Draycote Water Fishing Report Saturday 21st October 2023

Posted by & filed under Reports.

Saturday dawned overcast with a light northerly breeze. The rod average turned out to be 4.5, and what a great day to be out on the water. There were some good returns from all 4 corners of the reservoir and on a wide variety of methods and patterns. Young Mike Garner had a brace from the bank during a morning session on cormorants at Lincroft Point. Mark Hunt caught 8 fish from the bank on dries such as daddies and big reds, from various points along the northern shoreline. Ed Douglas used white minkies off the Farborough Dam early in the day, before fishing a washing line and crunchers through the afternoon to net a dozen fish from a drifting boat. Jon Crowley caught 7 fish on cormorants fished on a slow intermediate line. Jons’ best drift was from D to Y buoy across the line of the aerators. Visiting anglers Tim Grove and John Smith used a mixture of dries and lures to net 18 fish between them. Tim commented that one of the best drifts was from the old pipe out across Biggin Bay.
