Foremark weekly report week ending 25/06/2017

Telephone Number: 01283 703202


Foremark has slowed a little this week especially after the 35 degree temperatures recorded on Wednesday, however prior to that on Tuesday the fishing can only be described as brilliant. Mr Graney banked 9 trout on floating hoppers, Scott Wilson boated 18 fish, all off the top and Keith Coley boated 15 including a 3 ¾ lb fish and 3 others all over 3lb.Rod average for Tuesday was 6.5

Wednesday was a total disaster, however Thursday saw a slight recovery are the rod average recovered to 2 and that went into Friday with the only mentionable catch being Mr Scragg who boated 9 fish on a dry bibio. Saturday saw most people catch albeit 2s and 3s before Sunday took a slight turn for the worst with Mr Taylor being the only angler to catch 4.


Water clarity through the week recovered very well as soon as the wind picked up and is now back to very good.


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 near the surface and close to the dam wall with small fry patterns and dry fly’s taking many of the fish.


With the boils working well many of the lake residence are in the vicinity although not actually in them, fish have been showing between the boils and the dam wall and between buoys number 3 & 4.


The forecast for the coming week is looking quite favourable although it may rain on Wednesday morning the temperature looks to be more in line with what we will like and the lake water temperature should continue to drop returning the fishing to what it was like at the start of last week.
