Mucky Bay / The Pens
Where to fish at Eyebrook
Best methods: When lake olives appear, try a size 12 McCleod's Olive on the dropper with a Pale Watery nymph on the point. Greenwell Glory was an older pattern that worked well in a hatch of Olives, a Yellow tagged Greenwell was deadly.
Best times: Good rainbow and brown trout fishing in most winds. Best in more overcast conditions with a westerly breeze.
Wading: Try to keep out of the water to avoid spooking the fish. Mucky bay is extremely rich in marginal food source such as Shrimp, Hoglouse and Corixa and the fish will often be taking advantage of this food source in less than two foot of water.
