FISHING REPORT – WEEK ENDING 16/06/13
Last week 102 rods caught 192 fish for an average of 1.88 fish per rod.
The fishing was a little more difficult as the fish switched onto the caenis but there have been lots of fish moving but generally harder to catch. The most consistent tactic has been to fish a Damsel Nymph on a floating line but CDC Emergers, small white Moth, Buzzers and Bloodworm patters have all accounted for a few fish.
The biggest fish of the week was a 10lb brown which was caught by fishery regular Steve Gowan of Knowle who was fishing the bank of Cocks Close and he took it on a Diawl Bach fished on a floating line, the fish was safely returned to the water. Alec Kerr of Nuneaton also fished the bank of Cocks Close and took a five fish limit and returned a further six fish to 4lb 3oz which all came to a Damsel Nymph fished on a floating line.
On the members’ water Great Pool, Kevin Brookes and John Kingslake, both of Tamworth shared a boat and they both took five fish limits with fish to 4lb, all coming to Montana Nymphs. Alan Moore of Coventry fished the Hall Pool and caught seven fish to 3½lb using small Buzzers and Damsels on a floating line
All of the pools have seen a lot of fish moving with excellent rises during the day. Olives and buzzers are hatching but the fish are pre-occupied with the small caenis fly and therefore it has been a little more challenging. The road bank and middle willows are the better spots on Cocks Close to fish. On the members’ waters, the deeper water near the dam walls is producing most fish.
The fishery opens at 8am and closes at dusk (10pm at the moment).
