Pitsford Water week ending 11 July

1 year ago

Fish week 217 (Season 7,642) Returns 45 (1,167) Rod average 4.8 (6.5)

Pitsford has fished to a rod average of 4.8 this week. The changing weather conditions have called for changes in tactics. When overcast the fish will respond well to dries. In bright, sunny conditions the fishing is more challenging. The fish have not gone deep, but a slow intermediate or neutral density line and nymphs is the best approach in these conditions. 

The best areas to try are the Narrows, Main Basin, Dam and Small Half.  Dries such as Big Red, Midas, Crippled Midge and Bob’s Bits are all working.  Foam Daddies will catch, as will small Diawl Bachs fished on a washing line. If the wind gets up then fishing lures on intermediate lines will catch.
