Ravensthorpe has been in fantastic form this week.

Fish 285 (season 9,441) Returns 52 (1,743) Rod average 5.4 (5.4)

The fishing this week has been fantastic. The cooler weather has helped and dries are catching very well. A stocking mid week has induced the fish to feed well.

Some exceptional catches to note include Messrs Naylor and Houlton who had 33 fish to their boat. The largest Rainbow was 5lb 4oz and a lovely Brown of 4lb 12oz which was returned. Peter Wingrove had an afternoon boat and took 6 Rainbows and two Browns, the largest was around 6½lb. Mike Osgood had 11 fish off the Dam.

Hoppers, Daddies and crunchers are all working well. Intermediate lines with cormorants, crunchers.
