Foremark weekly report week ending 8/08/2016

Telephone Number: 01283 703202

Last week was a quiet weeks fishing, but a busy one for the fishery as we were involved with the Scouts organisation event been held at Foremark with us giving 360 children during the week the opportunity to try fly fishing, gutting the trout & cooking the trout on a BBQ.

The 30 anglers who did fish during the week found the conditions difficult with the trout in the aerators not playing ball. The trout that were caught were mostly taken on sinking lines with black & green lures or damsel.

With the warm weather Foremark bank anglers can fish the dam wall, this gives you access to the deeper water, ask the lodge for details.

The clarity remains good and with the reservoir stocked again last Tuesday we would expect an improvement to the sport this week.

Contact the lodge for latest update 01283 703202
