Sport: Bank angler Peter Blight had a good day around the Bell point area. Peter landed 6 fish on a floating line and a small black lure with many more pulls and lost fish. Tony Newman caught his 7 fish at 2 trees near the jetty. Buzzers on a floating line was his best tactic. Out on a boat today was Colin Gibbons who landed 15 fish. His best tactic was to fish black and green lures on a di3 sinking line with willow island being his most productive spot. Mark Tyndall took out grandson Jack Flint and between them they caught 8 trout including 2 super fish for Jack, his first ever trout. Well done Jack. They caught their fish up in the northern shallows on washing lined diawl bach. Neil Thomas and Dave Curry had a great day afloat landing 21 fish between them. They found a variety of flies and lines effective and found fish both in the northern shallows and by the dam. Derek Moore and Felicity Appleton were amongst the fish landing 19 between them. They drifted all over the northern end of the lake and found several tactics working well. Pete Scholes and Bob Fitzpatrick caught 23 trout between them including a super 14lb rainbow for Bob. They drifted all over the lake and like other anglers got several methods to work. Tom Robson and Peter Crowe also brought over 20 fish to their boat with Tom landing a 12lb rainbow trout. Most of their fish were caught in the northern shallows. It was a similar story for Andy Axon and Craig Barr. They found fish where ever they fished and between them got different flies and tactics to work. With the light wind and reasonable temperature it was nice to see a good number of fish rising with a number of anglers catching on dry flies. Syotw Paul.
