23rd November - Weekly Report.
It was a very mixed bag a Lakedown this week which saw a luke warm catch rate of just under 50%. Some days still fished very well but on others the lakes were very quiet. A number of larger fish continued to be caught though, with a 6.8lb brown coming out of lake 4 and a number of 6-7lb rainbows landed from lakes 3 & 4 . With the past week having been relative dry the lakes have had a chance to clear and all are now fishable (although lake 1 is still a bit muddied). Most catches have been using slow retrieves on Montanas, Damsels, and crunchers from 4-15ft down.
15th November - Weekly Report.
Lakedowns bigger fish came to life this week with a number of brownies caught, .including two from lake 4 weighing 5..8lb and 6lb and another from lake 2 tipping the scales over 7.8lbs. Saturday also saw Lake 3 produce a couple of 6.8lb rainbows but the heaviest catch came from lake 1 at 8lbs.
The catch rate ended at a healthy 70% with cats, damsels and Montanas doing best. Green and black/white seem to be the colours of choice.
After the weekends downpour lakes 1 and 2 have muddied up considerably, however lakes 3&4 are still fishable. A few days without heavy rain should allow all to clear.
9th November - Weekly Report.
The cold mornings this week made for beautiful scenes and great fishing. All the lakes are now quite clear and fishing well, although through the week Lake 4 did best. Even with a few blanks in the mix the catch rate easily exceeded 80% with fish rising to the surface again early on. Montanas and damsels have worked best, both landing rainbows over 4lbs.
2nd November - Weekly Report.
Bad weather dominated this week which challenged any angler. Despite that the catch rate ended up just over 70% and the catch of the week being a stunning 7lb rainbow from lake 3. Lakes 3 and 4 are performing best with anglers catching at all depths on flies from buzzers to bibios.
Thanks to all who turned out for the halloween comp and Well done to James and Micky for taking home the prizes. (3.12lb biggest fish, 7.8lbs bag)
26th October - Weekly Report.
