Dries & especially the daddy have taken a number of fish in the evening.
Tony Broadway fished with dries from the bank to take his 7 trout
Roy Hubbard & Dave Roper fished the rudder between C & D buoy catching 17 trout on snakes & minkies, Mr Severn fished the rudder taking 8 fish for a total weight 25lb14oz, with Lee Henfrey continuing his run of success on the rudder catching his limit of 8 fish.
During the early part of the week the boils, rainbow corner, inlet fished during the day with Lin Croft the place to be in the evening. Towards the end of the week Toft shallows started to produce again with Kevin Richardson recording a catch of14 trout.

In order to maintain the accuracy of our records could all anglers please ensure that they fill in the catch return sheet before departure. If not in the lodge it will be found on the counter in the gutting room next door.
Bank Anglers car passes should be, where possible, booked prior to coming fishing as we only have a limited number available.
Boat anglers are also politely reminded of the ruling that there is no anchoring within 100 yards of any pontoon or aerators. This is especially relevant to the harbour pontoon as its own mooring chains & anchors extend out a considerable distance from the end of the harbour & are easily fouled.
