With the warm temperatures and bright conditions, angling was hard work and rod attendance low. It was mainly the booked in guests that fished and early morning and late evening offered the best chances once again. There were a number of grilse reported. Richard Evans recorded 2 grilse caught on worm from Red Roof.
