Fly fishing from the West Side of Burrator
A rainy Sunday with strong southerly wind but decided to try the west bank after speaking to Alan one of the bailifs. He had recenetly fished there and caught a nice sized Brown along with a few Rainbows. Never had any luck that side before but it would be worth trying as now stocking from that side.
Normally fish the Peninsula but with all the chaos from the logging going on it made sense to give it a try. Very little thought appears to be given to the fly fishing along the Peninsula as the middle section is almost completely flattened and trees are still remaining along the waters edge with no extra bays created to allow for a backcast.
After a two hour session on the western side caught three hard fighting fish on an intermediate line and went home happy.
