Draycote Water Fishing Report Saturday 5th August 2023

Posted by & filed under Reports.

Sunday was a very wet and windy day here at Draycote water. The wind strengthened as the day progressed and changed into a northerly bringing with it some quite heavy showers through the afternoon. Those anglers who braved the elements had a good day out,  catching good numbers of fish right across the breadth of the reservoir. John Crowley drifted from the Flat Stones to the Valve Tower, netting 9 fish using a midge tip and foam daddies. Season permit holder Mike Garner ventured out onto the bank to catch half a dozen fish using cormorants, bibios and kate mclarens. Mike tried several different areas before settling for Greys barn down in Toft. Nicholas Hollingshead bank fished near the Valve Tower and netted 6 fish on lures and buzzers. Draycote regular Will Hunt ventured out onto the bank for a last 4 hour session. Will netted a brace from the old pipe tucked in out of the wind on the north shore.  Invicta Fly Fishers took to the water with a total of 26 anglers and in rough conditions produced a competition rod average of 8.0. More details to follow.
