August-25th – 2019, Week 32
Been very useful this past week, I decided to pull out weeds, and it turned out very productive, with lots of sunshine the weed’s have grown very well this year, and I am so glad that we didn’t use any weed killer, although it is illegal, lots of fisheries use it, however with weeds in the water the washed in soluble nitrogen and phosphates get absorbed by the weeds which is great in preventing green algae, green algae is only found in water that is high in Nitrogen and phosphate, a big problem with algae is that if it is a longish bloom there is a very high risk of a sudden algae crash, which usually takes out all the fish, what I fear now, is that by pulling out these fully grown weeds and they are very easy to pull, am I running a risk of getting green algae, we shall just have to wait and see, its just such a fine balance, the fishing has picked up a lot, today Sunday was very hot and flat calm yet I think everyone caught something, yesterday Saturday, started very slow but by mid morning it had picked up significantly, Rod Thaw had a good few 8 or 9 all on different flies, Grant McGregor had 9 and dropped loads, John Bashford had 2 but lost loads, and that’s how its been all week, beginners on Sunday on our Buddy system had I am pretty sure 2 each, Grant enjoying his fishing just now was back yesterday evening, and caught 14 all on a mixture of dry flies, traditional wets and buzzers amazing evening was his comments, however its not all fun and some of the fish have suffered in the recent hot weather, it I suppose was going to be inevitable that there was going to be some casualties with the water being at nearly 20.5 degrees, in the interest of good husbandry please if any fish are caught that seem to be struggling please just despatch them and leave on the boat jetty where I will pick them up, thank-you. On both Saturday and Sunday we had at least 6 or 7 young Osprey trying to catch fish.
