Carsington Fishing Report - 05th September 2016

As the daylight hours are shortening the fish seem to be more active.
Water temperatures are still quite warm near the margins so most fishing has taken place over the main basin and deeper areas like fishtail creek and the dam wall.
Two of our regular 'Dappers' Mr Naylor and Mr Houlton has sixteen fish to the boat on Friday using dries, daddies and hoppers.

Rod Average
The rod average for this week was 3.45 with 152 fish caught by 44 anglers.

Best Rainbow/Brown
The heaviest Rainbow was 3lb 4oz caught by Mr P Pearce.
The heaviest Brown was 3lbs 3oz caught by Mr P Harding.

Top Spot
The most popular spots have been around buoys 4 & 5, Dam wall, Fishtail Creek and middle of water.

Methods & Flies
The most successful patterns were Daddies, hoppers, Boobies, Damsel Nymphs, Black Cormorant, pink snake and Montana.
Floating, intermediate and sinking lines have all been used this week.

It's good to be able to feature those great catches on our weekly reports. We have already received some great shots, thanks to those who have emailed in.
