The high temperature on Saturday certainly slowed sport down over the weekend with less fish rising despite the large quantities of damsels hatching. Although the bank fishing has remained slow this week the boats were soon back on form early this week with Alan Rennocks catching 15 and Steve Loveridge 9 on Monday in single boats. Today, Tuesday, Derek Benamore and boat partner Graham Kempton shared 18 fish using a blue flash damsel with black buzzers on the dropper.
The cooler temperatures this week should see more surface activity. During the morning the fish are concentrating on damsel nymphs but in the afternoon they switch to the adults and can be difficult to tempt. Anglers have had some success using a foam daddy or a dry blue damsel.
