Draycote’s current sparkling form has continued beyond the weekend as Mr Griffiths has today weighed in 8 fish just under 24lb from the bank, with the biggest weighing 4lb 4oz. The fish were all taken on size 14 buzzers from the Cornfields area of the lake. Yesterday, several anglers also had their bag limits from the bottom of Toft Shallows, again on small Olive buzzers.
Boats have also done very well, with fish being taken all across the lake. Another Scottish contingent this week, are catching well on a size 12 Yellow Owl cdc dries, as well as buzzers. The fish are very close to the shores and are full of Corixa. Those fish caught further out from the bank are filling themselves with the abundance of daphnia present in the water.
Both bank and boats are fishing exceptionally well at the moment with all areas of the lake producing some cracking fish. Driving is permitted around the lake so access to the best fishing areas is easy for the bank anglers. Demand for the boast is currently high, so please do call in advance to check availability.
