Catch of the week:
Eric Morse from Middlesbrough landed six on the jetty including a nice 4lb rainbow using garlic chartreuse PowerBait. Mr. T Jolly from Guisborough caught eight rainbows in just 90 minutes; all on orange Powerbait after 3pm. Craig Husband and Neil Coates both from Lingdale fished towards the middle of the Dam Wall and ended their day with eight each. All of Craig’s were on chartreuse Powerbait paste but Neil had his success every time he changed to a new colour.
Memorable Moment of the week:
Jake Dale from Stokesley landed a super 4lb 12oz rainbow fishing his favourite spot along the bushes at the east end with ledgered chartreuse PowerBait.
Best areas and flies:
Conditions have vastly improved for fly anglers and all who ventured along the Dam Wall were rewarded. Black or green fritz lures, Red Montana, Hare’s Ear, Pheasant Tail Nymph and Butcher all caught fish.
Best areas and baits / lures:
The east end of the Dam Wall has seen by far the most activity this week for the majority of days. Orange and chartreuse Powerbait or white and chartreuse Mice-tail along with worm have produced the best results. Magic Dust and trout pellets in a feeder is a regular sure way to success.
Special message for the new week: With a steady summer forecast ahead and lots of sunshine locating the shoals is a priority, then you can work on finding the right bait to interest them.
