Weekly Report Week ending 14th June 2015
As we near the longest day our water temperature is unusually cool for the time of year at around 16.5degrees we would normally expect it to be pushing 18 degrees or above. Not that were complaining the cooler water has kept any algae bloom at bay currently we are enjoying gin clear water conditions with the cooler 16 degree water temperature ideal, perfect for trout to be in the top of the water feeding heavily on massive hatches of small green midge, buzzer, caenis, sedge & in the past few days damsel.
Anglers report every day of seeing large numbers of trout sipping off the surface, although these may not always be easy to tempt their not uncatchable it just requires a slightly different approach.
Mark Hunt went for the tapered leader down to the lowest breaking strain he dared, trimmed his smallest suspender buzzer down and promptly caught 10 trout, Trevor Pegg used his small black cruncher and small damsel to catch 11 for his visit, Mike Cupitt fished a morning session with buzzers to record 6 trout.
Fish at times are moving all over the reservoir including the arms although the most productive area is in front of the Dam, Green Bay, Stones & mouth of the Markfield Arm.
