Catch of the week:
Darrel Slee braved the strong winds at the weekend to take a fine eight fish catch limit from the north shore on a small red and gold Mepps spinner. Darrel’s catch included two very nice fish of 4lb.
Memorable Moment of the week:
After a slow start mid week Peter Cowan found good numbers of fish around the white post area on the north shore and had a terrific afternoon of sport returning 16 rainbows to 4lb on dry daddies and small muddlers fished on the surface.
Best areas and flies:
The Dam Wall and the north shore have been the two most consistent areas over the past week but the west end has produced some very good fish with several around the 5lb mark. Fish have been higher in the water than in previous weeks and anglers have had a lot of success with float fished worm, small Mepps or Toby spinners and various coloured Mice-tails ledgered on a long trace.
Best areas and baits / lures:
The Pebble Beach and white post areas have seen the best results for fly anglers with most opting to use floating lines and either dry flies or traditional wets.
