Foremark end of season report
Season ending 30th November 2012
5,283 rods caught 20,449 trout, returning 12,536 fish for a seasonal rod average of 3.87
It has been another good season here at Foremark, despite the weathers best efforts, with yet another excellent seasonal rod average (3.8).
Early season sport from the bank was superb with the good old Damsel pattern taking some very good catches including the season’s best brown trout a stunning 9lb 4oz caught and returned by Mr D Sanderson whilst bank fishing Flamingo bay.
Then as the water temperatures improved early season buzzers fished well followed by the fabulous Hawthorn fly hatches providing a fortnight of good dry fly fishing, but then came the rain, the wettest spell for years, and boy did it rain day after day so it was back to the lures and boobies.
Mr J.Carter found this season’s best rainbow trout another stunning 11lb fish caught in deep water around number one boy on a homemade deep fished lure. This fish was also returned. Due to the lack of terrestrial fly life this year, and the, wet weather, the dry fly fishing was not up to the usual standards of Foremark, therefore the deeper fished lures & nymphs caught best. This said expectations are high for top surface sport next season with consistent water levels.
Towards the end of the season the fish moved back towards the bank and the season finished with some good catches and steady averages.
