Stocks Fishing Report: week ending Sunday 25th
Stocks has come into good form with the increase in water level, we have had a mixed week of weather with strong winds giving way to bright calm conditions this weekend. Fish have been caught consistently over the newly flooded ground in the northern shallows with chucking lures and dries tight in proving to be a killer tactic.
Rod Average: 3.7
Top rod: Robert Clelland with 12 fish
Robert Clelland had two days on the boats and took top rod with 12 mostly on dries this Friday, small midge patterns and foam daddies taking the lions share. He then went out for a half day on Saturday and netted 4 bows, a good score in the bright conditions that faced us, Dawson’s olive taking the fish.
