I went to Oord Nebo on Tuesday and was on the water at around 9:00. The flow rate was about 30 kub m/s, the sky was clear and there was almost no wind. The first Smallie was netted at around 9:10 and the last one around 12:00. I got six in total with the last one weighing 3.5 kg. From 13:00 to 16:00 I did not even get a single touch. All in all a nice day.

Herman and I went for a bit of fishing at Oord Nebo on Friday and we were on the water quite early since there were reports that there will be a thunderstorm later in the day. We wanted to get a good days fishing in before the storm hit.
The flow was good, the clarity of the water was a bit disappointing but this cleared up a little later the day.
At first I picked up the fish on a HUGE mustard caddis (no. 8 hook), and suddenly they went quiet. Best fish for the morning for me was just shy of 2,8 kg.
Herman got a few in morning mostly on a chartreuse caddis pattern. The chartreuse seemed to do the trick for the rest of day with most fish taken on it.
That being said there were no real pattern as to what the fish liked. Fish were taken on GRHE, green spider fly, PTN, bloodworm, mustard caddis and then the chatreuse caddis.
Between the two of us we probably landed close to twenty fish, so not a bad days of fishing.
Around 16h00 we decided to pack it up since there were thunder rolling in from the north west.
