Pitsford Water week ending 5 July

3 months ago

Fish 768 (Season 3,332) Returns 138 (507) Rod average 5.6 (6.6)

The rod average for the week at Pitsford Water is 5.6 with the changeable weather conditions influencing the fishing.

The bank fishing has slowed slightly, but fish are still being caught on dries or washing line tactics with nymphs or buzzers.  The best areas are Gravels, Sermons and North Farm Bay.

Boat anglers are finding the fishing easier with the majority of fish being taken out in the open water in the main basin. These are much better fish with many reported in the 4lb plus bracket. Tactics for the boats have been varied, from dries or nymphs on floating lines to tubes and snakes on DIY.

Blobs, FABs and boobies suspending nymphs or buzzers on floating or tip lines seem the most consistent method and long drifts from the dam out into open water have been most productive.

Beginners Courses: 12,17 & 25 July; 2,8,14,23 & 28 August and other dates throughout the season. Please call 01780 686441.
