Sport: The best catch from the bank today went to Robert Richardson with 5 fish. Robert caught his fish right in the middle of the dam wall on several different patterns. Landing 4 fish from the bank was Jim Baron who fished from Bell point. Jim too found various flies effective fished on a floating line. There were some super catches taken from the boats today with a number of anglers landing into double figures of trout. David Manning had a good morning landing 8 rainbows including a super 10lb+ fish. David caught his fish around willow island and the northern shallows with a washing line set up and buzzers on the droppers. Michael Carr caught his 9 fish from around the dam and the east bank with emergers on a floating line tempting all his trout. George Ashton and Steve Bland found fish all over the lake from the dam right up to the northern shallows. They caught steadily all day and found booby and cormorants on intermediate lines their best tactic. Also enjoying great sport were Bob Fitzpatrick and Pete Scholes who also found trout in all areas. As George and Steve, boobys and cormorants accounted for all their fish. Syotw Paul.
