    October 9th – 15th

    137 anglers caught 557 fish of which 435 were returned.

    Best Fish
    7lb 8oz Rodger Dickinson, tequila booby
    6lb 4oz Lazloe Boden, Rothwell, pin fry, boat
    6lb 2oz Brian Carter, Peterborough, white/green lure
    6lb 2oz Darren Oram, Aldwincle, black buzzer, boat
    6lb 0oz Lazloe Boden, Rothwell, pin fry, boat

    6lb 4oz Dave Anderson, Rothwell, black buzzer

    Best Areas
    Bank – dam, brookside, boat bay
    Boat – most areas producing fish although lodge end best

    Best Patterns
    Black hopper, wet daddy, black buzzer, red apps, red diawl, Montana, tequila booby.

    Another good weeks fishing where the rod average beat 4. The dam end is holding large numbers of fish although good quality trout are coming from all areas.
    In calmer conditions there are plenty of fish rising to the decent hatches of buzzers. On windy days fish are being taken 1 to 4 foot down with fish feeding on daphnia, corixa and buzzer pupae.
    If the sun is out then boat anglers are doing best. On the many cloudy days last week the bank sport was as good if not better than boat.
    The fish are in excellent condition and a good proportion are 3lb+.
