Foremark week ending 19/05/13 report
Excellent fishing again this week seeing 137 rods fishing and catching 1094 trout for a rod average of 8.0
The fishing from the banks still remains in form this week with some rods doing very well. The fish are continuing to take buzzers and diawl bach with even more confidence this week. 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 very good. On the more overcast days the banks are fishing as well as the boat with fish showing close in and feeding confidently producing numbers into double figures regularly. The boats are finding lots of fish showing in most areas along carvers arm, cascade and heron bay, but not yet showing in large numbers in open water. Damsels are still fairing very well. Sun blest and Bramble bay along with Flamingo bay have also fished well on intermediate lines with damsels, and F.A.B blobs. Floating and midge tip lines with buzzers and diawl batch have also been productive for the boats.
Thornton members Mr Dayman and Mr Perkins fished from a boat on Thursday and netted 29 fish between them on floating line and buzzers.
Season permit holder Mr E. Mcgarrigle fished the bank on Wednesday and landed 21 fish to 4lbs.Mr N. Musson netted the best fish of the week a rainbow of 5LBs 4oz from the bank in Sunblesst bay on a Montana.
Horwich and District Fly Fishers fished a match on Sunday. 12 rods caught 65 trout for a match average of 5.4 overall winner weighing in 15lbs 8oz for his 6 fish and bonus points for another5 fish.
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)
