fished it today, landed 7 lost 4, all with a red buzzer under a dry fly.About ten people fishing, most of them struggled to catch.Water is starting to clear but the muck on the banks will be washed into the lake after a drop of rain.Can't fault the size and condition of the fish - crackers!

Fished here a week ago for a few hours.
It fished hard to say the least, I get the impression that since reopening on the 1st so many fish have been caught and returned the fish that are in the lake are no easy to catch, combined with the lack of space for peace with 6/7 anglers presure the lake feels empty.
I'm sure if a fresh introduction of fish was done regular this would provide better sport also stirring up the existing stock.

Had a few hours here today. Took a while to get a pattern they would take. Size 14 gold head bloodworm.

Had one fish but bangs every cast. Nightmare trying to hook up these fish as were so touchy it was unbelievable. I guess that's what c and r does to them.

I went there for a few hours last Sunday,caught one,lost two.
The fishings hard there,10 people fishing,3 fish caught.
There's basically 250 fish swimming around in there scared to take a fly because they've been caught & released.
On the up side the water clarity is a lot better despite all the rain.
