Wood Lodge Pool is now open and is fishing extremely well. Powdermills is drained and will reopen mid October.
Autumn is a great time to fish with day and night time temperatures dropping, which has helped encourage some good fishing, with 128 fish taken to the week ending 15th October.
Floating lines are still all that is needed with leaders between 9ft and 12ft long. With the cooler water temperatures the fish are becoming very aggressive and this is when small lures like the BFD, Hot Head Damsels, Humungus’s and Cats Whisker will be effective fished a couple of feet under the surface with a quick retrieve. If this does not work buzzers and diawl bach’s will work.
Best bags last week -4 fish for Doug Barnes, Terry Cooling and P.Marshall.
Below, another good rainbow of 7lb taken by Donald Garner last week on Shipmans Buzzer from Vale End.
