around the orange buoys & in front of the dam with anglers on the drift with a fast sinking line and boobies or snakes doing well.

Some anglers opted to fish from an anchored boat using their floating lines but with leaders in excess of 25ft with all the buzzer patterns on the lower 8ft – 10ft of the leader, this can be fished with or without an indicator

Damsels are increasing in numbers every week its not surprising therefore that damsel nymph patterns have also featured on last weeks returns.

The morning session seems to be producing best, although this coming weeks forecast of overcast conditions and slightly cooler temperature will certainly help the late evening fishing

Geoff Willis caught a 3lb rainbow, A Lawson 3lb, Nev Welsh 3lb, Chris Sayer 3lb, Tony Lorrimer 3lb8oz, Louis Conway 4lb8oz, Neil James 3lb8oz, 4lb9oz, Chris Carey 4lb9oz, Norma Prime 3lb9oz, Mark Hunt 4lb12oz, 4lb8oz

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