Foremark weekly report week ending 26/06/2016

Telephone Number: 01283 703202

 Heavy rain showers again during last week have been a major feature in the weather. The best of the fishing has still remained on the surface or in the top three to four feet. With large numbers of pin fry moving along the dam wall up by the tower boat anglers have been having some good sport on fry imitations and dry flys. Hoppers, Cdc shuttlecock buzzers, Floating fry and large daddies fished static on long drifts in open water have also produced some good results. Sinking lines and intermediate lines have also worked for some anglers using boobies and blobs.

 Mr J Scragg fish on Monday afternoon and took his 8 fish limit on greased up muddler. Season permit holder Mr P Walker bank fished on Tuesday and got in amongst them netting nearly forty trout and some nice sized perch. On Wednesday it was Mr G Owen’s turn boating 17 fish on a mix of dry fly’s including black hoppers. Thursday up by the tower orange blob was the way to go as season permit holder Mr S Wilson took 16 trout. Friday Mr Wilson was back again on the blob for another 10 fish. Saturday Mr R Cotterill took 15 trout on a homemade pin fry pattern. Mr S Gaskell was out on a boat on Sunday and netted 16 trout on fry patterns.

 West Mids Police held a small match on Saturday 8 rods took 17 fish for a rod average of 2.1 with Mr G.Cann taking pole position.

Recently we have had a few nice pike caught on fly so we are now offering limited fly only pike fishing, one boat a day. All pike fishing must be PRE- BOOKED you must also have a suitable unhooking mat, the correct size landing net, long Forceps, all fly’s must be attached to a wire trace,  All fly’s to be 4 inch or longer in length. All pike to be returned. NO BANK FISHING FOR PIKE.

Water levels are now up and the water clarity is very clear, so if fishing from the banks look for deep water with a drop off close in. Time to look out for our usual fly hatch which normally happens this time of year so cdc shuttle cocks and hoppers are  still worth trying  again this week don’t forget you fry imitations especially first thing and late on.

 Don’t forget to pick up your loyalty card from the lodge, once you have purchased 10 of the same permit, your next visit of that permit option is FREE valid at all three fisheries, Thornton-Foremark-Draycote
