Mark Roberts with his 25lb carp at Nar Valley Fisheries.

The new season opened at Nar Valley Fisheries on June 1 with the first 24 hours producing a few early fish.

The best fish from Lake Geneva was a 30lb mirror carp, followed by a superb 25lb common carp caught by Mark Roberts.

A number of doubles and a few bream and tench were banked before the strong northerly winds and torrential rain quietened sport on Wednesday and Thursday.

Fenn Lake also got off to a flying start in the first 24 hours with a number of mid-double figure carp topped by a 25lb common.

Mid-double figure carp were the main quarry in Willow Pool.

A few permits are still available in the tackle shops.

  •  Despite the weather and northerly wind being less than favourable, it was still a decent week at Blackdyke Trout Fishery.

Catch of the week was by Martin Smith, who caught a 9lb rainbow on a snake, which he has entered into Troutmasters.

He had other success with dries.

Mark Neilson did well on an intermediate line, catching 11 on a blob.

There are small blacks on top with hoppers and dry flies about. Damsels are starting to hatch.

A restock was due yesterday.
