The mixture of high winds and bright sunshine doesn’t seem to have affected the fishing at all.

The rod average for last week was 8.89 with 640 fish caught by 72 anglers.

The heaviest rainbow this week was 4lbs 8oz, caught by Brian Braid on a dawlbach at the back of watersports island.

There were a number a browns caught. However , none of the weights were recorded.

The top spots this week have been Tower Bank, North of Brown Ale Bay, Halfmoon Field, Fishtail Creek, Upperfileds Bay and Sailing Club Island.

The most popular fly patterns used this week have been nymphs, buzzers, hares ears, daiwl bach, orange booby, hot head damsel and gold head montana.

Mostly intermediate and floating lines have been used this week.
