Last week fished ok with a rod average of 3.4. With the high temperatures forecast this week the fishing is sure to be harder.
The water is 21C today, Tuesday, so please take extra care if releasing fish.
Mornings tend to be best now with the evening rise not always happening if the surface layers are too warm.
The massive damsel hatch continues which at least keeps some fish on the surface on even the brightest days.
Sunday November 11th is the date of the Fur & Feather competition. Boat and bank anglers are welcome to enter.
