Draycote Water  weekly report week ending Sunday 29th June 2014

Telephone Number 01788 812018

The cooler evenings & showery conditions of last week has cooled the surface water temperature with any algae dropping out, with the water clarity this week described as excellent.

Despite there been a huge amount of pin fry this year a good number of trout this week were taken on dries with Sean Hanlon catching 10 trout on a daddy drifting over open water & on Friday evening Mr Pelly taking 6 to dries, daddies & Big Red from Lincroft.

Buzzer & damsels continue to take fish but with the amount of pin fry a silver Invicta, silver thorax pheasant tail or a flash back has also worked.

Anglers fishing the rudder found catches a little slower this week however Lee Henfrey & N Keeber continue to find the rudder working well for them fishing the morning session 8.30am – 3.00pm catching 19 trout.

Paul Beasley caught a 5lb1oz brown, Vince Veronica caught 5 trout for 15lb, J Pearson & J Astley bank fished the evening session recording 14 trout with both anglers recording fish of 4lb. Members Colin England & Tony Plummer recorded 20 fish for their visit. R Hubbard recorded a brown 4lb8oz with R Elkin returning a 4lb+ brown.

Bank anglers have generally found the best of their sport in rainbow corner & Lincroft with boat anglers finding the best sport off Lincroft, Biggin & in front of the outflow although anglers drifting the open water with dries are picking up some cracking fish.

In order to maintain the accuracy of our records could all anglers please ensure that they fill in the catch return sheet before departure.  If not in the lodge it will be found on the counter in the gutting room next door.

Bank Anglers car passes should be, where possible, booked prior to coming fishing as we only have a limited number available.

Boat anglers are also politely reminded of the ruling that there is no anchoring within 100 yards of any pontoon or aerators. This is especially relevant to the harbour pontoon as its own mooring chains & anchors extend out a considerable distance from the end of the harbour & are easily fouled.

Tight lines,
