Both boat and bank anglers are enjoying good sport at Ravensthorpe. The best fish of the week was a 7lb 8oz Rainbow taken by B McIntosh. Roger McCann took a lovely 6lb Rainbow whilst twitching a couple of damsel patterns through the Boils. Roger had a double hook up and landed the 6lb specimen and got broken off by the other fish which was bigger.

Masses of fish are showing everywhere to the boats, although it is not easy to work out what the fish are actually taking. Good results are coming to bloodworm patterns, non weighted are working well when fished in the top three feet of water. Buzzers, diawl bachs, flashback ptn’s on droppers on a floating line. The best boat areas are the top end and north bank down to the island.
