Last week 90 rods caught 365 fish for an average of 4.05 fish per rod

The busiest week of the year so far on the Trout Fishery and most had good fishing with lots of fish moving on the surface providing good top of the water sport.

Two anglers had the largest fish of the week which was a 10lb rainbow, one was caught by fishery regular Rod Lacey of Nuneaton who fished from a boat on Cocks Close and he used his favoured Diawl Bach pattern on a floating line. Ray Ball also had a 10lb rainbow from Cocks Close on a black and green Lure fishing in the Packington Fly Fishers Jubilee Cup and won the competition with a total weight of 19lb 1oz. All eight anglers caught their five fish limits.

Another regular visitor Ian Reeve of Rugby had a 6lb 9oz rainbow in his eight fish bag caught whilst fishing from a boat on Cocks Close and his boat partner Mr M Currall also of Rugby had a 5lb 4oz rainbow in his 11 fish catch with all their fish falling to Montana Nymphs.

Messrs Frost and Gloyns of Coventry shared a boat on the Park Meadow pool and caught 12 fish to 4lb between them with a Gold Head Damsel catching most of their fish.

The best areas have been along the road bank and the wires bank on Cocks Close and there have been fish moving all over Park Meadow but the dam wall is the most productive area.

Hawthorns and olives have been hatching over the pools for days and the fish are coming to these, so CDC Emergers, olive dries and suspender Hawthorn patterns have been catching off the top. Buzzers, Damsels and Bloodworm are also catching a few fish.

A large stocking of rainbows went in during the weekend to guarantee good sport over the next few weeks.

The Fishery is open from 8am until dusk.
