Foremark weekly report week ending 14/05/2017

Telephone Number: 01283 703202


Foremark has continued to fish well over the last week with the fish still holding in the bay’s and down carvers arm. Buzzers and damsels are still the go to flies and have produced most of the fish this week. Some anglers have however been having some success on hawthorns, fab blobs, black and green montana, and foam carixa. Water levels are now up and still rising and the water clarity is excellent. We have had a mixed week of weather from North east winds to bright calm days, the mornings and the evenings have produced the best sport.


Top rod on Monday was Mr S Emery with 6 fish from the bank. John Mack and his boat partner Cathy landed 13 trout on Tuesday on buzzers and diawl bach with green checks while Derby County Angling Club member Neil Cozens banked 18 fish on buzzers.


On Wednesday Mr Chris Winfield from Derby County Angling Club fished black buzzers and banked 9 trout during a morning session. Season permit holder Mr D Berven fish from the banks on Thursday and netted 11trout as did Mr B Bateman using damsels and diawl bach and season permit holder Mr S Wilson took over 20 fish trout to his boat in Flamingo bay.


Friday was the turn of season permit holder Chris Shreeve to get amongst the fish from the bank netting 18 fish on a DI3 line teamed up with a orange FAB blob and a damsel mr Cozens was back on the water and took 22 fish on buzzer including a 3lbs12oz rainbow.


Mr G Martin had a spell on the banks on Saturday and landed 17 trout on buzzers and damsels, Mr S Wilson also took a boat out on Saturday and fished flamingo bay and sun blest bay and again landed over 20 trout.


Sunday was another good fishing day Mr G Owen took 25 trout to his boat on dial bach and FAB season permit holder Mr R Cotterill netted 15 to his boat including a nice 3lbs plus blue. Mr D Baker had a good day fishing from the bank in the morning netting 9 fish on blue flash damsel and then fished from a boat in the afternoon and took another 12 fish on a combination of damsels and buzzers.
