Draycote Water Fishing Report Wednesday 23rd August 2023

Posted by & filed under Reports.

Wednesday was overcast with a light breeze to start with and brightened up as the day progressed. The water quality is pretty good overall, with a little colour at the windward end of the reservoir, which doesn’t seem to effect the fishing too much. As seems to be the standard this season, anglers can be seen catching fish in bright sunshine either on dries or on a washing line just below the surface. On a visit from Canada, Stuart Lee had a great day out netting 11 fish on dries as well as the washing line on a midge tip. Stuart fished near the out of bounds markers on the Hensborough Bank as well as in Rainbow Corner. Ed Douglas and Kevin Rees had a bakers dozen apiece on dries such as crippled midge, bob’s bits and the F fly. Alex Campbell had half a dozen good fish during a morning session, one of which weighed roughly 4 lbs 7oz.  Alex used a DI7 line and a mini tube fly around the Dive Platforms and the front of the Valve Tower.
