Draycote Water Fishing Report Saturday 14th October 2023

Posted by & filed under Reports.

Light breezes with sporadic cloud cover on Saturday morning made for reasonable conditions out on Draycote Water. To be fair the fishing wasn’t easy on Saturday and this showed up in the rod average which had dropped to 3.8. Slow through the early part of the day, anglers were picking fish up on tequila blobs and humungus fished on intermediate lines. Season permit holder Paul Walley fished at various locations around the bank and netted 5 fish on cormorants and white snakes. Mr Steve Proffitt caught 4 fish from the bank at Lincroft Point using humungus as well as dries such as bob’s bits. Out on the boats young Jon Crowley used blobs on a fast glass to net 7 fish near M buoy. Mark Goodge and Sean Higgins had 11 fish to the boat using snakes on sinking lines from various areas of the reservoir. Tim Burn and Paul Mitchell caught 14 fish from a drifting boat in the top few feet of the water column using a washing line with crunchers as well as dries. Draycote regular Mr J McVay caught 5 fish on nemo crunchers and diawl bachs  from Rainbow Corner and Biggin Bay.
