Water Temperature at 6ft 18C; Secchi disk Clarity 2.2m

Things at the Lake are starting to settle down with anglers going out two to a boat during our day and evening sessions. Catches have been superb on the dry fly with mayfly patterns but the fish are now going a little deeper and are a little cannier than when we first opened. A buzzer suspended 10ft down is a good option. In the warm weather in the calm water there has been phenomenal fish activity especially late at night as we approach mid-summer. We plan to build a new booking and paying system in the background which is more customer friendly and to continue with this system for the rest of the season. In the mean time please book and pay online prior to arrival. If you have any problems please phone.

We plan to kick off a socially distant boat league from Wednesday 26th June at 6pm. New members welcome. £20 entry fee. Prizes dependent on the number of entries. There will be no results given at the end of the night. Please contact the fishery to register or reregister an interest.

Some nice specimens this week – and happy liberated anglers. Greg Picken with a 9lb 9oz brownie taken on a dry fly yesterday – the 2nd biggest caught on the Lake that we can remember Below – Lindsay O’Hara about to return a wise cracking blue. Barry Tyndell playing a trout this morning.
