Weekly Report ending 17th August

68 rods recorded 122 trout for the week for a rod average 1.8

A windy week kept rods off the water at times, but the bonus was the cooler weather the wind bought with it helping to reduce our surface water temperature to 18 degrees and towards the end of the week the fishing picked up with fish to be seen feeding off the surface with anglers over the weekend catching on daddies, hoppers & cdc patterns

Russ Martin fished a few hours opposite the lodge taking 4 fish on dries, Mick Glover caught 5 for his mornings visit on a washing line, Rodger Fell fished a daddy to take a 4lb8oz rainbow while Mark Hunt fished dries, cruncher, buzzer patterns to catch 16 for his weekend visit

With the cooler water temperature our buzzer hatches are returning with an evening rise giving good sport since the weekend.

Water clarity is good with boat anglers catching in the Thornton Arm, wood bank and as you would expect out in the main basin

Sport continues to be good this week with Mondays rod average 5.1 with the majority taken on dries & cdc with the cool forecast for the coming week our good sport should continue.
