Update for Easter

Posted by & filed under Reports.

Draycote Water remains in hot form, despite the cold weather. With a rod average still over 10, the lake continues to fish all over. The banks have produced some outstanding catches, with many over wintered fish being caught. Peter Elliot has today had in excess of 40 fish off the bank – I even managed one with 1 cast of his rod !!

The boats, those that have braved the extreme conditions, have also done exceptionally well. John Hoskins, accustomed to the cold, has today been out and taken over 30 fish, 9 of which he said were over wintered “beauties”. John was fishing a sinking line and a hot coral Mini Bite booby(flash attack flies). His partner, fishery staff member, Kevin Hart had 16 fish on nymphs.

With the weather now looking more favourable this weekend, albeit still below the seasonal norm, the Easter breaks weather looks promising for a good days fishing.

Best areas have been all parts of the lake, and the best flies have been gold head damsels, Pitsford Peas, boobies, and blobs.
