Please note that we are in the process of upgrading facilities for our customers.
Next weekend should see the finish of works carried out and the opening of the fishermans ytea room, with full tea and coffee making facilities, running drinking water etc, and somewhere to have a well earned rest and a natter if the rain comes in.
Since the thaw, the lake has been fishing exceptionally well.
As always at this time of year, the trout are extremely active in all layers and are feeding aggressively.
Many anglers are catching their limits and are having great fun with the hard fighting rainbows!
Patterns such as Cats Whiskers and Apse Bloodworm are taking the lions share of the fish, but a couple have now been caught on dries also.
I am glad to report that the lake is now pretty much fully defrosted!
Brave anglers Mac Lowe and Colin Stuart braved the icy conditions yesterday, catching two and four fish respectively in a short space of time.
Well done guys.
While on ice smashing duties this afternoon, a group of trout were turning and flashing in the disturbed water right underneath my feet!
Finding it hard to resist, I snuck out this little beauty on an apse bloodworm fished right under the tip!
It just goes to show just how close the trout come in and how they feed.
Before going to get a rod, I was watching two Tigers physically digging at the bottom of the lake, clouding the water up, feeding aggresively.
Unfortunately, due to the extreme cold temperatures, we are fully iced over.
I will update on here when we become fishable again.
