13th Jan 2019 - Fishing Report w/e 13th January 2019

A period of varying temperatures has put the fish down a bit this week with lures such as the Apps Bloodworm counting for most fish being caught. However some fish are still showinginterest in dries on milder days with one angler landing 5 on dries and missing just as many. Strong winds during the latter part of the week made fishing conditions even harder, some anglers still managed some bag numbers and some double figured fish.
