Foremark weekly report week ending 03/07/2016
Telephone Number: 01283 703202
This last week has been like a carbon copy of last week as far as areas and methods. 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 and damsels.
