Catch of the week:
David Dunn caught the biggest fish of the week weighing in at 3lb 10oz which was the standout fish in his 8 fish limit catch. All his fish were taken on the float near the White Post on Garlic and Rainbow Powerbait Paste.
Memorable Moment of the week:
Congratulations to 7 year old Tommy Heslop who caught 4 fish on a credit cruncher permit, on what was only his third fishing trip. Keen to try out spinning Tommy took all four fish on a small Mepps from the Dam wall.
Best areas and flies:
Strong winds have once again put off visiting fly anglers this week but for those who braved the conditions there was some good returns. Best area has been the North Bank near the Spill Way. Black and Olive Zonkers have done well on fast sinking lines with a fast retrieve.
Best areas and baits / lures:
Due to strong winds the margins have been coloured up with cloudy water. A good tactic was to cast further out onto the edge of the coloured and clear water. The Witches’ Hat and Lodge front have been the best areas this week.
Lots of fish have been caught on the float with a long trace with Mice tails in various colours and natural worm taking the most fish.
