(Last updated: Monday 27th March)

Looking ahead to next week the water levels are starting to steady off and should slowly settle and drop in as the week progresses. Looking at what flies and lures for the coming week, water temperatures are starting to rise to a level where dressed flies in sizes 6 or 8, tubes around the inch size should be about right. Blacko's Dee Special, Ghillie, Underghillie & Girnal Shrimp should bring success, while on the spinning front the 13cm Blue Rapala, Tobies in 18gm – 28gm and with the water temperature getting up a bit now the flying c should bring some success. As always come prepared and always listen to the advice of your boatman or ghillie.
