Prospects and information for opening day 10 March

Just 2 days to go to opening day. The fishing should be excellent with around 1200 fish from 1lb 8oz to 8lb stocked just days before we open. In the past both ends of the dam, the high bank and the point have fished best. Lures such as Dawson’s Olive and Nomad, Cat’s Whisker and Black Fritz fished on intermediate or floating lines take a lot of fish, the best nymphs are Buzzers, G.R.H.E and Pheasant tail. Last year some bank and boat anglers caught up to 50 fish on open day. All boats are now booked for the 10th and 11th but there are still plenty left for the following weekend. The first of the weekly catch returns will start on the 12th March.
