Catch return for week ending Saturday 8th December 2007

Average weight of fish kept 2lb 2oz

The bad weather with heavy rain and very strong winds with snow kept angler numbers low.

Worm and maggot have caught equally 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.

There is still a very large head of supper quality rainbows from 2lb to the high teens in the lake as well as some excellent out of season brown trout, which must be returned to the water.

Lockwood opens at 10am and close at 4.00pm
