Fishery Report: 15th July to 21st July
Water temperature has risen to a seasonal high of 22C at 6ft and clarity has remained at 2.1m. The week started with bright sun and east wind and ended with a heavy downpour. With the high temperatures the fish remained in the deeper waters i.e. Gateside bay, heronry, road shore (2 to 3 hundred yards out). The rain should cool thing down a bit and bring the fish nearer the surface. Fly’s that are doing well include booby’s, red headed cats, damsel nymphs, Diawl Bach.
