Foremark weekly report week ending 02/07/2017

Telephone Number: 01283 703202


The fishing at Foremark this week has fluctuated according to the weather with the cooler, cloudy days producing better results than the hot sunny midsummer days, all in all, stereotypical high summer reservoir fishing.


Last Thursday was a grey rainy day that saw the fish respond to the weather with the reservoir producing a superb daily average of over 5 fish per rod. Several anglers recorded double figure catches including Mr Garney, Mr. Scragg, Mr Scott and Mr Critchley. Best catch to the boat was 26 by Mr Ball and Critchley. Successful flies included hoppers, dry bibios, sedges and daddies.


Catches for the rest of the week fluctuated according to the weather with daily averages ranging from 1 to 2.5. Tuesday saw some notable catches including13 to the boat by Mr Coley, whilst Mr Grainey and Mr Burton netted 11 and regular, Mr Wilson caught 10.


The rest of the week proved challenging with most anglers reporting large numbers of fish showing on top, but frustratingly, they proved hard to tempt. Floating fry patterns, dries and small lures or blobs pulled sub surface seemed to provide the best chance of success. Notable catches included 9 by Mr Baker on Sunday whilst Mr Buckley and his partner netted 14 on Saturday


Water clarity through the week has been and remains very good.


This seasons pin fry continue to grow with large numbers to be seen along the boat pontoon & dam wall


Most of the sport this week has been near the surface and close to the dam wall especially behind the aerators with small fry patterns and dry fly’s taking many of the fish.


With the boils working well, many of the lake resident fish are either in them or showing between the boils and the dam wall and also between buoys number 3 & 4. The drift from the dam wall out to number 1 buoy has also proved productive.
