Foremark weekly report week ending 21/05/2017

Telephone Number: 01283 703202


Foremark Fishing remains very good with last week’s rod average being 6.8. Buzzers and damsels are still the best flies and the best areas are still carvers arm for the boats and the bays for the bank. The weather during the week has been a little wet at times but we have also had some bright and sunny periods. The weather forecast for the next few days is looking very nice with high pressure building, we might have a few days of similar weather conditions (fingers crossed).


Mr J Scragg was back fishing from a boat on Monday, fishing down carver’s arm on red and black buzzers and netted 12 trout.

Tuesday the trout were well on the feed and some of our season permit holders got amongst the feeding fish J Graney had over 20 on cormorants and hoppers, Mr B Burton had 33 on floating line and damsels. J Fogg took 39 to his boat while J Worley and M Spence landed 19 between them on sinking lines and boobies.


Wow didn’t it rain on Wednesday but Mr S Savage fished the banks and did not let the weather put him of his stride netting 24 fish (well done).

Thursday saw Mr J Scragg back, and on the buzzers again landing another25 fish to his boat. Mr T Young fished damsel and buzzers and took 14trout. Mr D Bevan fished the banks and landed 10 trout including a blue trout which measured 50cm and a rainbow of the same length
