      Rutland Water
      Fish week 2,670 (Season 4,134) Returns 273 (380) Rod average 10.3 (11.12)
      Fishing continues to be outstanding at Rutland Water with yet another week of anglers claiming to have enjoyed ‘Red letter days’ and catches frequently in double figures.
      Boat and bank anglers have found the most productive areas to be in the north arm, especially between Dickenson’s Bay and the Transformer. In the south arm the best area is Sailing Club towards Church Bay. East Creek is worth fishing off the bank too. A few bank anglers have enjoyed sport off the dam when the wind direction allows.

      Buzzers are still the food of choice on a floating line or midge tip, or a bright FAB and buzzers. If the fish are high in the water try crunchers and nymphs. Fish are generally low down in the first half of the day and rising up to the first 3 feet of water in the late afternoon.

      Our lodges are now open in a Covid secure manner for tackle sales. Boat bookings can now be made over the phone and we will take your name and phone number and payment will be taken at the lodge on the day you fish. Customers can also now leave boat booking requests on the answer phone.

      Grafham Water
      Fish week 686 Returns 99 Rod average 6.9
      Anglers are continuing to enjoy some fantastic fishing at Grafham Water. One season ticket holder managed to catch 22 fish in one sitting from the dam wall at the beginning of the week. Boat anglers have also been enjoying good sport with one day ticket angler anchoring in Gaynes Cove and catching and releasing 30 trout that were all safely returned to fight for another day.
      All in all Gaynes Cove is fishing the best for the boat anglers. It is holding a lot of overwintered fish; all of these are hard fighting and aggressive fish providing superb sport. The bay from the fishing lodge to the Sailing Club has been producing the goods for the determined angler willing to stake his bets and stick it out to the end of the day.
      For both bank and boat anglers try either floating line fished washing line style with buzzer, hares ear, cruncher, muskins or diawl bach. Or for something different try a Di3 with black lures or damsels with a figure of eight retrieve, most fish have been taking in the hang.

      Pitsford Water
      Fish week 412 (Season 768) Returns 76(115) Rod average 5.4 (6.7)
      The best fish of the week recorded at Pitsford was a fine 8lb 2oz Rainbow which was safely returned to the water.

      With the continued cold, frosty mornings the trout are still feeding out in open warmer water, making the bank fishing tricky. Once the sun warms the margins the fish will happily come in and feed with some great evening rises.

      From the boats the sport is good throughout the day with the Narrows, Pines and Sailing Club being the most productive areas though the fish are well spread across the lake.

      The buzzer hatches have been incredible with instances of fry carpeting the surface, though the fish are only occasionally taking from the surface when there is cloud cover or in the late afternoon.

      Buzzer patterns are working but with so much natural food available attractor patterns are fishing well, orange blobs or mini lures are working as are small snake patterns.

      Some notable catches this week included one boat angler catching and releasing 25 fish. Two other anglers (brothers) caught 15 fish between them including a 6lb 3oz Brown. One of our regular anglers enjoyed three visits to Pitsford and caught and released 37 trout, plus a lovely 4lb 2oz Perch. One angler had a short afternoon boat session and had 17 fish on straight lined buzzers. This has also been a week with several big Browns estimated at 6lb plus.

      Best Rainbow: 8lb 2oz.

      Best Brown: Several estimated at 6lb plus.

      Ravensthorpe
      Fish week 782 (Season 1,498) Returns 75(121) Rod average 9.5 (8.0)
      Ravensthorpe is still fishing well. Fish are being caught on buzzers and lures all around the reservoir with the Coton End and Island holding plenty of fish.

      The bank is fishing well on the dam.
