We have had a bit of flyfishing recently despite fierce winds and surprisingly low sea temperatures. This is primarily at the mouth on the springs when at high tide clear water is pushed into the mouth. Mainly young black tipped kingies and some threadfin. I also took a novice up to Vidal where he caught some 3 spot, but he was still not accomplished enough to try for something bigger. Although it has been very dry and extremely hot recently the mouth is still pumping water out on the lows as there is plenty of water in the lake.
