There was a fish lost on the lower Blackwater on spinner yesterday and a fish lost at Brineys on fly this afternoon. The current water level is just over 0.75 metres at the Four Masters’ Bridge after rising in recent days following heavy rain. The forecast for the weekend is for colder but drier conditions until the start of next week.
