    Rutland Water
    Fish 653 (Season 21,433) Returns 167(4,085) Rod average 3.91 (5.24)
    Rutland Water is fishing extremely well for both bank and boat anglers alike. Anglers are commenting on the quality of fish which is excellent with plenty of food items to feed on especially with the amazing amount of fry and really good numbers of shrimp showing in stomach contents.

    The resident Browns are starting to show again with all the food about with some reports of excellent specimens. Stuart Hume netted a fine 6lb 4½oz fish and Welsh angler Kieran returned two excellent quality fish on Sunday with further fish up to 8lb caught off the bank. Roger Oliver from Sheffield got amongst the Browns later on in the day and returned two with one just under 5lb and the other just under 6lb.

    Boats have fared best down the south arm, with reports of fish being both close in and right out in the open water. Season ticket holders Al Owen and Roger Gill had 16 big fish using the washing line method with nymphs to great effect. The reservoir continues to fish very well with fish being caught throughout the day.

    Tuesday Evening Boat League week 8
    15 anglers did brilliantly to catch 67 fish last week. Chris Evans was top rod (for the third time this year); second was Vince Sparrow and third place went to Keith Jones. Vince also had the biggest fish on the night with a 4lb 13¼oz Rainbow winning him a free mid week boat. Rich Cooper has held on to his league lead, but Keith Jones and Vince Sparrow are not far behind

    Grafham Water
    Fish 257 (Season 8,462) Returns 88 (1,750) Rod average 2.9 (4.8)
    Changeable weather conditions have made the fishing at Grafham a bit slower over the past week. However, anglers are still catching well in the morning and evening and have reported a respectable rod average of 2.9.
    Many anglers have been taking advantage of the warm evenings to fish dry flies with good results. One such angler took twelve fish to 5lb on a quick three hour session. Now that the pin fry are about in abundance small fish patterns and lures fished on an intermediate or floating line are picking up a good stamp of fish with many over wintered fish falling to this method.
    The aerator produced steady action throughout the day for two boats on Thursday with the anglers opting to fish as a team taking turns to drift through it whilst twitching diawl bachs and shrimp patterns.

    Bank fishing is at its best from about 7pm onwards with plenty of good fish being caught along the dam on various patterns and lines. The arms are also producing fish in the mornings and evenings and a dry fly fished into the bay seems to be the way to go. During the coming week as the weather begins to settle down we fully expect the rod average to jump back up and the fish to switch on.

    Best Rainbow: 5lb 4oz.

    Best Brown: 4lb 12oz.

    Best boat areas: Wind dependent – Rainbow Point, L Buoy and M Buoy.

    Best bank areas: The dam (bowl area), the Willows, Fishing Lodge arms.

    Mid week boat winner: Richard Loney of Milton Keynes.

    Pitsford Water
    Fish 208 (Season 10,987) Returns 44 (1,861) Rod average 4.7 (5.9)
    The rod average for the week at Pitsford is an excellent 4.7. Pitsford has again produced some cracking fish with plenty of Rainbows and Browns around the 3½ to 4½lb mark.

    The best methods for both boat and bank are fishing imitative patterns such as damsel, snail, shrimp or pin fry imitations on a floating line. The fish are in the margins or on hotter days they have been around the aerators. If overcast they will come to dries with daddies, hoppers, small midge or cdc’s.

    Malcolm Carter-Guild had a very good day catching Browns of 4lb, 3lb 8oz and 2lb 8oz as well as nine Rainbows. Ray Rouse had a fine Rainbow of 4lb 8oz. Whilst Malcolm Foreman also had a nice Rainbow of 4lb 6oz which was released.

    The best bank areas have been Cliffs, Sailing Club, Pitsford Creek and the Flats.

    Boat anglers are catching fish in the Narrows, Sailing Club Bay and in the Boils and in the basin.

    Throughout July and August the ‘Senior Tuesday’ offer has been extended to Thursdays so why not take advantage of these reduced boat prices.

    Although a quieter week with fewer boats on the water, Ravensthorpe continues to produce good sport with a rod average of 5.5. The best method is to fish dry fly cdc emergers, daddies, snail patterns, black hoppers etc.

    Fish continue to be caught on washing line and a small black booby on the point with crunchers diawl bachs etc.
