Ravensthorpe week ending 18 November
Rod average 6.8 (Season 5.3)
The trout fishing at Ravensthorpe is still going well and with a rod average of 6.8 for the week it’s still worth a visit for some fabulous back end sport.
The majority of fish are now being caught on fry patterns such as white minkies, zonkers and cats whisker. A slow sink intermediate or di3 line is proving more effective.
There are still a large number of trout concentrated in front of the lodge by the pontoon and the best way to target them is by boat. Anchoring outside the white buoys and fishing in to this area can produce good results. And this was the method used by James Punch who caught 31 fish, including a fish estimated at 4-5lb which was returned alive. Bob Midmer also had 10 fish to his boat and Alan Wither caught 20.
Alan Duffin is still toughing it out on the bank and catching fish.
Best Rainbow: 4-5lb taken by James Punch
Best boat areas: In front of lodge.
Best bank areas: Monger bank.
Midweek boat winner: Alan Wither.
