Jack I take it you have a canoe or inflatable?
Depending on the grass problem as I haven't been there in 2 years.

Spot A is for 2 and 3 that is where the gravel bed should be just feel around it should be between 2m and 1.7m deep that is your best bet for fish.


Spot B can also produce a nice fish when nothing else happens.

If there is nobody on swim 1 and spot A is dead drop about 5 m from the side on spot C and D. The fish like to sit there sometimes.


I will PM you some bait advice.
