Catch of the week:
The man in form at the moment, Mr S Y Hui, was on the banks again and
landed a lovely eight fish catch totalling 17lb with the best of the bunch, and also the biggest of
the week, a well conditioned 4lb rainbow.

Memorable Moment of the week:
Tagged fish were landed on consecutive days by William
Stobo of Stocksfield and Paddy Bell from Benwell. Both gentlemen left with a nice bonus of
£130 and £100 respectively.
Best areas and methods:
The hard frosts certainly slowed sport down but on the milder days,
with a little sunshine to warm the water, limit catches are still being taken. The meadow on the north bank is still producing a few fish and catches have also been reported from west of the
sailing club.

On the south bank anglers have had success at Pow Hill, fishing at close range in the shallow water, contrary to what all the books say. The area west from Pow Hill to HunterHouse should also be well worth a try. Ledgering Powerbait is almost obligatory with lower water temperature, while fly anglers should search various depths with a fast intermediate line using varied retrieves.
