6th Jan 2019 - Fishing Report w/e 6th January 2019

Despite the cooler weather conditions this week, anglers have still been taking the majority of the fish in the first few feet of water, some anglers even tempting them up to Dries. Various lures fished early in the mornings proved to be successful, however when the fishing became slightly tougher during the day; small nymphs fish sub-surface accounted for a lot of the fish being landed. All five aerators have kept the ice at bay this week, during the colder weather through the middle part of the week. We are also very pleased to announce that we will be hosting the 2018/19 Junior Troutmasters Final on the 20th & 21st July 2019.
