FISHING REPORT - WEEK ENDING 01/05/16
Last week 57 rods caught 239 fish for an average of 4.19.
Another decent week despite the very cool and not very spring like weather causing the number of anglers to drop. Even in the cold winds the fish have still been rising well and Buzzers fished on floating lines has been the top tactic. Black, olive and red superglue Buzzers or small Emergers have been the top flies this week. There are still fish also to be caught on Damsels, black Tadpoles and Cats Whiskers.
The largest fish was a 6lb rainbow which was safely caught and released by Birmingham angler Ray Inman who was fishing from a boat on Cocks Close and it was the best of a 13 fish catch caught on black and green Buzzers. Regular angler Dave Bratby of Birmingham also caught 13 fish to 4lb including a brown trout using small Buzzers on a floating line from the bank of Cocks Close. John Riley of Atherstone caught ten fish to 4lb from a boat on Cocks Close using a Stimulator pattern to tempt them all. Pete Ward of Redditch caught eight fish from a boat on the Park Meadow pool and these all came to a GRHE fished on a floating line.
The fish are moving on most areas of Cocks Close and Park Meadow but the high bank and the old boat jetty corner on Cocks Close have been the hot spots.
