65 were kept and 123 have been returned.

The weather has been against us again this week keeping angler numbers low. Anglers fishing along the margins with small black dry’s and wets are still having the best sport although lure’s such as Cut Throat Cat and Dawson’s Olive have accounted for some of the better fish. Our winter bait fishing will start on Saturday 1st November for details go to Winter Fishing. The dates for our 2015 fly fishing Courses are now on the Website go to Fishing Courses.
