Fishing Report and News 21/2/22 – 27/2/22

41 rods caught 108 trout for a rod average of 2.63. Its fair to say that its been still a tad on the breezy side following on from the storms of the week previous and I’m pretty sure that if more boats has been able to go out then we would have seen a lot more fish c aught – those that accessed the deeper water certainly faired better.

Fishing during the cooler months of the year needs to be enjoyable, by being prepared for your day you’ll have a better experience. A few simple pointers can help you make the most of your day:

  1. Dress appropriately – if you get cold you’ll never fish very well.
  2. Take a hot drink to help keep you warmed up – it’s good for morale!
  3. Go equipped – take a range of lines to cover different fish holding depths.
  4. always ask in the lodge for the latest info on tactics and areas.
  5. Keep swapping areas and tactics until you find success.

Certainly anglers had to keep ringing the changes over the last week to stay in touch with the fish, those that did best used darker/duller flies with less bright colours than we sometimes see. Either fast intermediate lines with lures such as Olive bead head fritz or Black/Green taddies seemed good as did faster sinking lines with booby patterns in similar colours.

We’ve added another stocking of 300 rainbows this morning 28/2/2022 and the video shows just a few of them making their way down the slide and into Toft.

As always day tickets can either be purchased online in advance or by visiting the tackle shop onsite.

See you soon folks

Fishing Report and News 9/5/22 – 15/5/22

Some heavy rain in the middle of last week kept a few anglers away dashing our hopes of an attendance similar to the previous week – that said we still enjoyed a decent steady turnout, we just love you to take full advantage whilst the fishing is so good…………………….


Fishing Report and News 2/5/22 – 8/5/22

The last week made it in to our top 3 attendances of the season as anglers took advantage of the recent great fishing weather and enjoyed Toft during ‘primetime’.

In keeping with the general trend recently, imitative tactics reigned supreme again with a mixture of nymph and dry fly tactics accounting for probably 90% of the fish caught. Favourite patterns included both olive and black buzzers, crunchers, diawl bach, hares ear, shipmans, shuttlecocks and daddies. Its been great to see that our fish are really piling the weight on with the masses of natural food available, many anglers have reported catching several fine quality fish in the……….

98 rods caught 739 trout for a rod average of 7.54

A real bumper week again!

As we slip into May the season is well and truly in full swing and the fish obliging on the whole to the imitative approach employed by most of the anglers. Those that have fared best seemed to be the ones that could spot when to change depths, during brighter spells dropping deeper seemed to be a decent way to keep catching a few fish……..


Fishing Report and News 18/4/22 – 24/4/22

123 Anglers caught 360 fish for a rod average of 2.92

A week started with some promise and good settled weather soon turned abit less consistent and tested the resolve of anglers to the limit. A stiff north easterly breeze and bright sunshine for the second half of the week did little to maintain last weeks incredible rod average and those that fished from boat whilst slightly less comfortable probably enjoyed the better sport……………. 


Fishing Report and News 11/4/22 – 17/4/22

116 anglers caught 794 trout for a rod average of 6.84

Toft keeps giving at the moment and our excellent stock of fish have proved to be very cooperative indeed. At the risk of sounding like a broken record nothing much has changed in the way of tactics – it’s the time of year to generally adopt an imitative type of approach……………………………


Fishing Report and News 4/4/22-10/4/22

75 anglers caught 493 trout (67 killed) for a rod average of 6.57

Windy weather made for a slightly quieter week than we would have liked, the fishing however remained fabulous as Tofts trout gorged on the massive profusion of buzzers throughout the levels of the water column. Both black and olive buzzer imitations played a big part in catches and as lots of quality trout made their way to the landing nets of our anglers.

We spooned several fish this week to help us to ‘match the hatch’ and you can see from the pictures that they were certainly feeding very well indeed – the majority of the sport has been with floating lines and imitative types of flies – the real ‘cream’ of the seasons fishing – its literally buzzer soup out there!
