The River Swale at Morton was low and crystal clear for this second RiverFest qualifier held on Saturday 27th June 2015, and this, combined with the fact that a lot of fish were still spawning, meant it was a tough match for many of the competitors.

Paul Kozyra became the first man to book a third consecutive appearance in the final with a superb catch of 27 chub up to 5lb in a 93-0-0 total. Paul used stick float tactics with casters and hemp at peg 43 in B zone to finish well clear of the field. 

Second place overall went to Stan Haigh at peg 51 with 30-9-0 of chub on waggler and maggot.  Third was Jamie Houlders at peg 3 with 20-15-0 of chub, a catch that won him A zone and a place in the final.  The other zone winner was Pat Adams who caught late at peg A15 to finish on 13-8-0.
