Weekly Report Week ending 25th May 2015

Water clarity is excellent with large buzzer hatches and daphnia the trout can pick and choose their morsel and are therefore not as easy to catch, it makes for some interesting fishing.

Anglers are reporting and we can also see from the lodge large numbers of trout moving and feeding with some of the evening rises were having the best we have seen in a number of years.

Pete Cox fished on a damp and windy Monday to catch 7 on live buzzer, Richard Dayman fished orange blob and damsel to take 13 fish to 4lb while T peg fished a black diwal bach to catch 18 fish to 4lb, the blue flash damsel has worked well this past week helping Paul Martindale take 5 trout for his morning session as did David Burr recording 10 trout for his visit, Tony Lorrimer caught 11 for his visit including the best fish of the week a rainbow of 5lb+ returned.

Mark Hunt, his brother and a friend from California took our advice and came for the evening rise they weren’t disappointed all catching and missing a good number of fish on dries and emergers.
