Foremark weekly report week ending 07/05/2017

Telephone Number: 01283 703202



Despite the breezy East North Eastly wind during the last week the fishing has remained good with Damsels and buzzers still producing the most fish. During the sunny parts of the day lots of Hawthorne flies have been dancing and flying around. The odd angler has had a go with dry flies and had some results, however this has been a little patchy.


Our blue trout are still showing themselves with catches reported from most areas. The fresh stocking as kept the sport in Flamingo bay going.

When the wind has allowed the banks from the sailing club bay all the way round to the wires in carver’s arm have produced fish while the boats have had the better sport around gorse bay the wires and bramble bay.


Derby County Angling Club Members C Wilkins and K Smith took to an afternoon boat on Monday and netted 20 fish between them on FABs around Verdun’s point Mr D Hudson took 12 fish from the bank.

Season permit holder S Wilson used black buzzers from his boat on Tuesday and took over20 trout. Mr P Walker bank fished with booby and buzzers and recorded 11 fish.


The wind started to kick in on Wednesday but Mr P Ravencroft fished from a boat down carver’s arm and tempted 9 fish on buzzer. David Nimmo fished Damsel and orange fritz from his boat on Thursday and took 8 fish. During a last four-hour session, Mr A. Kearns used black dry fly to tempt 5 trout including three blues from in front of the trees in Flamingo.

On Friday with the stong wind boat was by far the better option Mr S. Hawley and his boat partner Mr B.Trussel boated 26 fish on beaded nymphs and buzzers.


Strong winds again on Saturday, so again a boat was the best option J Noble 21 fish M Carrig 18 fish, N Cozens 10 fish P Ward 17 fish D Allen 10 fish

Sunday a drop-in wind speed if not direction, and most anglers opting for a boat buzzers and damsels still topped the list of successful flies. Top rod was mr Bristow with 20 trout Mr K Lomas took 6 including a 5lb blue and Mr Dobrzycki caught 11 on damsel.
