Trout fishery report (week ending 10/12/17)

Last week there were 27 rods caught 179 fish for an average of 6.63.

Up until the cold weather the fishery was in superb form with both Cocks Close and Park Meadow fishing very well.

The biggest fish of the week was a 10lb rainbow caught by Harold Lewis of Knowle who was fishing from a boat on Cocks Close and he took it on a Damsel Nymph fished on a floating line, it was the best of an eight fish bag with the other fish being caught on black and green Lures and Bloodworm patterns. Mr Matthews of Redditch caught and returned 12 fish with one fish estimated at 9lb fishing from a boat on Cocks Close. Harold Pritchett of Atherstone fished from a boat on Park Meadow and he caught and returned a total of 20 fish including samples estimated at 6lb 8oz and 5lb and these fell to a mixture of Damsel Nymphs and orange and white Lures.

The fish on Cock Close have been showing on the top and the old boat jetty corner to the far corner has been the hotspot. On Park Meadow, the shallow water to the left of the boat jetty has been best but the fish are well spread on there.

Pulling Lures such as Cats Whisker, black Tadpole, big Damsels, Minkies and Fritz Lures has been the best tactic on both pools.

As this report is being written there is a large amount of snow around the fishery and for the short term it is best to ring to see what local conditions are like before setting out.
