hi guys i went to kennick yesterday with my brother and dad, first time we been here. Set of from truro at 615 96 miles later arrived at kennick at 755am. the reservior is stunning very scienic with big rodeddendrums bushes when side and big fir trees with lovely lawns otherside. Went to the permit hut purchased day ticket 25 for 6 fish. My dad and brother took the boat out. We browsed the weeks fish reports not good lots of blanks odd guy with few fish. sounded like it will be a hard day. Set my fly rod up with floater put on goldhead apps first of fished little bay near dam 2nd cast had a pull but no hook up. after ten mins changed to dawil bach moved up along banks but still no joy. bumped in to a local who was booby fishing he had a couple but told me daytime pretty poor here at moment that knocked my confidence abit.
of i went to a point near clampit bay i put on a dropper buzzer with jungle cheek dawil. Fishing it slowly still nothing so i poured out coffee casted out thought let fly drift round put rod down picked cup up took zip and my line was flying of reel rod going over waters egde grabbed it fish on. Fish went mad great scrap fish just over 2ib i was smiling. another hour went buy with odd pluck then time to meet dad bro for dinner so they picked me up in boat we headed back to lodge.
Cooked up home made venison burgers ( we shot the deer few weeks ago) with nice glass red wine.
after that we headed back out i fished around boat bank few locals there odd fish i made my way down through the bank stunning area but no fish hardly a rise, got my dad to pick me up drop me back to clampit this is where my dad started. Put on a blue flash damsel with fast inter 3rd cast i stripped it through fast bang fish on jumped straight water another good scrap this fish was 2-9 nice tail on it.
now i was smiling 2 fish. then 3 casts later another fish on the bank next 45mins i had few more fish and lost a couple all on damsel stripped fast on fast intermediate. My dad came over in boat they mamaged couple lost some once told them what to use where to fish
all in all good day nice fishery shame not lot being caught or rising you would think it was no fish in there. By reports and no rises.
i would defintley go back there. On way home stopped in to jamica inn for pint of cornish rattler
has anyone fished trenchford lake next door pike fishery only thought about fly fishing there but didnt look like lot bank space.

Never mind the trout, just look at those burgers Shock Shock Shock

Good result and good effort moving about a bit and finding fish.
