PACKINGTON TROUT FISHERY
TELEPHONE NUMBER: 01676 522754
FISHING REPORT – WEEK ENDING 6/7/14
Last week 66 rods caught 101 fish for an average of 1.53.
Another difficult week particularly on the Day Ticket water Cocks close where the fish have shoaled tight in to the lodge corner. The most successful anglers have caught by fishing weighted Nymphs or sunken Daddies dropping through the shoal. Steve Gowan of Knowle had four fish to 3lb using a Diawl Bach on a floating line.
On the members’ waters, Great Pool has been the pick of the pools with the deep water near the dam wall the best area. Andrew Moulder fished from a boat on there and caught seven fish to 5lb using small P T Nymphs and CDC Emergers. The deeper water on Hall Pool has been the best area and Messrs Funky and Bromley shared a boat and caught ten fish to 3 – 4lb using small Damsel Nymphs.
The Day Ticket water Cocks Close will close on Sunday 13 July for its summer break. Anglers visiting from 1 July can fish at a reduced rate of £15 for a five fish ticket and £10 for an OAP five fish ticket. There will be no catch and release allowed on Cocks Close until the Fishery re-opens on Saturday 27 September.
The Fishery is now holding a ‘Fishing for Heroes’ event on Saturday 4 October, (suspended from 7 June). We are looking for anglers interested in fishing the event and all is required is to get a minimum of £50 sponsorship. The Fishery will donate the fishing free. Anybody interested should contact the lodge for further details and a sponsorship form.
