SW LAKES WEEKLY TROUT FISHERY ROUND UP Week ending 16th June 2019

Rainbow and Brown waters

There was some really good fishing last week but Siblyback was the stand out water again with a rod average of 5 fish per person having been 4.75 the previous week! Fantastic action with coch-y-bondhu beetles being blown onto the water and fantastic fighting fish.

Kennick was really consistent again with rod average over 3. The best fish was nearly five and half pounds last week. The coch-y-bondhu hatch was great with some really good surface action. Mike Herring catching 8 fish and rising another 20 to his dry black hopper fished by boat.

Browns only

Roadford was in good form too with a rod average of 4 fish per person with Dean Boucher catching 26 fish in two sessions! Amazing fishing! Fernowrthy browns were on the coch-y-bondhu beetles gladly taking surface flies.
