PACKINGTON TROUT FISHERY
TELEPHONE NUMBER: 01676 522754
FISHING REPORT – WEEK ENDING 10/4/16
Last week 70 rods caught 347 fish for an average of just under 5 per rod.
Another cracking week on the trout fishery with lots of fish moving on the top and coming to a variety of tactics. Small imitative patterns fished on floating lines have been working well with Diawl Bach, CDC Emergers, black Buzzer, olive Buzzer and GRHE the pick of the natural flies. For those who like pulling Lures, Cats Whisker, black Tadpole and Minkies have accounted for plenty of fish.
The largest fish of the week was an estimated 14lb rainbow caught by Mark Vickers of Birmingham who was fishing from a boat on Cocks Close and he caught it on a CDC Buzzer fished on a floating line and it was the best of a seven fish catch, all taken on the same tactic. Rod Lacey of Nuneaton fished catch and release from a boat and caught 15 fish to 10lb 8oz on his favoured Diawl Bach fished on a floating line. Colin Hichins of Coventry fished the Park Meadow pool from a boat and caught four fish to 10lb using small Nymphs fished on floating line. John Bartlam of Atherstone also fished Park Meadow and had eight fish to 6lb using small Buzzers.
The best areas have been the lodge corner and the road bank on Cocks Close, although fish are moving all around the pool. On Park Meadow, the dam wall and the middle areas have been best. The browns we stocked have been showing well and anglers are reminded they must be returned.
