Weekly Report ending 13th July


66 rods recorded 101 trout for the week for a rod average 1.5


Cooler mornings are generally fishing best with the deeper water producing best. With the warmer weather most anglers are reaching for their sinking lines with booby, blob and damsel patterns however on the cooler overcast days a floating line with buzzers has also worked with John Gunby and R Dayman catching 11 trout for their mornings visit on buzzers and millar nymph.


With the heat we have some algae in the water but visibility remains reasonable.


Damsels are around in increasing numbers with hatches of sedge, caenis and a small green buzzer in the evening, to see what the trout were eating the night before have a look at spider webs on the lodge building they will be full of the night previous hatches.


Fry are in abundance with trout feeding on them in front of the main dam, stones & green bay
