Catches from the top are getting rarer as things cool down but mid-week saw some better conditions and anglers managed to tempt fish with dries. The favoured patterns for most of the time, however have been damsel nymphs and cat’s whiskers.
The forecast for this week suggests that we may get some relief from the cold easterly winds which have been a feature of this week and that conditions may improve.
Number of fish brought to the net: 68 rainbow and 1 brown trout
Number of fish returned to the water: 46
Number of visiting anglers: 40
Successful fly patterns: Dial Bach, Brown Gnat, Black Dries, Gold Fritz, Cat’s Whisker, Orange Fritz, Hothead Damsel, Blue Flash Damsel, Green Nomad, Viva.
