Fishing

Early in the season, or any time after rain, when the river is coloured, nymph fishing is important to make the most of your day. From November through to the end of the season you can expect the fish to come up and eat dry flies. You will likely see trickles of mayfly throughout the day, and caddis hatching on still days and in the evenings. Through the heat of summer, grasshoppers will be around and they will be falling on the water so be prepared to fish some bigger dries or hopper patterns.
