Catch of the week:
Raymond Whaley managed to catch the largest fish of the season with his 5lb 8oz rainbow trout. The fish fell to a 10g Toby spinner whilst fished from the boat. Mr. Whaley managed another six fish, three were taken at Matthew’s Linn with the rest caught from the Quarry along the shore to Hawkhope. All were taken on the same Toby Lure.

Memorable Moment of the week:

Julek Kowalski from Galasheilds had previously fished without success but undeterred, was trying his hand for a second time at Tower Knowe where a large shoal of fish were present and Mr Kowalski managed to land his eight fish in just half an hour!

He decided to then purchase a catch and release ticket and caught another three fish through the remainder of the day.

  • Best areas and Flies - Belling Inlet and Scotch Rocks with Black Bullet Coneheads, waggle tails and Ace of Spades.
  • Best areas and baits / lures:Tower Knowe, Matthew’s Linn and Kielder Waterside with worm, Powerbait and spinners/spoons.
