Wellsfield Trout Fishery Weekly Report for Week Ending 22/10/06

The fish are lying a bit deeper now unless its bright sunshine and plenty are rising.  An intermediate line for fly fishers and bottom rig for bait anglers proved best. The fishing is very good at the moment at Wellsfield. 

The average fish size was 3lb 3oz, with many fish at the 4lb–5lb mark. One double was caught this week – Mr G Sneddon (Larbert) landed a cracking 12lb 3oz rainbow from the top pond using a Montana Fritz Nymph. Mr Kilpatrick (Edinburgh) caught a fine 7lb 8oz rainbow.

Fritz lures, Dancers and Goldhead Damsels are working well for fly fishers.  For bait anglers Spinners, Meps,  Powerbait and Maggots were most successful.

Some nice catches this week include:

Mercer (Falkirk) 5 for 19lb, best 5lb 12oz, Philpot (Kincardine) 5 for 18lb, best 5lb, Lesser (Bannockburn) 5 for 19lb, best 5lb, Shields (Bonnybridge) 5 for 19lb, best 5lb ,  Lawson (Denny) 5 for 17lb, best 4lb 12oz, Scott (Alloa) 5 for 17lb, best 5lb, Thomson (Dunblane) 5 for 15lb 8oz, best 4lb 4oz,  Clements (Banknock) 5 for 15lb 8oz, Rankin (Airdrie) 4 for 12lb, McCall (Alloa) 3 for 10lb 8oz, Chalmers (Falkirk) 4 for 10lb 4oz, Watson (Strathaven) 3 for 10lb 4oz, Henderson (Fallin) 3 for 10lb 8oz, best 4lb, Sneddon (Falkirk) 3 for 10lb, Neil (Alloa) 3 for 9lb, Lister (Edinburgh) 3 for 8lb, Kennedy (Kilsyth) 2 for 8lb, best 4lb, McGeorge (Glasgow) 2 for 8lb, Robb (Alloa) 2 for 8lb, best 4lb, Bellhouse (Menstrie) 2 for 7lb 8oz, Macauley (Moodiesburn) 2 for 7lb 8oz, best 4lb, Jaad (Glenrothes) 2 for 7lb, Robertson (Stirling) 2 for 7lb, Hardwick (Falkirk) 2 for 7lb, Craig (Glasgow) 2 for 7lb, Kinnon (Falkirk) 2 for 7lb, Burnett (Greengairs) 2 for 7lb, Daly (Livingston) 2 for 6lb 8oz, Mason (Hawick) 2 for 6lb 8oz, Brolly (Alloa) 2 for 6lb 8oz, Baranowski (B.O Allan) 2 for 6lb, Mullen (Cumbernauld) 2 for 6lb, Devine Jnr (Stirling) 2 for 6lb, Collins (Edinburgh) 2 for 6lb, Kay (Denny) 2 for 6lb, Spears (Falkirk) 2 for 6lb, Guild (Airdrie) 1 for 4lb, Wilson (Stirling) 1 for 4lb, Grieve (Bonnybridge) 1 for 4lb, Temporal (Denny) 1 for 3lb 12oz, Kilpatrick (Edinburgh) 7lb 8oz rainbow.
