Tel 01788 812018 Draycote Water Fishery Report Week Ending 6th April
Sport continues to be excellent despite a week in which we experienced some very changeable weather from bright flat calms to very wet, windy & blustery conditions.
Both boat & bank anglers continue to book out some impressive catches & whilst many boat anglers are still catching deep on a variety of lures, those fishing teams of buzzer are starting to enjoy the best of the sport. This was admirably demonstrated by season ticket holder Leigh Cheshire who netted a personal best 9lbs 4oz rainbow on a buzzer nymph. John Mills followed close behind with an 8lbs 4oz rainbow which was part of a twelve fish total taken on size 14 & 16 crunchers off the Hensborough Bank.
Floating lines continue to be best from the bank & very frequently fish have been found patrolling extremely close to the margins. Regular angler Paul Beasley led the way with an 8lbs rainbow that succumbed to a Montana Nymph. Dependant on wind strength& direction all areas have been producing good sport.
Prospects for sustained action, particularly on the buzzer look good. I have just returned from a tour of the bank and the angler’s cars at Dunns Bay are literally covered with black buzzer!
