The very strong and cold SW wind reduced bank fishing to the Point and Woodside boats could only fish up the tree line. The prospects for Tuesday are a lot better with a light NNE wind moving around to SSE by tea time making it feel a lot warmer. The whole lake will be fishable and I would expect a lot of fish feeding in or on the surface.

Only 7 fish were caught by 10 anglers and most of them were caught on the last 4 hour permit.
