173 rods netted 1531 fish returning 1189 for a rod average of 8.8
The season got off to a flying start on Friday with 84 anglers braving the cold north wind and netting over 700 trout for a opening day rod average of 9.2. With the water level being down by three to four feet there is plenty of room on the banks this was found to be a bonus as the fish are well spread out with fish being taken from the boat pontoon, sailing club bay, Flamingo bay, hut point, Bramble bay, Sun blessed bay and the wires. The boats also fared well from the entrance of Flamingo bay the cascade and the gorse bushes.
Best flies have been black and green tadpoles, Damsels, Cats whisker, Boobies and Blobs, with some rods doing well on Buzzers. Mainly intermediate and sinking lines have worked best.
The best Brown trout was caught by Mr. Clive Wilkins and weighed in at 4lbs 12 oz. The best Rainbow trout was caught by Mr. Phil Harding and weighed in at 6lbs 2oz.
