Eleven fish over 5lb last week with many more seen taking damsels off the surface.
End of June last year the water temperature had hit 23C. This week the water is hovering around 18C which has kept the fish feeding most of the day and spread over most of the lake.
Bank fishing is still ok with anglers doing well on hoppers, foam daddy and small damsel nymphs.
Boat anglers are also catching on dries as well as washing line with diawl bach or cruncher on the dropper. There are some fish getting caught by fishing deeper down the middle on white/green lures or a team of epoxy buzzers.
