Week Commencing: Sat 08/07/2017
The weather this week on the Road Lake has been a real mixed bag with temperature’s up in the high twenty’s in the early part of the week leading to rain and thunder storm’s to the end of the week dropping the air pressure to below 1000 perfect conditions for a fish or two.
With 6 anglers on the lake and plenty of activity on the walk around it was important to spread out and keep the fish on the move.
