    Rod average: 1.7
    Best fish:  Mr Ivor Gay - 4lbs

    The fishing has started to drop off a little due to the increase in the water temperature at 20 degrees. The boats are catching the best at the moment - fishing over the distrait line using floating lines with either Cats Whisker or Green Montana’s, letting the flies sink and the bubbles work the flies have produced the most fish.
