Last weeks hot weather slowed the fishing markedly especially for bank anglers. A few boat anglers did well by fishing deeper down the middle. 5 anglers from Lincolnshire police fished on Thursday when the water was still very warm and did extremely well to catch 31 fish with Tony Gill winning easily with 18 fish.
Alan Rennocks didn’t let the hot weather deter him and caught a total of 38 fish in 3 boat trips.
The cooler weather is finally helping the bank fishing with the first signs of life on Monday this week. Colin Ashpole 7, Paul Laundon 7 and Brian King 10 all did well with most fish taking dries.
The continuing lower temperatures and a double stocking this week should keep sport lively.
