Wow what a week it has been here at Foremark we have seen a mix of Frosts, Winds, Sun shine and Snow. And yet a good number of anglers have ventured out and they have been rewarded with some excellent fishing. The trout have shown in excellent numbers from the banks and the boats. Flamingo bay has been in top form with fish falling in the most to intermediate lines teamed up with cat’s whisker, damsels and black and green tadpoles with the boobies also attracting a lot of fish. Sun blessed bay and bramble bay have also fished well from the banks. The boats have seen some superb catches from Flamingo bay and the dam wall in front of the lodge. On the far side the cascade and heron bay have also been in the running.

Coppenhal Fly Fishers held their annual bank match on Saturday 16.03.2013 with 19 rods with 6 fish limits( all but one rod caught their limit) and there were also numerous returns catching a total of 185 fish for a rod average of 9.7 the biggest fish of the match was 5LBS 8oz

The top 3 weights are as follows:

D. Ollier 18LBS 8oz, I.Buckley 17LBS 14oz, M.Laycock 17LBS 8oz, N.Gregory 17LBS 8oz

BEST FISH OF THE WEEK: this goes to Mr M Chater (metal Mickey) a over wintered 8LBS 10oz Rainbow caught from the sailing club pontoon on intermediate line and a natural damsel pattern. (Nice fish Mickey)

With another stocking due before the Easter break the prospects are look good, for some exciting early season sport.
