April 2018

With the weather warming last week some good sport was enjoyed by both the fly anglers and  bait anglers.
Best flies have been Damsel patterns along with Bloodworms, Cats' Whiskers, Yellow Dancers and various blob patterns.

Buzzers working well in the calmer water. Best methods being sink tip or slow intermediate lines as the trout are still mid-water. With fish starting to rise on milder days. Some notable catches being -Mr Ferguson with 4 fish for13lb 8oz, best being 6lb 8oz on a Yellow Dancer.

P Fannon caught an over wintered rainbow between 11lb - 14lb which was safely released. He also released a fine brown trout of 5-6lb ,well done!!. P Thomson had 4 fish for 11lb 8oz on a Squirmy. Some anglers still being broken by larger fish due to inadequate tackle.
Prospects good with some settled weather for evening rises with dry patterns being top method.
Small items of tackle are available in the on-site tackle shop.
