Our 2017 competition was the first time that we can recall where the Weather Gods were not too friendly. It was somewhat wet and windy. The wind blowing along the Reservoir towards the West Dam. Twelve members took part, Les Walker officiated and one late arrival lent support towards the end.

14 fish in total were caught of which 8 were released. 6 fish were submitted to the weigh in. The winner for 2017 was Mike Fennell with a trout of 2lb 1oz.
