report week ending 14/04/2013

Posted by & filed under Reports.

1,000 fish caught last week, what a difference a couple of weeks make. A few days of warmer weather and we are off to a flyer also with the weather looking more settled the prospects are looking good for this coming week

131 rods caught 1000 trout for a rod average of 7.6

The fishing from the banks have been a bit of a patchy this week with some rods doing very well and others finding the going slow, but those that can put out a good line against the strong cold east north east wind have done well but with the improvement in the weather again over the week end has helped to improve the fishing, With fish now switching on to buzzers and diawl batch to both floating lines and midge tip lines olive and black buzzers doing best.

With the wind over the weekend switching to south westerly direction and looks likely to remain for most of this coming week its a far better direction for the bank anglers

The water level has dropped slightly over the weekend giving more room in the margins in some areas, and the clarity is still very good. The boats continue to fish better than the banks with numerous catches in the teens lots of fish showing on the far side of carvers arm to damsels and cats whisker other boats have fared very well in flamingo bay on intermediate lines on damsels, boobies. Floating and midge tip lines with buzzers and diawl batch have also been productive for the boats over the weekend.
