Pick out your Damsels and Cat’s whiskers again this week for some exciting fishing around the sailing club bay and Flamingo Bay with good catches reported from these two areas all week. The week started very well with Mr D Dodds taking over 20 fish from the banks around Flamingo bay on black and green buzzers while Mr C Roland also netted over 20 fish from his boat between hut point and number8 buoy on sinking lines and cat’s whisker. By Wednesday fish were moving and feeding down from the cascade as Mr Batthurst found taking 17 fish on gold head cat’s whisker. Friday was a bumper day with a rod averages of 11 with the majority of the fish hitting various damsel patterns. The fun still carried on over the weekend with the bigger fish coming out to play.


Mr Joe Woodward netted over 20 fish to his boat the best being around 7lbs , while Mr. M Sail banked a 6lbs 8oz rainbow. Derby county angling club member Mr Jacks and his son again banked over 20 fish to 7lbs from the bank in front of the lodge


Best fish so far was a stunning 8lb plus rainbow caught from the bank by Mr Ian Jobe. While Mr Lawrence had the biggest brown trout of the week a 6Lbs 13oz specimen which was one of his 8 fish.


The winner of this week’s prize draw of a free all day boat voucher went to Mr D. Ashford of Allestree.
