Fishing update for Draycote water – 17 July 2014.


With the weather being mostly overcast but warm for the last couple of days the fishing has been very good. Two Draycote regulars fishing on Tuesday caught 41 fish from a drifting boat, with rainbows up to 5lb, all on dries such as bob’s bits and shipmans buzzer.

A few good browns have also been caught up to 6lb, yet again on dries.

Lures fished within a couple of feet of the surface are also working very well, in particular, cats whiskers and damsels.

The water clarity is still reasonably good with only a slight algae bloom at one end of the reservoir. 

Rod average 4.8.
