Fish 379 (Season 5,212) Returns 53 (612) rod average 7.1 (8.5)

Ravensthorpe continues to fish well this week despite some chilly conditions with a rod average of 7.1 fish.

With changeable weather the water has fished well on top tactics with fish caught in the top three feet on washing line with diawl bachs, buzzers and crunchers. Dry fly has also been successful at times with some significant pond olive hatching.

John Smith and Mick Griffin had a great day’s fishing on Tuesday with John bringing over 20 fish to the boat on a wide variety of patterns from daddies, diawl bachs, buzzers and Pitsford Pea.

Lots of fish are being caught within the 3 to 5lb bracket and are fighting well in the cool water. Over the weekend fish were still actively feeding on, or just sub surface, with the Domes, Coton End and the Island producing.

Bank fishing has been best down the west bank on buzzers and diawl bachs up in the water on a washing line set up.
