There was a smaller than usual turn out for this event with 9-boats (18) anglers competing and returning 13 Trout in excellent angling conditions. Most worryingly on the day was the presence of lots of Roach and Perch which do nothing to enhance the location as a trout fishery. Fishing was very slow on the day with the winning fish hooked and landed at 5.20 pm by very popular winner Shane Stephens, fly pattern a secret, weight of Trout 2-lb 06.2 oz.

Results as follows,
