Grafham Water week ending 17 April

1 month ago

Rod average 5.3 

Grafham has had its busiest week of the season so far and those that visited haven't been disappointed. The catch returns show that a lot of anglers achieved their limit and fished on, returning some very impressive numbers to live to fight another day. 

The TEFF qualifier was held on Friday and it wasn’t a Good Friday it was a great Friday! 50 anglers took to the water and nearly all achieved their eight fish limits. Those that chose to fish against the clock were very quick to achieve their target, bagging up on stockies, but these anglers were out fished by those who were patient, catching the bigger fish. 

Now the better weather has returned and the wind has eased, the fish have responded, with the best methods being blobs and fabs using an intermediate line. The jetty at Marlow Bay has produced some fantastic stocked fish action. 

There continues to be a lot of fly activity around the site so those who love nothing better than fishing a team of buzzers on a floating line have had fabulous sport. The hot spots being Gaynes Cove, the south corner of the dam and the Willows. Very early morning sessions on the Dam have also been very successful and now the school holidays are over, set your alarms, head out early and bag up – don't forget to finish fishing on the dam by 09.00. 

Best Rainbow: 7lb. 

Fish stocked to date: 20,500.
