Draycote has continued in rich form this past few days with some truly outstanding fish being caught. This last week alone we have seen 5 fish caught weighing between 8 and 12lb !!
Rod Wilson, a regular visitor who fishes the rudder, took one fish to 12lb(returned) and another fish of 8lb on the same day. Mr Denney also recorded a fantastic day with two fish over 7lb.
It appears we have seen the back of the cold weather, the fish have now moved up in the water and are readily on the feed. Rainbow corner, renowned for its prolific buzzer fishing, is in top form with reports of some big fish moving in in the evenings.
The bank is still producing very good rod averages, as a below normal water temperature is still keeping a good head of fish close to the margins.
The boats are experiencing some excellent sport both on lures and on some occasions buzzers(when conditions allow).
With this weekends weather looking superb for fishing, those who do visit Draycote Water I would predict to have some fantastic sport !!
Best flies – black buzzers down to size 14, Diawl Bachs, Blobs, boobies, Pitsford Pea, Goldhead damsels, and goldhead variants
