Cooler conditions prevailed and good falls of rain created the perfect fishing haven. Guests who visited during this period were pleasantly surprised.

There was an abundance of insect activity with prolific midge hatches. Trout averaging 1.5 kg were caught mainly on Woolly Buggers (any colour), Dragon Fly (late summer), midge and emerging nymphs.

The Fly featured for Spring is the "Woolly Bugger". The woolly bugger is suggestive of a wide variety of food such as green damsel fly nymphs and small fish.
