Marmelos fishery in Dry-Zone S. East -:   Last weekend we received the de Botton group of 8 anglers which had a great start with 863 landed peacock bass in just 2 1/2 days. Last week, the Long group lifted the mean to 162 peacock bass per angler in the week, largest of which weighed 18lbs.. No significant rain episodes in the forecast and dropping water levels are getting near the ideal level in the coming days.

Guess work

Water levels continue dropping in our fisheries in the Dry-Zone S.East. The Marmelos river is less than 1 ft up in the mid section, but it has drained almost to the perfect level in the headwaters and dropped in the upper lagoons almost to perfection. Tendency is expected to continue in the coming days with a positive weather forecast.
