Foremark weekly report week ending 04/06/2017

Telephone Number: 01283 703202


Foremark has fished steady this week. With the warm bright sunny days, the water temperature has increased which has slowed the fishing slightly. Some of the resident course fish have spawned and we now have plenty of very small fry around the banks and most features. Some of the trout are finding that these pin fry are very tasty and are getting preoccupied on them (you might be able to take advantage of this in a week or so as the fry are growing quickly). The cooler temperatures that are forecast in the next week should help to cool the water a little.


Monday saw season permit holder Mr R Cotterill use dry flies from the bank and land ten fish while Mr J Wooward fished from a boat taking 7 fish on buzzers and cdc buzzers off the surface.

Mr Worley and Mr Spence fished from a boat on Tuesday tacking 18 fish between them again on buzzers down carver’s arm.

On Wednesday Mr J Jack used diawl bach and crunchers to tempt 20 fish to his boat also fishing down carver’s arm. Derby county club angler Mr M grant had some success off the bank using shipman’s buzzer and an orange hopper.


Thursdays top rods were yet again Tony and Ruth Kirk catching 11 fish from the bank in Flamingo bay on olive buzzers and on fish on a dry fly.

Friday was a difficult day for most but Mr T Kenchington fished from the banks and took 10 fish and Mr D Barker landed 7 fish to his boat on buzzers and diawl bach. By using size 18 spiders and buzzers Mr J Machin landed 8 fish to the bank in bramble bay.

Mr S Wilson was back on the water for the first time in a week and landed 8 trout during the afternoon on damsel and greenwells- daddies from sun bless bay.

Tony and Ruth Kirk were back on Sunday for another visit but it was Ruth turn to catch more than Tony (well done Ruth) a total of 17 fish between them again from the bank.


Kirby Fly Fishers held their annual boat match on Sunday with 13 rods taking part a total of 37 fish were caught giving a match rod average of 2.8.

The winner and 1st place rod was Mr W Lewin with a weight of 9lbs 15oz for 6 fish Second place was Mr A Pentney with a weight of 9lbs 15oz for 5 fish (just one more fish would have made the difference). Third place went to Mr B Parker with a weight of 9lbs 10oz for 6 fish. Biggest fish of the day wass caught by Mr G Partridge 2lbs15 oz.
