Fish week 2,670 (Season 4,134) Returns 273 (380) Rod average 10.3 (11.12)

Fishing continues to be outstanding at Rutland Water with yet another week of anglers claiming to have enjoyed ‘Red letter days’ and catches frequently in double figures.

Boat and bank anglers have found the most productive areas to be in the north arm, especially between Dickenson’s Bay and the Transformer. In the south arm the best area is Sailing Club towards Church Bay. East Creek is worth fishing off the bank too. A few bank anglers have enjoyed sport off the dam when the wind direction allows.

Buzzers are still the food of choice on a floating line or midge tip, or a bright FAB and buzzers. If the fish are high in the water try crunchers and nymphs. Fish are generally low down in the first half of the day and rising up to the first 3 feet of water in the late afternoon.
