We only had 3 anglers fishing today but what a day they had all three had their limits. R Bainbridge kept 7 rainbows. He had bought two permits so that he could fish with two rods, but had to put one rod away because he was getting bites on both rods at the same time and had one rod pulled into the lake when he was landing a fish on the other one. He caught all his fish from the old slipway. Daniel Lilly and Peter Catherall Both had their four fish from the High Bank by 2pm. All three anglers lost fish off and all three were fishing with maggots and a feeder.
