13 fished fly catching 45 fish rod average 3.4 and 17 fished bait catching 95 fish rod average 5.5

Average weight of fish kept 2lb 2oz

Rod Numbers were low due to the very bad weather.
The best fish of the week was again caught on fly, John McGarrell fished from the boat jetty and overflow end of the dam and caught 14 rainbows on dries and small lures his best three were 9lb 5oz, 6lb and 4lb.

Fly anglers fishing indicators with Cats Whisker or buzzer in the top 18in have had some success.

Worm and maggot have caught well with most of the rainbows been caught in the top 2ft and the browns on ledgerd worm or maggot fished close to the shore. The dam and high bank have fished best in northerly and westerly winds with the moor side best when the wind comes from the south.
