August Fishing Report 2021
After a very warm June and July which always proves to be tough fishing, the trout are now on the move from the darker, cooler water and are back feeding, providing some good fishing again. The best bag went to Ken Holroyd with a catch of 11 fish weighing in at 25lb on one visit, then 5 fish with a weight of 10lb and 5 fish at 9 ½ lb. Steve caught 5 rainbows with a total weight of 14lb including a 4lb rainbow caught deep using a slow sinking line and buzzers. K Gallagher had a bag of 6 fish at 14lb. Steve Wilde with 8 fish at 12 lb. Heaviest fish also goes to Ken Holroyd with a 4 ¼lb brown closely followed by Steve with a 4lb rainbow.
A very hot and sunny June made fishing conditions tough as the water temperature rose and the trout went off feeding and headed for the deeper and cooler water to escape the heat and the sun. Despite these difficult conditions there was some good catches using buzzers and dry flies. Early mornings and evenings seemed the ideal time to fish as the temperature and sun dropped the fishing came alive.
Well done to Steve Price who caught a monster 12lb rainbow, Mike Palfery had a bag of 8 caught on buzzers with the heaviest fish being 4lb. Mike Collins had a bag of 9 also with the heaviest being 4lb caught on a daddy. Steve Wilde had a bag of 6 and 4 on damsels and buzzers. Steve from Tenbury had a bag of 5 caught on buzzers with the heaviest also being 4lb.
