Grafham Water week ending 19 July

3 weeks ago

Fish 894 Returns 156 Rodaverage 5.1

Another fantastic week at Grafham with our ranger team struggling to remember a better seven days of fishing. A number of our anglers told us they had over thirty fish in one session. Fishermen of all abilities have been enjoying fantastic sport here, maintaining Grafham’s reputation as a premier venue.

For those who favour the dry fly there has been no better time than now, with countless reports of good fish being taken all the way from Savages along Hill Farm and the Stumps. The water being warm has created a lot of weed along these stretches, the best method being a slow drift pulling back hoppers or big reds over the top of the weed, this can be frustrating fishing as if you’re not careful you will snag the weed, but if you keep it up you will find that the fish are feeding in amongst the weed and will rise to the fly. This being the case anglers have been enjoying some wonderful sight fishing. The Seat and Gaynes Cove have also been producing high quality fish with impressive tails that fight like demons when hooked.

Bank fishing has seen some great results, with one angler finishing the week with 56 fish. The dam wall has been producing along with Plummers and the Harbour Arms, if you struggle with the dries revert to a washing line using something small like a hares ear.

Beginners Courses: 31 July; 9,15,21 & 29 August; 13,18 & 24 September and other dates throughout the season. Please call lodge on 01480 810531.
