How's it Fishing- The Trout Lake

 

Fishing Report 29th February 2020

Trout Lake

Last Sunday we had an Angling Trust qualifier on the lake and despite heavy winds and coloured water there still was an average of just under 4 fish per angler landed.

 

Tactics ranged from Black lures on Intermediates to Apps style blood worms under an Indicator. The key is not to fish your flies in too fast.

Weather is due to get windy today with hopefully the last of the rain moving east today.

 

The water is coloured however my advice is to use Black or Black and Green lures such as Zonkers or Black Wholly Buggers on a sinking line, and fish with confidence, the fish are there.

 

Steve Frakes fished yesterday and caught an 8 pound Rainbow on a size 16 buzzer.

 

I am away on an overseas trip from Thursday, so new Bailiff  Alex will be staying at the house and looking after things  with help from Mark and Martyn doing his bit over the weekend.

 

Alex is good fisherman and flytyer so have a chat with him.

 

Let's hope the weather improves going forward, LOL.

 

Tight Lines to you all
