Foremark weekly report week ending 11/06/2017

Telephone Number: 01283 703202


Foremark has suffered some very wet and windy weather over the last week with some days the boats not going out onto the water. However, some of the brave souls who did venture out still managed to get some good sport. with some anglers opting to fish floating lines and dries or buzzers, and the others fishing a little deeper on damsels and boobies. The water level remains high and the clarity is still very good. Some of the margins now has some light weed growth which the pin fry are finding cover from the fry feeding trout.


Monday was a very wet day with few anglers on the water, but Mr A McPherson still managed a couple of very nice rainbows from his rain saddened boat.

Tuesday How the wind did blow Mr N Parks was the only one to step up to the challenge of trying to fish from the banks for the last four hours, sadly no fish but well done for trying.


Wednesday morning and the wind was still blowing with the promise of lighter winds in the afternoon. The catches were a little patchy only to be expected after the previous days weather. Tony and Ruth Kirk dropped in for another session on the banks with their olive buzzers. A walk down to the area between sun blest and bramble bay were Ruth managed to catch 8 and Tony catching 6 this is the second week on the trot that Ruth has banked more than Tony. (I was asked to politely point this out). Season permit holder Mr B Burton also banked 6 fish on buzzers and a green damsel. Derby county angling club member Mr Price landed 7 fish including two at around 4lbs.


Thursday Derby county angling club member Mr N cozens followed advice and walked to bramble bay used deep fished buzzers on a dead drift and landed 10 trout. Mr j Scragg and his boat partner fished dry bibio and took 12 fish.


Fridays top rod was Mr S Wilson He boat fished in carver’s arm and landed 10 trout including one blue trout on damsel and buzzers.


Saturday Mr Scragg was back on the dry fly fishing down near the wires boating 14 trout despite the swirling wind.

On Sunday Mr D merphy and his boat partner Mr R Cotterill landed 16 fish on a mix of methods including the washing line, dries and floating fry.
