Rutland Water week ending 3 April

2 months ago

Rod average 4.48 (Season 7.07)

The weather this week did a complete U-turn, with temperatures ranging from 20°C plus and warm sunshine to single figures and snow!!

The variable weather didn’t help the fishing and for the first part of the week the fish were not really showing, but as the week progressed the fish settled down and began to feed again.

Fish were found along the Normanton bank and from the Monument to the dam off Sykes Lane. Dickenson’s to Barnsdale Creek also harboured fish.

Buzzers were the food of choice with spooned fish also feeding on bloodworm.

With the winter restrictions now lifted it seems that the Brownies got the memo too with a 6lb returned from the boats. Season ticket holder Len Francis tempted a 6lb 8oz Brown from the bank with his own variety of buzzer.

Fish stocked: 2,167

A reminder for season ticket key holders that the gate locks were changed on 2 April. For more informatio please ask at the Fishing Lodge.
