Foremark report week ending 02/11/2014
Telephone Number: 01283 703202


Fishing at Foremark this past week has been very similar to the previous weeks both in methods and areas. Minkie boobies on intermediate and slow sinking lines working best although floating fry and drys on floating lines have taken their fare share of the fish. The lodge bank, Verdond point have produced from the bank, while moving round and drifting has been the best option for the boats.

Best rod this week goes to season permit holder Mr S Wilson for netting ten fish including a nice 5Lbs 8oz specimen to his boat on Friday using a floating fry in conjunction with a claret dabbler.

Water clarity is currently very good and the water levels are still very low this week and some areas of the bank may have soft mud/ sand. Just to remind you that we run a no wading above the knee policy.
