Wild brown trout from Lake Leake

With water levels at Lake Leake having risen around a foot over the last week or so, there’s plenty of colour in the water, and the temperature is currently around 9 deg C.

This well conditioned wild brown trout of just over 1 kg, caught on a Robin wet fly, had been feeding on snails, scud, stick caddis, corixa (water boatmen), and even adult chironomid (midge), and we look forward to more of this for dry fly fishing.
