All anglers braved the cold but dry conditions and caught lots of fish from the eastern side of the reservoir. Sunday dawned a little chillier but still all anglers had success giving us a collective rod average of 10.76 over the 2 days.

Top Spots: The most successful areas have been all along the east side of the reservoir from the Northern end along to Halfmoon bay and Fishtail creek.

Methods & Flies: The most successful patterns were montana, booby, minkie, black and green lures, cats whisker and buzzers. Most anglers have used sinking lines on a fast retrieve.
