Ogston Res

Today I spent the afternoon at Ogston which is a DCAC stillwater I haven't tried before but its a place many members speak fondly of. First of all on arrival this venue is absolutely beautiful and well worth a trip with the family even without the fishing, an abundance of wildlife in a deep picturesque valley surrounded by pine forest and fields.

I parked on the North Bank car park and had lunch looking out over the water, while I gathered my bearings on fishing spots, car parks and check in stations. A quick look at the water showed the wind coming straight at me had smashed the muddy banks a little, colouring the water this side which would probably make things difficult so throughout the day i fished most other banks.

I managed 6 rainbows and this fine perch below for a bonus all caught on buzzers my preferred method for the day, and what a lovely day it was, hopefully I'll get another crack soon before switching to the rivers.
