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.

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.

Foremark Fishing Report Week Ending 4/6/2017

Posted by & filed under Reports.

Foremark weekly report week ending 04/06/2017

Telephone Number: 01283 703202

 

Foremark has fished steady this week. With the warm bright sunny days, the water temperature has increased which has slowed the fishing slightly. Some of the resident course fish have spawned and we now have plenty of very small fry around the banks and most features. Some of the trout are finding that these pin fry are very tasty and are getting preoccupied on them (you might be able to take advantage of this in a week or so as the fry are growing quickly). The cooler temperatures that are forecast in the next week should help to cool the water a little.

 

Monday saw season permit holder Mr R Cotterill use dry flies from the bank and land ten fish while Mr J Wooward fished from a boat taking 7 fish on buzzers and cdc buzzers off the surface.

Mr Worley and Mr Spence fished from a boat on Tuesday tacking 18 fish between them again on buzzers down carver’s arm.

On Wednesday Mr J Jack used diawl bach and crunchers to tempt 20 fish to his boat also fishing down carver’s arm. Derby county club angler Mr M grant had some success off the bank using shipman’s buzzer and an orange hopper.

 

Thursdays top rods were yet again Tony and Ruth Kirk catching 11 fish from the bank in Flamingo bay on olive buzzers and on fish on a dry fly.

Friday was a difficult day for most but Mr T Kenchington fished from the banks and took 10 fish and Mr D Barker landed 7 fish to his boat on buzzers and diawl bach. By using size 18 spiders and buzzers Mr J Machin landed 8 fish to the bank in bramble bay.

Mr S Wilson was back on the water for the first time in a week and landed 8 trout during the afternoon on damsel and greenwells- daddies from sun bless bay.

Tony and Ruth Kirk were back on Sunday for another visit but it was Ruth turn to catch more than Tony (well done Ruth) a total of 17 fish between them again from the bank.

 

Kirby Fly Fishers held their annual boat match on Sunday with 13 rods taking part a total of 37 fish were caught giving a match rod average of 2.8.

The winner and 1st place rod was Mr W Lewin with a weight of 9lbs 15oz for 6 fish Second place was Mr A Pentney with a weight of 9lbs 15oz for 5 fish (just one more fish would have made the difference). Third place went to Mr B Parker with a weight of 9lbs 10oz for 6 fish. Biggest fish of the day wass caught by Mr G Partridge 2lbs15 oz.

Foremark has continued to fish well over the last week with the fish still holding in the bay’s and down carvers arm. Buzzers and damsels are still the go to flies and have produced most of the fish this week. Some anglers have however been having some success on hawthorns, fab blobs, black and green montana, and foam carixa. Water levels are now up and still rising and the water clarity is excellent. We have had a mixed week of weather from North east winds to bright calm days, the mornings and the evenings have produced the best sport.

Despite the breezy East North Eastly wind during the last week the fishing has remained good with Damsels and buzzers still producing the most fish. During the sunny parts of the day lots of Hawthorne flies have been dancing and flying around. The odd angler has had a go with dry flies and had some results, however this has been a little patchy.

 

Our blue trout are still showing themselves with catches reported from most areas. The fresh stocking as kept the sport in Flamingo bay going.

When the wind has allowed the banks from the sailing club bay all the way round to the wires in carver’s arm have produced fish while the boats have had the better sport around gorse bay the wires and bramble bay.

 

Derby County Angling Club Members C Wilkins and K Smith took to an afternoon boat on Monday and netted 20 fish between them on FABs around Verdun’s point Mr D Hudson took 12 fish from the bank.

Season permit holder S Wilson used black buzzers from his boat on Tuesday and took over20 trout. Mr P Walker bank fished with booby and buzzers and recorded 11 fish.

David Nimmo fished Damsel and orange fritz from his boat on Thursday and took 8 fish. During a last four-hour session, Mr A. Kearns used black dry fly to tempt 5 trout including three blues from in front of the trees in Flamingo.

On Friday with the stong wind boat was by far the better option Mr S. Hawley and his boat partner Mr B.Trussel boated 26 fish on beaded nymphs and buzzers.
