Some good catches despite tricky conditions.

A tricky week at Ravensthorpe this week. The trout seem to be pre-occupied with the large numbers of damsel nymphs coming in to hatch. Floating or slow intermediate lines with damsels are catching a few fish but the top method above all others is the washing line, tequila fab on the point with black quill buzzers on the droppers.

Mr Foster and his boat partner fishing the washing line and had 16 fish to the boat. The Spencer brothers also did well on the washing line taking 14 fish to their boat. Alan Duffin opted to fish the bank again with the washing line method and landed seven fish.

Ravensthorpe is hosting its popular Thursday Evening Boat Club from 6-9pm
