It has been another amazing week’s fishing with catches coming from all around the lake.

It was a great start to the week with catches up to 11 fish in a bag and specimens of 12lb being caught and from there it just got better and better.

Saturday saw one of the best day’s fishing in the lakes history with not just one new lake record set but two! Szymon Wirkus landed a stunning brown trout weighing in at 15lb to set a new brownie record, it was weighed and released by fishery staff. Not to be outdone, local regular Simon Bedwell landed his second double figure rainbow in as many weeks, this time breaking the rainbow trout fishery record with a specimen of 13lb 4oz. This fish was also released after being weighed by fishery staff.

Well done to all those catching doubles this week, too many to mention you all!

Best patterns have been hothead damsels, blue flash damsels, black fritz, Montanas, fry patterns and nymphs.
