Weekly Report ending 24th August
112 rods recorded 271 trout for the week for a rod average 2.4
Swallows & martins have worked the water all week it’s not surprising therefore that Daddy, cdc, shipman’s buzzer & hopper patterns have stood out this week with claret for the cdc and shipman’s patterns working best.
Excellent buzzer hatches have provided good evening rise this week with trout feeding all across the reservoir.
Tom Hutchinson caught 10 on a foam backed daddy, Mick Glover fished buzzers to take trout up to 4lb1oz, Clive Holt fished the last four hours and enjoyed the evening rise boating 14 trout, Scott Wilson used a hopper, daddy & buzzer patterns to get his catch of 14 trout, Paul Martindale fished the washing line to take his limit, father & son Mathew & Fergus Liggins fished the last four hours and evening rise using daddies and buzzers to boat 11 trout. Mark Hunt fished daddies & orange hoppers to catch his 7 trout with Alex Ranking picking up his catch of 7 trout from all over the reservoir. Mick Norman followed advice given at the lodge and fished a daddy and claret cdc to boat his 8 trout.
Looking at the weather forecast its looking good for the fishing this next week, and we fully expect our good surface sport and evening rise to continue.
Water temperature is around 16 degrees with water clarity good.
