Fish week 2,293 (Season 19,608) Returns 275 (2,415) Rod average 8.33 (8.11)
Bank anglers are experiencing superb sport on dry fly, especially in the evenings with fish moving close in. We are seeing good quality specimens to 5lb plus. Nymphs are still working as well with fish feeding on buzzer, large and small.
John Glanfield from Devon celebrated his 90th birthday at Rutland in true style marking the occasion with his 43rd consecutive visit. John has fished at Rutland every season since the fishery opened.
One of our season ticket holders recorded a personal best fish of 6lb – a superb Rainbow from the bank. This lovely fish fell to a dry fly late in the evening.
There are noticeable signs of bream and roach shoals coming in to spawn. Expect a lot of active surface action along with the fly hatches in the next few weeks.
There are some Mayfly showing with the spinners doing their dance in areas like the fishing lodge and the Normanton area of the reservoir.
We anticipate excellent sport in many areas – expect to see pin fry feeders showing in the next couple of weeks. Water clarity is very good.
Fish stocked: 2,500.
