As enjoyable as the hot summer weather has been recently the rain and lower temperatures last week cooled the water and the fishing has really picked up on all the ponds as a result.
The Burnside has been the top fly pond over the last week with fish much higher in the water and that has made them a lot more catchable.
The clarity has been very good with around five feet of visibility, there has been some big blue trout getting caught that have been fighting incredibly hard with a few people getting caught by surprise and being snapped. Fish have been getting caught on most methods, dries have been very effective when they are right on top but buzzers and nymphs have been really consistent. Small damsels and black lures have been the best lures.
Mr Ellis had two for 7lbs with a blue at 4lbs 14oz. Mr Clark took two for 7lbs 4oz with a blue at 5lbs 7oz. Mr Patterson had five fish for 14lbs 8oz including two 4lb rainbows. Mr Costello, Mr Gaul and Mr Thompson have all returned big blues as well.
The Boathouse is still quite clear with fish visibly cruising around, buzzers and nymphs have been the most consistent method taking fish all day but lures have been good at times when the fish are active but most of the time there not keen at chasing.
Mr Miller had two for 8lbs including a good blue and put back eight. He then came back the next day and had a 4lbs 9oz blue. Mr Watson had a good day returning seven on buzzers and lost a much bigger fish.
The Bankside has still been suffering from a algae bloom but we have been flushing fresh water into the pond and it is improving steadily. Yellow dancers and cats whiskers seem to be the top lure and oaky dokeys the best buzzer. Mr Marshall has been persevering on the pond recently when it hasn’t been fishing great but was rewarded with one of the big fish around 11-13lbs on a yellow head okay doakey as well as another handful of smaller ones. Mr Clark had a great day taking four fish for 9lbs and returned another 15 mostly on yellow dancers.
The Woodside has been very clear and this has seen the weed worse than we have ever seen before on this pond but we have been in with the weed cutter and at the moment around one third of the pond inset fishable with patches of weed around elsewhere.
This really hasn’t affected the fishing with the fish staying in the clear water and there have been really good bags of fish caught. Over the weekend there were 97 fish caught for a total weight of 173lbs by 57 anglers. There wasn’t a stand out method taking fish, the float, lead and spinners were all working with powerbait as usual being very effective. The biggest fish of the week was taken by Mr McLauchlan weighing 3lbs 8oz on a worm.
Small flies fished deep have been working well at Carlogie Dam during the day, bright sun and warm water are keeping the fish down in the water.
Buzzers and CDCs are working well later in the day.
