Foremark’s weekly report week ending 15/06/2014
Telephone Number: 01283 703202
Foremark fished very well at the beginning of the week with very good rod averages from both the banks and the boats.
As the brighter and warmer weather settled in the fishing slowed a little. There has been a variety of different methods and fly patterns used throughout the week depending on the weather conditions and the location of the fish. The full range of lines has been used including DI7, intermediate, hover and floating. The most productive patterns have been: black buzzers, diawl bach, daddies and damsel nymphs. Flamingo bay and bramble bay and sailing club bay from the bank and cascade and gorse bay from the boats. A good number of trout have also been moving along the dam wall on the lodge side. The water has a small amount of colour this week; however the boils should soon be switched on.
Mr J Graney banked over 20 fish on Wednesday on wet fly’s while Mr Dave Evans took over 30 fish on a mix of blobs, tadpoles and diawl bach.
Foremark Fly Fishers held a floating line boat match on Sunday with 14 rods catching 34 fish for a rod average of 2.4 Rob Wheeldon showing the way with 8 fish for 15lbs 3oz.
Foremark is often overshadowed by our other water Draycote, but as already proven this year Foremark can & does produce large overwintered rainbows. Today we picked up a 12lb14oz overwintered trout unfortunately not caught by an angler but dead due to a large perch stuck in its throat. That’s two overwintered trout over 11lb in weight we have seen come out of Foremark this year, makes you wonder what size of trout this 230 acre reservoir with its 120ft of water could produce????? The picture can be seen on our facebook page the link is at the bottom of this report.
