Foremark weekly report week ending 6thAugust 2017

Telephone Number: 01283 703202

The unpredictable and changing weather has played a large part in last week’s results but looking at the thermometer this morning it is still steady at 17 and the indications are that may improve further over the next few days. Some of the newly stocked fish that were introduced last Tuesday have been happy to feed in the upper layers of the water on dries off the top.Due to a broken oil seal, the boils have not been working for the last few days and as a result the fish have started to spread across the reservoir again. The valve tower, numbers 1 and 4 buoys and following the recent rain, the cascade have all produced fish, allowing the boat anglers to spread out a little bit more than of late. The bank anglers have still found the fishing very challenging with very few offers, but in the evenings a few trout are moving in to the margins and feeding on the fry.

Fishing the boils, a week last Sunday, Mr Easton and his son boated 10 fish on buzzers whilst Derby County member, Mr Jacks boated 6 in a 4-hour evening session taking fish to over 3 pounds on red pheasant tails

Monday was a poor day, although season ticketholders Worley and Spence recorded 5 to the boat for their morning session, whilst on Tuesday seasonal ticket holder, Scott Wilson netted 5 on olive lures fished on a DI3 in the boils, whilst regulars Mr Coley and Mr.Taft returned 4 fish for their session.

The fishing was very hard on Wednesday with only Mr. Dyer catching fish, boating 2 caught with daddies during an evening session from the boils, whilst Thursday wasn’t much better, with only staff member Mark Clarke catching more than one fish.

The fishing improved on Friday with the cooler weather, causing the fish to move away from the area of the boils. Scott Wilson boated 3 whilst Mr Dyer took 6 on a Greenwell’s daddy,

Saturday saw rapid weather changes with sun, showers, thunder and lighting and heavy downpours during the day. Ruth Tony Kirk took 4 fish during the day and reported lots of fish moving across the reservoir whilst Mr Perrie and his son landed 5 in their afternoon session. Sunday saw more settled weather with the majority of anglers catching, the best catch being made by Derby County member Mr Jacks who took advantage of the evening weather to land a nice brace on damsels with the best being over 4 pounds.
