Catch of the week:
Mr. J Heward brought two juniors with him and fished behind the garage catching eight rainbows in total but it was the youngest who was the star of the day catching six on ledgered blue-mango Powerbait.
Memorable Moment of the week:
JGirl Power! Young Lainey Garbutt from Redcar had a fantastic day with dad and older brother near the dog leg. Out of the eight fish caught she netted four of them including a 4lb rainbow caught on orange Powerbait and the best of the week at 5lb 1oz on pink beating dads best ever twice over.
Best areas and flies:
Brian Lees from Southbank returned two rainbows within an hour fishing a Mini-Cat’s Whisker along the west end of the Dam using short casts.
Best areas and baits / lures:
On various days the jetty and the south shore had their moments but it was on Saturday when the hotspot appeared around the dog-leg to the garage with the majority of anglers catching. Orange, pink and rainbow Powerbait, worm, white Mice-tails and spinners were all effective.
Special message for the new week: This week has been especially good for the number of larger fish between the 3lb to 5lb mark being caught in various areas of the reservoir on a variety of baits.
