Last week 85 rods caught 402 fish for an average of 4.72.

Another good week in terms of the fishing but high winds reduced the numbers and made it tricky casting for those that fished.

The largest fish of the week was a 12lb 8oz rainbow caught by Keith Shuttleworth of Coventry who was fishing the bank of Cocks Close and he took it on a Montana Nymph on a floating line. Fishery member Andrew Moulder of Dorridge, fished on Cocks Close from a boat and caught seven fish to 9lb using small Nymphs. Dave Bratby of Birmingham fished a few times in the week and on his best day he caught 14 fish to 7lb using a special Damsel Nymph fished on a floating line.

Mr and Mrs Anthony Edwards of Claverdon fished from a boat on the Great Pool and caught seven fish to 7lb 13oz which fell to Buzzers fished on a floating line. On the Park Meadow pool father and son Michael and Paul Hanson of Nuneaton, caught 14 fish between them and they found black or green patterns worked.

The fish are moving well as the weather warms a little with large fly hatches starting to occur. Buzzer patterns, CDC Emergers, Diawl Bach and P T Nymphs have all been successful this week. Lures are still catching too with black or green Tadpoles, Cats Whisker, orange Fritz and Minkies doing well.

The best areas have been the old boat jetty corner and high bank on Cocks Close, the shallow water and the far bank from the boat jetty on Great Pool, with Park Meadow fishing well all over.
