Fishery Report: 10th June to 16th June 2003
Current water temperature has risen 2 degrees and is now 19C at a depth of 6ft, secchi disk clarity is excellent at 3.5m. The hot weather is likely to mean the fish are beginning to congregate over the usual deeps (Heronry/Arnmach Deeps/ Roadshore Deeps/ Gateside Bay/ Inchmahome North and the Rookery. However the clarity of the water means that deeper lying fish can still see activity at the surface and thus all tactics are proving to be worth a try - depending on conditions. Recent best bags have been a high D and booby at Gateside and dries “out in the middle”.
