Draycote Water Fishing Report Friday 4th August 2023

Posted by & filed under Reports.

A bright and breezy start on Friday morning saw Draycote once again produce good returns for all concerned. A lot of the fish seemed to have moved over the shoals with Musborough in particular fishing very well on the washing line or dries. Some anglers are taking fish on the larger floating fry patterns, but this seems to occur more on the Draycote Dam wall and near the inlet in Rainbow Corner. Season permit holder Craig Middleton used grunters to net well over 20 fish from a drifting boat over Y buoy and Musborough Shoal. Young Ed Douglas used various dry fly patterns such as crippled midge and cul’s to net a good number of fish over open water. Chris Bobby and Leanne Frost had over 20 fish to the boat between them drifting over A, M, N and Y buoy. Debbie and Sean Gilbert used buzzers and diawl bachs to net a bakers dozen between them from the Draycote Dam and commented on “A Great Day”.
