17th Mar 2019 - Fishing Report w/e 17th March 2019

Strong winds have made it a challenge for anglers who braved the weather this week but those who did enjoyed some good sport, with some good bags being recorded. Black Buzzers and Small Nymphs have proved to be very successful throughout this week. The weather conditions look to be improving over the next week, which will hopefully give anglers the opportunity to be fishing higher in the water as the fish become slightly more active with the milder conditions.
