Not many anglers ventured out during another wet and windy week. However a rod average of 3 shows things are definitely improving. The water still has some colour but fish are seeing flies no problem.
Best method has been to bank fish with a floater and weighted lures or an intermediate with unweighted lures. Slow retrieve is important.
Fish are well spread over the whole lake. On a rare calmer morning yesterday there were good numbers of fish rising although most anglers are catching at a depth of 2-3 foot.
This week there has been a massive improvement in catches.
Yesterday, Monday 2nd, Steve Cracknell caught 16 on white/green lures. Alan Rennocks 12 and Pete Welch 9 both caught on lures and buzzers under a bung.
Roy Whitwell caught on a black diawl bach including the 3lb 5oz overwintered fish below.
