      Boat – most areas producing fish

      Best Patterns
      wet or dry daddy, black hopper, red cruncher, small black shipmans, hares ear, black/green lure, candy booby, white/black snake.

      Another wet week with many anglers only fishing a few hours. Luckily there has been no further flooding and the water although at a high level is clearing quickly.
      A rod average of 2.4 is not as good as I expect in October but it’s pleasing that fish are being caught from most areas of the lake.
      Despite the rain there are only a few daddies on the water but anglers continue to catch on wet and dry imitations.
