91 Anglers have caught 90 rainbows to 6lb 8oz
Rod average 1
43 fish were kept at an average weight of 2lb 4oz
The weather conditions have made fishing difficult and kept numbers low again this week. When we get some settled conditions the fishing will improve. Anglers should try fishing up and down the water column to find were the fish are feeding. Towards the end of the week a lot more fish could be seen feeding and fish were feeding on fry around the point, holy bush and jetty. I think sport will improve this week in the more settled conditions. During October Anglers can use the £20 4fish evening permit as a full day permit. Day boats are now £10 and outboards £5.
Anglers are reminded that the Brown Trout season has ended.
Derrick Grabham caught 8 from the top moorside block 1 on cat’s whisker and 6 on orange blobs. John McGarrell caught 6 to 6lb 8oz from the overflow end of the dam on Cats Whisker fished on an intermediate line. Gary Coverdale caught 6 to 3lb from the jetty on size 14 Griffiths Gnat. Dave Sanders landed 3 fish but had a lot more takes fishing foam beetle’s from the moorside.
Les Davison caught 10 rainbows to 6lb over 2 days fishing out from the Woodside and culvert on Olive Zonkers, Cats Whisker and Orange blobs.
