      Best areas
      Fish continue to be caught from all around the lake, biggest numbers from dam end.

      Best Patterns
      damsel, damsel booby, black or olive buzzer, red or black cruncher, olive cdc, black hopper, wet daddies.

      There was plenty of cloud cover last week and on many days the bank fished as well as the boats with some fine specimens landed.
      Fish are feeding on the surface at every opportunity on emerging black or olive buzzers, hawthorn fly and the first of the mayfly.
      Water clarity is good now and at a temperature of 15.2C conditions are perfect for imitative methods. Dry fly is working well during the day when light winds and on most evenings.

      Scierra Pairs Heat Sunday May 16th 9.45am – 5.00pm
