24th Sep 2017 - Fishing Report w/e 24th September 2017

Cooler weather conditions and a reduction in water temperatures has led to many more fish coming to the net this week. Anglers have had great sport attracting larger rainbows and browns on lures and fry patterns as they begin to feed more readily. Buzzers, however, are still working effectively and some anglers are still having success on dries when the conditions are favourable. We welcomed a group from Miller Homes who thoroughly enjoyed their corporate day and coaching with Steve McCann. The fish of the week was a 10lb brown landed and safely returned by Alex Ainslie of Craster.
