Fishing Report and News 28/2/22 – 6/3/22

52 anglers caught a total of 237 fish giving an overall rod average of 4.55.

The boats offered the most consistent sport again over the last week, the bank can at times appear to be fabulous one day and the harder the next – some anglers have definitely got the methods sussed where as others are perhaps a little behind. Anglers taking to the boats are urged to fish deeper with Di-5 or Di-7 lines and either black or olive bead head type lures or booby patterns, deep and slow is the key paying particular attention to the ‘hang, at the end of the retrieve. Anglers fishing from the bank are fishing in much shallower water and a floating line and washing line tactics are serving pretty well – I managed a short session on Thursday myself and netted 7 fish with 5 of them coming again on the hang, a tequila fab on the point seemed to be a good choice.

We’ve been adding several new products into the shop at Toft including Airflo’s new Ridge 2.0 Universal Taper floating line – it really is fantastic! If you’re coming to visit we’re sure to have a fair bit of what you may need.

We’ve added another stocking of fish yesterday (7/3/2022) – this time 350 rainbows from Northern Trout with an average size of 1kg. Or next stocking is due next Tuesday 15/3/2022 from Olsten Trout.

As always day tickets can be purchased either in the lodge on arrival or by booking online by clicking the booking button.

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!
