Telephone Number: 01283 703202


Foremark has continued to fish well over the last week despite the bright sunshine on Saturday although Sunday’s weather was a little more challenging. Currently our rod average is 3.3


Water clarity through the week remained very good until today.


This seasons pin fry has now started to grow rapidly and some of the trout are finding them irresistible. Most of the sport this week has been on or near the surface with dry fly’s taking, many of the fish.


With the hotter weather the boils should come into their own fish have been showing between the boils and the dam wall.


Monday Mr S Owen and his boat partner Mr M Cartlidge had a hectic day fishing down Carver’s arm landing 50 fish to the boat on floating lines with boobies and Silver Invicta


By Tuesday the fish turned to damsel’s, buzzers and diawl bach. Season permit holder Mr G Richards fished the banks of sailing club bay to take 5 trout during a morning session while out on the boats Mr K Coley and Mr B Taft had 21 trout.


Wednesday Mr Brownrige took 8 fish to his morning boat on cdc hoppers. Thursday was a little slower but Mr J Bishop fished the bank near the boat pontoon and netted 4 in the afternoon.


Friday and the fish were out in open water around number 1 buoy and feeding well on dry fly’s. Mr J Scragg and his boat partner Mr K Scragg landed 25 fish on bibio’s and hoppers. Mr S Wilson switched to dry sedge and boated 15.


Mr Noble and Mr Willians boat fished on Saturday morning again around number 1 buoy and landed 19 fish between them. Season permit holder R Cotterill used bobs bits to boat 14.


Sundays bright sun shine and very hot weather made it a very challenging day with no fish showing and few being caught.
