21st Oct 2019 - Fishing Report 20th October 2019

Temperatures touching 0 degrees a few mornings this week, and some slightly more settled weather. Some more nice tigers around the 4lb mark have been landed this week along with numerous fish around 10lb. Derek Todd landed the largest fish this week, which was estimated at a minimum of 15lb. The cooler water temperature has certainly made the fish a lot more active and the fish are in excellent condition giving the anglers some 'excellent sport'. Small Spiders played a large part of the trouts diet during the beginning part of the week, due to the huge numbers of webs drifting across the water, while these proved hard to imitate, small black foam beetles proved successful while the fish were feeding heavily in the top few inches of water. The Oddfellows angling club from Alnwick visited on Sunday, Alan Crowe landed the largest fish which weighed in at 5lb 7oz. Jason Clark had the heaviest bag weighing in at 10lbs for 4 fish on a cut throat cat.
