Foremark weekly report week ending 24/07/2016

Telephone Number: 01283 703202


Very hot and very bright weather over the last week has raised the water temperature and put the majority of the trout down into deep water. The change in the catch returns shows the difference, Monday was by far the best day of the week with fish willing to take shuttlecock buzzers and hoppers from the surface as season permit holders Mr Graney and Mr Burton showed catching 17 fish to their boat. As the week progressed the fishing became much more of a challenge. During the rest of the week the best method has been to fish black lures deep and cover plenty of water. For more up to information give the fishing lodge a call on: 01283703202 . Now as the weather has started to cool a little, things may change from day to day.



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.
