Same story as for other systems but with its crystal clear water and cautious trout the Cusher has tested the skills of anglers over the past few days.  Without doubt those anglers well versed in French nymphing techniques at range have fared better.  Resident guide Brian Russell recommends knee pads at present to make for more comfortable fishing while maintaining a low profile if you wish to get anywhere close on the fish at present.  By employing these tactics it is still possible to have a satisfactory day on the River at present with plenty of fish in the 20cm to 30cm range that will succumb to well presented light nymphs at range.  Stealth will ensure success unless water arrives and  livens things up over Easter.
