Catch of the week:
This week Mr. Cristian had a fantastic session, landing eight fish quickly and returning to buy a second ticket. By 2pm, he had landed 16 fish coming in at a total of 29lb 4oz. The biggest was a brilliant 7lb 8oz, enticed in by a spinner. The rest were tempted in with orange and rainbow Powerbait.

Best areas and flies:
Small buoyant flies fished on a sinking line are still working well for fly anglers. The best areas are Hall Point from the boats and between the Middlemead car park and large valve Tower. Richard Smart had a great day with 20 fish (catch and release) at the start of the week fishing a team of buoyant flies on a sinking line.

Best areas and baits / lures:
Orange, garlic and rainbow have been the colours of the week for most anglers with many landing their limits during the week. Anglers who persevered through the storm at the end of the week were rewarded with lots of eight fish catches. Gold and copper, along with greens and blues have been best for spinners with the main Dam Wall doing very well at the start of the week. Saulius landed a stunning 7lb 8oz rainbow Wednesday as well as netting his limit using various spinners to great effect.

Please note: Boats are due back on the jetty at 17:30 and the banks also close at 17:30. Please make sure that you book a boat if you are planning a weekend trip.
