Even more rain is keeping the mouth of the lake open although the channels keep changing. The water coming out is freezing compared to the sea temperature and the discolouration has not made it any easier to fish with a fly. The same conditions prevail along the coast as the lip is far out in most places which makes it difficult to get a fly into deep water. Unless you find a channel close to the shore one has to go up to Vidal for good flyfishing conditions and here you will take shad if you work for them as it is easier to find deep water and the water is clearer. What is very strange is there are few if any 3 spots around.

For those looking for tackle etc I now have a very well stocked shop in town.
