REPORTS

After last week’s bad weather in particular the high wind speeds we were optimistic that this report would offer some better news. However Monday came and of the 7 rods who braved the calmer but still boisterous conditions it showed because only 5 fish were caught. Tuesday was no better and it didn’t matter what was attempted and what areas that were fished. Mr Scudder located small shoals of fish with a fish finder noting they were 20 feet plus down. Wednesday was a better day for some with Mr K Hardy taking 4 from the bank on hut point and Scott Wilson boating 4 on a DI 5 line and a booby. 

Foremark has continued with some fabulous early season sport, during the last week over 1300 trout were caught! During the week.

 

On Monday the sailing club bay and Flamingo bay was the area to be with plenty of fish eager to take damsels and black and green lures. Tuesday was a lovely spring day with a slightly overcast day with a light warm breeze, the banks fished well all day but the afternoon was superb with the last four-hour permit being popular and productive. Derby County Angling Club member netting 19 fish on damsels in the morning and buzzers on a floating line in the afternoon. The weather on Wednesday was very bright and calm almost like summer with the temperature going to 17 degrees this did slow the fishing down during the middle part of the day but as the sun became lower in the sky flamingo bay and verdons point came to life. The boats fished better than the banks during the day, being able to access deeper water. Mr T Cook and his boat partner Mr C Cook took 28 fish between them on intermediate lines near Flamingo bay. Mr D Hussey fished from the bank on Thursday and netted 25 fish on a Pittsford pea while Mr P Harding and Mr J Perry took 40 fish to their boat. By Friday the banks and the boats fished well again with damsels doing the business. Buzzers produced the better results on Saturday again round Verdons point and flamingo bay. Derby County Angling Club members Mr P Webb And Mr C Wilkins enjoyed their Sundays fishing netting over 40 fish between them from the banks. Mr G Moody also netted 24 trout and his fishing partner won the bragging rights by netting over30 fish.

Sunday Foremark Fly Fishers held a joint bank and boat match with 13 rods catching a total of 104 fish for a match average of 8.

Six rods fishing from a boat and 7 fishing from the bank, the bank produced the more consistent better weights with the overall winner being Mr Dave Steer with a weight of 16lbs 11oz for 8 fish, he also caught the biggest fish being 3lbs 8oz.

A real mixed week for results this week the start of the week was a little slow however some anglers still managed to get amongst the fish on sinking lines and long drifts in open water. Tuesday was very similar with muddlers fishing best during the cloudy spells. Wednesday the rod average improved from 1.8 to 4.6 with floating lines fished in conjunction with boobies and tadpoles fished on or just under the surface. By Thursday the rod average was up to 6.1 again floating lines with daddy long legs doing best. Thursdays weather had a big effect as the rod average fell to 0.4, this followed on to Saturday. Suprise Sunday the rod average was making a good recovery reaching 2.6 the fish were back on the feed taking flys from the surface and the top layers.


Pick of the Week

Mr S Wilson, boated 20 plus fish on Thursday in open water near buoy4 on daddies. Season permit holder Mr R Cotterill, landing 12 fish to his boat on a ghost tip line with a black and gold sparkler. Mr P bailey enjoyed a last 4 hour boat on Sunday taking 6 fish to a yellow daddy and hopper.


Our thanks again to Mr Phil Harding for choosing Foremark once again to hold Midlands Inter Police Force Floating Line Only Boat Match which was held on Wednesday with 21 rods catching 126 trout for a match average of 6. Congratulations go to the overall winner Mr T. Smith with 23 fish all caught on a surface fished coal booby. Photographs of the winners can be seen on our face book page:  https://www.facebook.com/Flyfishstore/

Heavy rain showers have been a major feature in the weather at end of the week along with some bright sunshine and light winds. However the majority of the sport has been on or just below the surface. The large numbers of pin fry have meant that a lot of the trout have been preoccupied on it and very visible. Black knats, Hoppers, Cdc shuttlecock buzzers, Floating may fly and large daddies fished static on long drifts in open water has produced the better results. Sinking lines and intermediate lines have also worked for some anglers using boobies and Dawson’s olives.


Mr Clarke and Mr Martin took 13 fish on a mix of shipman’s and hoppers. Season permit holders Mr Graney and Mr Burton landed 16 fish on daddies and may fly. While on Sunday Mr G Owen fished a variety of dry’s to take 10 fish to his boat.


Check out our stocking video of 1000 rainbows last week on our facebook page www.facebook.com/FlyFishStore with a further stocking of 1000 rainbows due this week


Recently we have had a few nice pike caught on fly so we are now offering limited fly only pike fishing, one boat a day.

Water levels are now up and the water clarity is very clear, so if fishing from the banks look for deep water with a drop off close in. Time to look out for our usual fly hatch which normally happens this time of year so cdc shuttle cocks and hoppers are worth trying a dry fly again this week.

Buzzers have still been the most productive fly over the last week, fished slow and deep. Blue flash damsels, boobies have also worked well during the week. When the conditions have been right a dry hawthorn fly or bibio have also worked. We have had a good evening rise a couple of evenings this last week. The last four hour permit anglers have been able to enjoy some good sport on those evenings.

Best areas from the banks have been around flamingo bay verdons point and the sailing club pontoon. If boat fishing is your chose then heron point and heron bay have been holding lots of fish around the cascade and number 8 buoy.

 

Mr C Beard fish on the last four hour permit on Monday and took 12 fish to his boat. Tuesday Mr S Savage banked 28 fish.

Another tremendous start to the season at Foremark with over 2,000 fish being caught.

Both bank and boat anglers have found plenty of sport in most of the normal early season areas. Most line types have worked well with floating lines just edging it. The usual black and green lures along with damsels, cats whiskers fished from the bank have done well however intermediate lines and sinking lines have been best from the boats. Verdons point, sailing club bay and the area just in front of the lodge have been popular. Bramble and sun blessed bay have been very good at times. The boats have found good sport around number 8buoy around the cascade and gorse bay.


Best fish so far was a stunning 8Lbs 4oz brown caught by Mr J Thubrn on a pink fritz (this fish was returned) Mr M Smith has also netted a 8Lbs rainbow from the bank. Over the last six days there has been numerous catches of 20 plus fish again to both the banks and the boats. We have received numerous positive comments over the last few days about the quality and size of the fish. With the average size around the 2lbs mark


The winner of this week’s prize draw of a free all day boat voucher went to Mr David Coe from Long Eaton.
