Weekly Report ending 29th June
88 rods recorded 106 trout for the week for a rod average 1.2
The cooler showery weather this past week has helped to clear the water.
Early part of last week a fast sinking line with booby or damsel patterns fished best however by the weekend the cooler showery weather did see some fish move up through the water column with some anglers reporting fish to dries, cruncher & diawl bach, however the morning session throughout the week fished far better than the late afternoon / evening session
As with many reservoirs this year we have an abundance of pin fry trout feeding on these have proved difficult to tempt with a few trout falling to a small mini cats whisker, silver invicta
Roger Guise caught 7 for his mornings visit on olive buzzer and damsel, Trevor Pegg fished a morning session to catch 8 to 3lb+ on a damsel, Mark Hunt fished a morning session to take 7 trout on a Quill cruncher and diawl bach, Rob Knap fished a fast sinking line and boobies to take his 8 fish, again during a morning session.
