Catch of the week:
Gerry Knight walked right round the reservoir during his recent trip and was rewarded by catching the biggest fish of the week, a nice 4lb rainbow from Pebble Beach taken on a 6g Mepps spinner.
Memorable Moment of the week:
Liam and Owen Evens had a day to remember Sunday. With an easterly wind making for difficult conditions, they well and truly bucked the trend catching two fish in their first two casts which included a blue trout for Liam around the 3lb mark.
Best areas and flies:
The Witch’s Hat around to the jetty has fished well for most of the week but easterly winds pushed fish away and into the middle sections of the reservoir Sunday. Orange Powerbait eggs have fished the most consistent this week, on the ledger method.

Best areas and baits / lures:Fly anglers found fish close in with most fish taken on slowly retrieved lure patterns such as Olive and Black Tadpoles and Cat’s Whiskers fished on an intermediate line with the mid section bays and inlets fishing well.

Newsflash: Bumper stocking this week for the Bank Holiday weekend including more double figure fish!!
