The warm weather over Easter week has helped raise the water temperature and brought on some fly hatches and rising trout.
Good hatches of olives have been reported and the rods that have been out report fish up to the pound mark. Good trout in very good condition at the start of April bodes well for another great season of trout fishing.
The club will be stocking as usual, same size and number of fish as previously but with one big difference, these will be TRIPLOID fish. When they go in (not just yet) they will be marked with a black spot below the gill area.
We really need your help this year, this is the 1st year that we have stocked triploid fish and we need as much information as possible about them. PLEASE keep records and send in good catch returns or report any of these fish caught throughout the season. Good quality information will help us to plan what we will do in the future. More about that later, for the moment flies are hatching and trout are feeding. Enjoy.
