With the sun for the next few weeks at its strongest strength its not surprising to see a rise in the water temperature, for most of this week weave opened to a water temperature of 18+c.
Morning session 8.00am to 3.00pm has fished best with the evening session generally patchy, moving one evening, not the next. We are seeing at times large hatches of caenis.
Monday overcast conditions G England caught 8 from the bank opposite the lodge and past lonesome pine, Andy Lilley boat fished a morning session catching 7 trout wit J Scott boat fishing the deeper channel
Of the Markfield arm with a DI5 small black snake, cruncher and buzzers to catch 32 trout.
Tuesday, Bill Stone bank fished catching 8 trout, Carl Bond fished the late evening with buzzer and orange blob to take his 5 trout.
Wednesday and a better day K Greaves & T Devonshire caught 9, P Hunt and J Thomson fished buzzers for their morning session catching 13, Colwick fly fishers fished the evening session generally finding it difficult except for K Saxton who fished buzzers deep to catch 10 trout
Morning session continued to be the most productive session during Thursday and Friday with T Miles catching 6 on damsel patterns & P Moore fishing buzzers and diawls to catch his 6 trout with Peter Wrigley & R Dunster boating 10 between them on buzzers for their mornings visit. Keith Coley & John Bebbington found the winning method with fabs fished deep to catch 20 fish between them, drifting out of the Markfield arm into the main basin.
Saturday and the forecast heat arrived with the anglers out in the morning before the full heat of the day finding the fish, P Mee caught 6 on buzzer and blob, D Mee caught 8 with Lee Henfrey taking a day off from his fishery ranger and guiding duties to fish the morning session at Thornton catching 27 fishing buzzers initially off a 12ft midge tip before changing to a DI7 and snakes.
Sunday and a cooler cloudier day, the morning session fished best once again, P Mee returned for another session catching 11 trout, P Hunt & J Thomson returned for their second visit of the week fishing black & red buzzers deep to boat 19 trout.
Best area is the deeper channel located in the middle of the Markfield arm, in front of the stones & across towards the buoys.
