Hot and bright conditions haven't made it easy this week, however those anglers which continuously adapted to the conditions have been rewarded some some excellent sport. As the temperatures increased up to 24c this week, anglers resorted to using Nymphs and Lures on intermediate or sinking lines, which intern produced some good numbers. We have seen some double figured fish landed this week, along with some cracking Tiger Trout. While the fish have been feeding higher in the water column, anglers have found Buzzers fished using various methods have been most productive.
