Memorable Moment of the week:
Shaz Khan claimed the first tagged fish of the new year and £60. Shaz, from Newcastle, caught the fish at the meadow spinning with a Silver Toby.
  • Best areas and methods: The spillway west to the wire fence, the meadow, Hunter house and the oak tree have all produced fish recently. Ledgered Powerbait is the standard winter method, whilst Black Fritz, Olive Zonkers and viva coloured flies have been popular.
  • Please note: Stocking again this week!
  • Special message for the new week: Great time to land a tagged fish from the winter pool as the lower amounts have been claimed leaving the higher value tags just waiting for you!
