A big improvement in the fishing with trout being caught from all areas of the lake. The water clarity is gradually improving and more fish are now being caught on smaller patterns.
Bank fishing continues to be more productive than boat.
A few fish are rising on calmer days but the majority of anglers are catching 3-5ft down.
Spooned fish have been feeding heavily on black buzzers along with a few immature damsels.
