Today was bright with little or no wind it was flat calm for a lot of the day and wasn’t very warm at only 6 to 7c. We had fish rising all day over the whole lake, this made it frustrating for anglers as they struggled to catch them. Fishing just under the surface or with nymphs in the top 1ft had the best results.
