Autumn has definitely arrived with colder temperatures and a full reservoir. The conditions and water level have settled down and the fishing improved towards the end of this week with a rod average of over 4 on Sunday. The fish are tight in and on the move so stay mobile and don’t be afraid to cast parallel to the bank. When the conditions are calmer fish are moving confidently in the surface and are being picked off by anglers fishing foam daddies and other dries.
We are hoping for more settled conditions and the continuation of the improvement in sport over the next week.
