Foremark week ending 12/05/13 report
Fishing has still remained very good this week seeing 182 rods fishing and catching 1025 trout for a rod average of 5.6 despite the very strong wind on Thursday. Another two trout over ten pounds have been caught this week .10LBs 8oz rainbow was caught on Wednesday by Mr P Thompson to a damsel from the cascade ,and Mr G. Edgington netted and returned a fish estimated at 12lbs plus.
The fishing from the banks still remains in form this week with some rods doing very well. Mr S.Wilson even managed 10 fish from Verdons point on Thursday morning when the wind was at its worst. The fish are continuing to take buzzers and diawl bach with more confidence. Floating lines and midge tip lines are doing well. The water level is still down giving good space on the banks. In some areas, and the clarity is still good. The boats continue to fish better than the banks with numerous catches in the teen’s still occurring. Lots of fish showing along carvers arm, cascade and heron bay. Damsels and cats whisker have fared very well also in Sun blest and Bramble bay. Flamingo bay has also fished well on intermediate lines with damsels, black and green tadpoles. Floating and midge tip lines with buzzers and diawl batch have also been productive for the boats.
Thornton Fly Fishers held their annual Foremark match on Sunday. 9 Rods took 102 fish up to 4lbs for a staggering 11.3 rod average. (well done gents)
Don’t forget our last four hour permit at only £10.00 for a one fish kill then catch and release.(This is now proving very popular on the warmer days)
