RAVENSTHORPE Reservoir was the first of Anglian Water’s ‘big four’ waters to open for fishing.
Opening day saw 42 bank and boat anglers shrugging off the strong winds and rain showers with most anglers catching fish.
Terry Vials landed the biggest fish of the weekend from Catwalk Corner – a superb 11lb 7oz rainbow.
Terry was continuing the tradition of big opening day fish.
Last year on opening day Mick Griffin took a whopping 12lb 6oz rainbow.
Mick was again among the fish this year – he and Graham Smith took 15 fish to their boat.
While water levels remain low at Ravensthorpe bank anglers are restricted to fishing from the dam, despite this most caught well.
