The water is getting warmer, currently about 20 degrees so catching fish is getting harder. More importantly, however, more care needs to be taken when handling fish that are already highly stressed. Try not to handle fish out of the water, play them for too long or touch them with dry hands. So far all anglers have acted responsibly and fish casualties have been kept to a minimum.
