The heatwave continues, I have just been out on a boat measuring the water temperature across the Great Lough and it averages 20 degrees c. The fish are not in a mood for feeding and the bright sunlight is keeping them down in the water.
Considering the conditions some very good catches have been made. Dave Moody and Jim Foreman brought 8 rainbows to the boat on Monday and after a very early start Eric Caisley managed to return 10 rainbows, also fishing from a boat on the Great Lough.
Conditions are still best first thing in the morning.
