Fish week 1,472 Returns 140 Rood average 10.5
Boat fishing at Grafham has never been so good! The slow ease into the warmer season has forced the fish out into deeper water, the usual weed and food stuffs that we would expect close in has not yet appeared. Although the temperature has been cold, when the sun has been shining and the wind speed has been agreeable drifting with a large flashy lure such as a humungus has been accounting for some fantastic sport. For the traditionalist try a buzzer on a dropper and fish static, this has been working well close in on the south shore by L buoy.
There has been a definite drop in the quality of fishing for the bank angler, compared to last week the bank has become a hard slog. Anglers are still catching the odd fish from the harbour arms, however the dam and elsewhere has dramatically slowed.
With a total of 1,472 fish caught this week we would estimate that at least 90% have been caught by the boat angler. One angler’s return had a total of 41 fish caught and released from on afternoon’s fishing, the biggest being a 5lb rainbow! It’s challenging work but well worth the outlay if you want to make the most of the great trout fishing at Grafham, so book a boat and get out there!
