Weekly Report Week ending 5th April 2015

Excellent fishing to the start of Easter, the improving weather conditions certainly helped with 636 trout caught for a rod average 7.4


Boat & bank anglers have enjoyed the good fishing with many of the fish caught within 20 yards of the bank.

To start the week the shallows opposite the lodge produced best but as we entered the weekend the corner of the wood, lonesome pine & farm bank became the “hot spots”

Floating or intermediate lines with damsel, buzzer & bloodworm producing best

Lots of small black buzzer hatching but as the weather improved towards the weekend we started to see a few of the larger grey/black buzzer hatching.

N James recorded a rainbow of 4lb4oz, M Cross a rainbow of 4lb12oz, Mike Cupitt fished the bank catching 14 trout on a damsel the best weighed 5lb6oz, A Miles 5lb11oz rainbow
