Catch of the week: Keith caught a lovely 3lb 3oz rainbow trout using an Orange Blob with a gold head. Well done Keith!

Best areas and flies: Small buoyant flies have done well, fished slowly on a Di7. The area around the cages did well for most fly anglers using small black, green or orange coloured flies.

Best areas and baits / lures: Garlic, salmon egg and rainbow have done well on the Powerbait with anglers finding the fish around the cages and by the large valve tower. Small gold, green and copper spinners did the trick for most anglers with most fish coming from the deeper water fished with a slow retrieve.

Please note: The fishing season is now closed until March. Thank you for visiting us this year, and we look forward to seeing you again in the coming season.
