FISHING REPORT – WEEK ENDING 2/10/16
Last week 62 rods caught 102 fish for an average of 1.64.
The fishing has been a little mixed this week with quite a few sunny days when the sun has been shining and no breeze giving hard fishing but on the more overcast days it has been a lot better. The boats are still doing best but as the weather cools the bank fishing will improve.
The biggest fish of the week was a 9lb 2oz rainbow caught by Ian Reeve of Rugby who was fishing from a boat on Cocks Close and it was the best of an eight fish catch taken on black/green Buzzers fished on a floating line. John Riley of Atherstone also used a green Buzzer to tempt an 8lb 6oz rainbow from Cocks Close.
Steve Gowan of Knowle caught six fish with the best, an 8lb 12oz, which fell to a Bloodworm pattern fished on a floating line. Kevin Burgess of Birmingham had an eight fish catch with his best, a 4lb 12oz and these all fell to a Copper John pattern fished on a floating line.
Terry Holder of Barwell fished the bank of Park Meadow and had four fish including a brown of 3lb using the Washing Line tactic.
Best patterns have been black or olive Buzzers, Damsel Nymph, sunken Daddies and Diawl Bach fished on floating lines.
The fish have still been shoaling with the best areas around the lodge corner or the old boat jetty on Cocks Close.
