Catch of the week:
Kevin Fuller from Cockfield caught an eight fish catch limit from the Dam Wall with his fish weighing in for an average of 2lb each. Kevin was using yellow Powerbait with a short trace from his ledger to keep his bait close to the bottom.
Memorable Moment of the week:
Young angler Josh Wrightson was fishing with his dad on the north bank and caught four fish on a Mepps spinner with the heaviest weighing in at 2lb 4oz. Not bad considering it was Josh’s first time fishing and now he is well and truly hooked.
Best areas and flies:
Some good early evening hatches have brought lots of fish into the margins feeding from the surface. However, the bulk of the fish caught have been in deep areas using fast sinking lines and slow retrieved lures with lots of fish taking on the drop.
Best areas and baits / lures:
With the hot weather continuing, anglers fishing in deeper areas are still having most success. The Dam Wall has produced a good number of catch limits with Gulp eggs proving to be popular with a number of anglers. Mepps and small Toby spinners have also worked well with some people preferring to keep on the move and hunt the shoals of fish.
