Catch of the week:
Mr. K Simpson had an excellent visit Saturday taking his catch limit which included the biggest fish of the week weighing in at 5lb, all taken whilst spinning.
Memorable Moment of the week:
Keith Rose only took up fishing recently and during his visit Friday was rewarded with his first fish... and what a first fish!

Weighing in at 4lb 10oz was a cracking bar of silver caught close to the Witch’s Hat using clear/white Powerbait eggs on a ledger rig.
Best areas and flies:
Fish are starting to return to the margins and anglers are starting to catch well in areas which have struggled in recent weeks, like the Witch’s Hat and the bay above the platform. Rain through the week has brought some good early evening hatches with a few daddies starting to appear.
Best areas and baits / lures:
The west end car park has again been the most productive spot with ledgered tactics the best method. White Powerbait eggs and Mice-tails have been the go to baits, bringing plenty of fish to the net.
