Report updated 21st September 2018.
  During the last week, 77 fishermen caught 211 fish, including 19 over 4lb. Average catch rate 81%.  

Best recent catches :


    Rainbows. 9lb 12oz. Colin Beddoe.  
      9lb 7oz. Ian Odin  
      7lb 12oz Mick Homer.  
      7lb 12oz. Mike Richards.  
    Browns. 8lb 1oz. Chris Green.  
      8lb 1oz. Dave Dean..  



Even during this hot weather the fishing continues to be excellent. The water is still crystal clear. The hot sun is not ideal for fly fishing but for those anglers persevering with small flies, the rewards have been good.. The best flies have been the usual goldhead damsels,along with orange lead-heads fished on the drop and cats whiskers retrieved quickly. Lots of fish have come out on buzzers and dries, but it`s mainly been goldhead nymphs that are working best.

The annual September Singles competition was held last week. Twenty five fishermen attended this year to battle it out for the trophy. Paddy Hill was the winner this year, with 3 fish weighing in at 17lb. Kev Hunt was second with Keith Potter in third.
