Please remember Park lake and upper beat is closed this Saturday 26th June for a wedding. The river beats are still open but please park near the shoot hut next to Laundry cottage. The catch return and beat booking form will be in the shoot hut.
A much cooler week or so has seen fishing improve and with plenty of water still coming through the lake things are looking pretty good for the time of year. We may be starting the first weed cut next week but will keep you updated.
Withith more challenging conditions think about scaling down your approach with smaller flies and lighter tippets. Early mornings or late evenings will be the best. Please remember Park lake will be closed 26th June but the river apart from upper beat will still be available to fish. The beat booking form and catch return will be located in the shoot hut next to Laundry cottage on this day.
Lake conditions are really good with very good water clarity. The fish are well spread and responding to a range of tactics from fishing lures to dry fly.
Finally the river has had a bit of water to freshen it up slightly. Things are certainly starting to wake up on the river with more fly life about and hopefully in the next week or so we should be in the thick of the Mayfly period. The river has been stocked with 550 brown trout so far this season.
On the lake, fish have been rising freely throughout the day and responded well to a carefully presented dry fly. The fish have been feeding heavily on buzzers too, with an olive or black one working best. Damsel patterns have also accounted for good numbers of fish.
The river looks in fine fettle, if a bit on the low side. However the water clarity is very good as the start of the season usually is met with some colour in the water. The opening weeks of the river season will see very little surface action so target the deeper pools and runs with small weighted nymphs. PTNs, Hares ear and small olive nymph patterns will score well.
