Witton Castle Catch Report - 1st Apr '12

Written by Anne Woodcock. Posted in Catch Reports

Anglers have enjoyed some excellent hatches this week resulting in a two fold increase at the lakes to 158 visiting anlgers. Averaging 3.2 fish per customer.

Current water levels have not been affected during this dry spell, maintaining consistent sport. Black and olive buzzers are catching lots of fish and those who have reached their 15 bag limit have caught on small shuttlecock and f fly imitations.

Anglers fishing drys have also taken advantage of some great top-of-the-water fishing from flourishing hatches of pond olives.

West Lake & Big Lake have fished well. Mr P Bilbrough & Mr A Scott landed rainbows up to 8lb using black buzzer and hares ear respectively (Mr Scott's image attached 8lb rainbow trout).

The top four flies currently are; Black Buzzers, CDC's, Hares Ear and Shuttlecock's.

The tagged fish remains uncaught and the prize total stands at a cool £150.00.
