Draycote Water Fishing Report Friday 1st September 2023

Posted by & filed under Reports.

A fairly calm, overcast day on Friday with just enough breeze for the occasional ripple. This summers weather has been genuinely kind to us with steady fishing throughout , and Friday was no exception, with the western end of the reservoir features heavily on the catch returns. Mr G Day and Mr A Pierce caught 3 fish between them from the bank using fry patterns such as minkies. Ruth and Tony Kirk had 4 fish to the boat between them using humungus and gold ribbed hares ears. Ian Reeve and Cian Lewis netted a dozen fish on crippled midge, blobs and diawl bachs. Stuart Lee and Eddie Mitchell caught 16 fish on dries and lures fished on a midge tip. Season permit holder Ray Rawlings caught half a dozen fish using a washing line and cormorants drifting around A buoy and in Rainbow Corner. Mr K Bowen and Mr D Botterill used FAB’s to net 18 fish between them from a drifting boat.
