    The rod average rose to 4.4 last week with a combination of cooler and much clearer water switching the fish on the feed.
    On cloudy days anglers are having good sport pulling flies through the surface like muddlers, daddies and blobs.
    Dries doing well in calmer conditions.
    Fish are well spread around the lake with most areas producing, especially the lodge end now.
    Plenty of resident 3lb + fish are being caught. 22 fish over 4lb last week.
    Hopefully there will be some crane flies on the water soon to keep the fish on the top.

    Next Stocking
