Rutland Water week ending 21 April

Rutland Water is in great form

Anglers are catching huge bags of fish from many areas of the reservoir.

Sheffield angler Bob Copsey had a good day’s boat fishing which included a specimen 6lb 4oz Brown. Howard Watson who held the Rutland Brown trout record for the 1981 season made a successful return to Rutland. Howard followed Nigel Savage’s advice and had a great day’s boat fishing in Dickenson’s Bay. Howard had lost none of his touch and returned to the harbour with a cracking 5lb 1oz overwintered Rainbow.

The warmer evenings have seen the fish moving later on with dry fly accounting for one or two fish.

The Tuesday Night Boat League starts on 7 May.
An enjoyable evening, open to all from 5pm with boats away at 6pm. Boat partners will be drawn from a hat. The evening concludes with a fish and chip supper and the prize for the best fish on the night is a free mid week boat.
