Brenig Report 17/9/17

Written by on . 0 Comments

  A wet and sometimes rather windy week was experienced at Llyn Brenig with one or two clearer spells occurring. The wind has shifted to the North at times and has brought with it some rather cooler air. In other words it has been pouring down with rain and I think that we have seen the end of the summer.


 On a positive note the fishing has been very good this week with the rod average going up from last week to 4.2 fish per angler with very few fishermen going home empty handed. The conditions for fishing have been pretty ideal with plenty of cloud cover, a good ripple on the lake and the water temperature at a perfect fourteen degrees C. With fish seen all over the lake and riding quite high in the water and with plenty of fly life around what could possibly go wrong?!


  We have recently suspected that there has been some clandestine activity occurring at night around the jetty. In order to solve the mystery a hidden camera was set up near to the jetty. The suspect was indeed caught on camera and turned out to be an Otter which is fantastic news. In reality credit must be given to our site manager Mr. Nick Kite who was alerted to its presence by its spraint near to the jetty and then set up the camera in order to verify his suspicions. The spraint of the Otter apparently smells like jasmine so I am thinking of starting up a side line in the production of Fisherman’s after shave.


  With the rod average on the rise and the lake fishing really well it is not surprising that we have seen a number of excellent catches over the last week. The biggest fish that has been caught was a 4lb 9oz Rainbow which was recorded by Ron Mitchell from Ash Magna near Whitchurch. The top bag for this week was 17lbs 3oz and was recorded by Mr. Tony Nicholls. Other notable bags were Mr. Rhodri Wynne from Henllan who recorded a bag of 14lbs 9oz for six fish caught and Mr. John Eaves whose bag weighed in at 13lbs 8oz. Mr. Roberts obviously had a good day as he wrote simply, ‘Brilliant’ whereas Mr. Tom Sinton took a more pragmatic approach by writing, ‘Being here is definitely better than painting the house’. I’m with you on that one. The fish are still fighting well and are like pocket battleships as Mr. Russ Naylor found out after landing a 2lb 1oz Rainbow which, he said, had fought as if it was 5lbs.


  We are looking forward to the Brenig Monster Mash which will be taking place this Saturday when ten pre booked boats will be aiming to catch the big fish that are hopefully lurking around the fish cages. It is with eager anticipation that we await the outcome of the day and hope that there will be some big catches recorded. If not it is still better than decorating the house!


  There have been fish caught this week in almost every part of the lake with Nant Glyn shore, the Ring of Stones, The Brenig Arm , Sailing Club Bay and Watersports Bay all yielding fish for both bank and boat fishermen. Tower Bay and the Visitors Centre have also fished well.


  The top flies have been Daddy long Legs, coral dabblers, cormorant, damsel, zulu, viva, nomad, sedge, buzzers and various blobs and boobies. A successful method has been a floating line with a sink tip.


  We would all like to send our best wishes to one of Llyn Brenigs regular fishermen Mr. Terry Evans from Denbigh who has under gone a series of major operations. We wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him fishing back on the lake soon.


The main gates will be shutting at 6.45pm this week and all boats need to be back on the jetty by 6.00pm.
