Fish averages pushing 5lb.......
With all the bigger fish now being stocked it's pushing the fish average up to a bag splitting 5lb, lots of fish up and around the 5lb being caught and returned with blue's to 7lb and brown's around the 9lb mark. Fishing over the Bank Holiday weekend as been excellent with 780 fish caught over the 4 days, with the biggest winning fish of the week caught by Mr Sean Porter from Southport a cracking 18lb 8oz (returned) on a cats whisker pattern fished from a floating line. Other notable catches have come from Mr Will Baumont from Oldham with a stunning 9lb brown and Mr Colin Morris from Eccles with a rainbow at 15lb 3oz caught on a floating fry. More blues going in this week up to 6lb to try and get a good head of them in as resident fish to keep the sport exciting. It's the Trout Master fish off next Saturday but don't worry the fishery is open usual for day tickets as not many are attending.......plenty of fish ready for the event though.
