How's it Fishing- The Trout Lake

 

Trout Lake Report Saturday 19th May 2018

 

Lots of fish rising to Buzzers. Fish everywhere but they are challanging to catch.

Use really small F Flies or Black Gnats size 18 or 20 to imitate the naturals, and use ripply water if your flies ae bigger.

Also working is a washing line (ginked up Blob on the point with two nymphs on the middle and top dropper).

I was instructing last week on the lake, and an indicator with buzzer or Apps Blood worm set at 2 1/2 feet worked really well. Lots of 'nips' at the fly but if you waited the trout would come back and the indicator would disappear.

 

Best areas the bottom 1 /2 of he lake near the dam.

 

Boats are producing good bags, of Trout with Brian Simmonds and Ken Sweet get 9 and 13 trout respectively using a floating line using various methods (inc washing line).

 

Stocking some Blues, Tigers and Brook Trout today so feel free to see them going in if your at Press today.
