Catch of the week:
Richard Abbott from Consett netted a cracking 6lb rainbow Sunday despite the heat. Richard was using a mix of Powerbait near the Dam Wall.

Memorable Moment of the week:
Fish have been rising in huge numbers after around 6pm on an evening when the sun drops and the surface temperature begins to cool. These fish have been easily targeted using a range of tactics and techniques using both fly and bait methods.
  • Best areas and flies: Dawson’s Olive has been the fly of the week with lots of fly anglers using this as the best lure Imitation for fry. Daddies, hoppers and small black flies have also worked well
  • Best areas and baits / lures:Deeper water has been the most successful with bright, warm days pushing fish deep. The best catches have been recorded using ledger tactics at distance with a swim feeder full of trout pellets or Magic Dust as the attractant.
Numbers stocked continue to outstrip fish caught which means there is a large build up of fish numbers in the reservoir which, when conditions allow, will offer some tremendous sport.
