Sport: Ken Whiteside got the day off to a flying start with eight trout whilst fishing on a half day ticket from the shore this morning. He commented that he had plenty of other takes as well. Ken’s catch included rainbows, browns and a tiger trout! God know where that has come from, I haven’t stocked it, but he showed me the photo and sure enough it was a 3lb tiger in great condition. As Ken was on a sporting ticket all his fish went back. His best areas were Bell Point and Barn Quarry and his killer tactic was his own UDF Damsel fished on a floating line.
John Turner and Ken Robinson had seven rainbows and three wild brownies to their boat. They too said that they had plenty of other fish on and off. Their best method was a team of wets: Kate McLaren’s, Invictas and Snipe n Purples fished tight in down the east bank.
Bob Fitzpatrick had eight rainbows and a 2lb brownie to his boat. He caught on a washing line set up fished on a floating line and the majority of his fish came to the diawl bachs on the droppers. His best area was tight in from Black House Bay to Curry’s and The Alders to the Spillway. He commented on just how close in most of the fish he hooked were, no more than a couple of feet from the shore.
Yesterday there was no report posted but Warren Baveridge is worth a mention with five fish on olive nymphs and white lures. He fished from the shore at Two Trees.
