Pitsford Water week ending 19 August

3 months ago

Fish 232 (season 5,790) Returns 55 (1,341) Rod average 4.2 (4.3)

Anglers are enjoying consistent sport at Pitsford Water on a variety of methods. The rod average for the week is 4.2; although we did see it peak at 7.9 at the weekend! The water is gin clear and the fish are hard fighting.

When conditions are overcast then dries are working with daddies, hoppers and bibios proving effective. In brighter conditions then nymphs are taking good numbers of fish with diawls, crunchers and muskins all catching.

In stronger winds then those fishing the rudder with tubes and snakes are catching.

The fish are confined to the main basin with drifts from the dam out into open water best.

There are some better fish being taken from the sailing club frontage, Pines and across the mouth of Pitsford Creek.
