At last the cooler conditions have arrived with our surface temperature these last two mornings at a fish friendly 18.5degrees resulting in a dramatic upturn in the fishing with yesterdays rod average at a much improved 3 fish per rod.

Russ Martin fished the morning session fishing along the weed beds of the Thornton arm to land 4 fish all on dries, other rods fished the Markfield arm and along the stones with trout now been taken from all these areas.

Fish these last two evenings have been seen feeding off the surface to hatches of buzzer & caenis.

Water clarity is good & with the continued cooler weather sport should continue to improve.

Our other venues Draycote & Foremark are also seeing a marked improvement in catches.
