GRAFHAM

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Fishing Reports -

MANY FISH are now be­ing taken on lures fished on Di5 and Di7 lines. The most suc­cess­ful area for this method is across the mid­dle of the lake. Ef­fec­tive flies have been black Snakes, tubes, Hu­mungous and Cat’s Whisker. Closer to the shore, boat an­glers are hav­ing suc­cess with nymphs fished on float­ing and midge-tip lines. Fish are feed­ing hard on very small chi­rono­mid nymphs. The best ar­eas for boats fish­ing this method are A buoy – near the south end of the dam – and Plum­mer bank. Pig Bay, Rec­tory Bay and Py­lon Point are suc­cess­ful drifts on the north shore. Bank-fish­ing has been best in the early morn­ing and late evening. Some big fish have been seen chas­ing roach fry around the har­bour arms – an ever-pop­u­lar spot which has ex­pe­ri­enced con­sid­er­able an­gling pres­sure but pro­duced some very good re­sults. The Seat on the south shore has proved pop­u­lar, many fish be­ing caught af­ter a long cast of 25 yards. The dam wall is now pro­duc­ing fish af­ter a pro­longed quiet spell and, with the warmer weather, I have no­ticed a con­sid­er­able num­ber of our in­va­sive shrimp on the move. The fish will soon in­crease their in­ter­est in this food source. The rod average has been a very healthy 4.6 fish per re­turn.
