The rod average for the week at Pitsford is a healthy 5.8 with the season average at 6.6.

This week we have again seen large numbers of fish caught in the 3-4lb range with buzzers, diawl bachs and crunchers accounting for the best bags, fished either on floating or midge tip lines.

The small half of the reservoir has fished very well with Duck bank and May Tree Bay holding fish. Fish have also been found in numbers on the Sermons and Holly Tree bank and along the Pines and into Pitsford Creek.
