Grafham Water week ending 4 October

Fish 325 Returns 65 Rod average 5.0

Grafham Water continues to fish well for those who are willing to put the work in. The variable weather which included some rather extreme winds and wind direction have played havoc with any form of standard technique, with the tactics needing to be changed throughout the day in order to hook the fish.

For the boat anglers the two best spots at the moment are the entrance to Savages and the whole of Gaynes Cove and around A buoy. These areas are undoubtedly holding fish although getting them to bite has been tricky, Savages has been working well high up in the water even daddies have been working well. A buoy requires determination and constant changing of tactics, they are being very finicky with their feeding habits. Of course don’t forget to try G Buoy if you are struggling the fish have been caught there closed in by the bank anglers.

Bank anglers have been enjoying the newly opened spaces and swims that the rangers and volunteers have been working hard at developing over the past few months. Pylon Point, Deep Water Point, the Seat and Hill Farm have all been extensively cut back creating far better bank fishing opportunities, so get out there and have a go.
