Fishing has improved since Monday 21st with a rod ave of 2.6 for the week. 

Boat anglers had reasonable catches whatever the weather although bank anglers struggled on bright, hot days.

The top of the wind where the water is clearer continues to be best. 

A good sprinkling of full tailed 3lb+ fish are showing. 

There are still a few damsels hatching. Otherwise fish have been feeding on corixa, daphnia and medium sized black buzzers.

Cooler temperatures will improve catches further.
