Catch of the week:
Danny Kenny had a cracking spell on opening day, taking his eight fish limit which included the biggest fish caught so far this season at 4lb 3oz. Danny’s catch weight was an impressive 20lb 2oz. All his fish were taken on ledgered worm.
Memorable Moment of the week:
Although the weather has not been kind the opening days sport was excellent, with twenty three limit catches recorded.
Best areas and flies:
The north bank close to the white post has proven a good area since opening day when conditions allow. Olive and Black lures have fished well.

Best areas and baits / lures: The jetty towards the Witch’s Hat has fished well since opening with fish being caught close in on the ledger. A variety of baits have worked well but orange Powerbait eggs, fished with natural worm have been an excellent starting point for anglers.

Newsflash: Early weekly stocking should keep the excellent sport going, with more big fish set to be stocked
