    Rutland Water
    Fish 256 (Season 24,611) Returns 110 (5,026) Rod average 2.32(4.89)
    Last week saw a definite upturn in sport here at Rutland with fish taken on dries down the North Arm; lures on Di3 and 5 in the main basin and washing line tactics are still scoring at Old Hall and Yellowstone. The ‘boils’ were switched on again after they were turned off due to the recent spell of algae disruption. Fish quickly located them with anglers taking fish on them within a couple of hours of switch on! An orange lure on di5 has proved a good starting point on the boils. Don’t forget to let the line ‘swing’ across the boil before commencing the retrieve.

    Rudder anglers have been picking fish up on sinking lines with di3 and 5 most popular depending on wind conditions; black snakes being the most consistent fly. Reports of fish taken from the bank at Stocky Bay were encouraging. Plenty of fish could be seen within range moving throughout the afternoon. We have also experienced some large hatches of caenis of an evening, not the easiest fly to imitate but certainly encourages moving fish. Stocking continues with 2,500 rainbows being introduced this week.

    With the slightly cooler temperatures forecast this week an evening on the bank would be well worth a go – remember you can purchase a ticket from 4.30pm for £12 (1 fish + c&r).

    Tuesday Night Boat League
    Week 13
    Rich Cooper took top spot on the night with a brace of fish. Rich shared a boat with Hilary Tomlinson who also managed a brace. Chris Binley collected the prize for the biggest fish on the night with a fine 4lb 11oz Rainbow. It’s the second time in three weeks that Chris has netted this prize.
    With three weeks to go, Rich seems to have timed it right, extending his lead.

    Grafham Water
    Fish 339(Season 10,086) Returns 88 (2,301) Rod average 3.85 (3.85)
    Grafham Water has seen some exceptional days over the past week. In particular the predator fishing has been very exciting, with a number of large Pike in the 20lb range caught between the tower and Pig Bay. There also seems to be a good showing of Zander being caught in the deeper areas ahead of the Dam wall. Hopefully we shall see this continue week into the week as we prepare for the Pike Classic on 17 and 18 August. Fingers crossed all anglers involved have a great sporting experience and some large predators caught!

    The dam wall remains the best spot for the bank angler, with the best times to fish being early morning and late evening. On Thursday there were plenty of anglers dotted along the wall enjoying the sport, only remember to stay low or to sit down to avoid spooking the wary fish.
    The west bank by Savages remains a good spot for boat fishermen, as well as by the dam and the Boils. Many good catches were made during the week with fast retrieves and flashy lures.

    Best boat areas: Close to the dam; the west bank past the nature reserve and up to Savages Creek. Straight down the middle. By the tower for Pike.

    Grafham Water continued

    Best bank areas: The dam.

    Mid week boat winner: P Willis.

    Pitsford Water
    Fish 164 (Season 11,674) Returns 56 (2,097) Rod average 2.9(5.6)
    Pitsford Water had a further stocking of 2,000 Exe Valley fish this week, bringing the number stocked up to 21,500 for the season. Once again these were fantastic quality, full finned fish, many weighed at over a kilo with several over 1.25 kg.

    The fishing this week has been mixed with a rod average for the week of 2.9, against a season average of 5.7. That said, some anglers have reported great sport if in the right areas and fishing the right method.
    John Pearson and Ray Rouse proved this by enjoying a great day on the water, catching fifteen fish between them, up to 4lb. They fished floating lines with diawl bachs and bibio patterns and drifts across the main bowl.
    Bob Aves had a great morning fishing a single booby or fab on a floating line, which he stroked through the surface. He said the sport was hectic with fish bow waving behind the fly.

    With conditions settling down this week expect the fish to be up in the water and fish floating lines with confidence.

    Best Rainbow: 4lb taken by Ray Rouse.

    Mid week boat winner: P Watson.

    Fish stocked: 2,000.
