Pitsford Water week ending 16 September

3 years ago

Fish 1,044 (Season 8,368) Returns 167 (1,800) Rod average 6.3 (4.65)

It has been another fantastic week on Pitsford Water with a rod average for the week of 6.3 with many double figure bags and plenty of anglers commenting on the quality and fight of the fish.

Among the many notable catches were Mr Peat from Bedfordshire who caught and released 15 fish. Mr McGuire had fish of 4lb, 3lb 8oz and two at 3lb in his eight fish bag. Pat Traynor from County Donegal had fourteen fish, all returned. Mick and David O’Farrell caught and released twenty nine fish.

Fish are now spread throughout the main reservoir and there is a good number of fish in Stone Barn and down the Northfields shore. Fish are now targeting the shrimp in the margins along the Gravels and Cliffs and bank anglers are catching good fish in these areas.

Boat anglers are catching high in the water with dries working well or in brighter conditions try washing line tactics on floater or midge tip lines.
