With plenty of rain having fallen and high daytime temperatures, the lake is looking fantastic.
The water levels are high and the water temperatures still fairly low, which is great news for the trout.
I have left the grass and surroundings to grow a little this season to encourage the natural life to flourish, particuarly on the far bank. I have cut in a path all of the way round to make access easy.
I have also been strategically planting a large variety of new trees to help harbour increased fly life.
The last few days have seen some great hatches late evening, with trout seemingly striking all over the lake.
The tiger trout have been moving well with plenty caught this week, including four in a morning to David Woods, well done David.
There are only a few weeks left of the season now, and its prime time for some exciting dry fly fishing.
The last week or so of unsettled weather has seen fewer anglers on the bank, but those who have braved the weaather have managed to get amongst the fish.
Being at the lake early morning and late evening, there have been a LOT of fish moving, definately the times to be there to get amongst them.
The trout are definately spending a lot more time in the upper layers, so its most likely time to put away the sinking lines and lures, and try the buzzers and emerging patterns instead.
As stated earlier in my posts, evening tickets are now available for just £15.
