A mixture of tactics to match the changeable conditions is proving worthwhile, with sinking and floating lines both being successful. Buzzers, Hoppers, Daiwl Bach and PTN are tempting fish in the upper layers, whilst Damsel, Cormorant and Booby are proving their worth in the deeper water. The Reservoir is fishing well all over, both from bank and boat.
