Foremark has continued with some fabulous early season sport, during the last week over 1300 trout were caught! During the week.
On Monday the sailing club bay and Flamingo bay was the area to be with plenty of fish eager to take damsels and black and green lures. Tuesday was a lovely spring day with a slightly overcast day with a light warm breeze, the banks fished well all day but the afternoon was superb with the last four-hour permit being popular and productive. Derby County Angling Club member netting 19 fish on damsels in the morning and buzzers on a floating line in the afternoon. The weather on Wednesday was very bright and calm almost like summer with the temperature going to 17 degrees this did slow the fishing down during the middle part of the day but as the sun became lower in the sky flamingo bay and verdons point came to life. The boats fished better than the banks during the day, being able to access deeper water. Mr T Cook and his boat partner Mr C Cook took 28 fish between them on intermediate lines near Flamingo bay. Mr D Hussey fished from the bank on Thursday and netted 25 fish on a Pittsford pea while Mr P Harding and Mr J Perry took 40 fish to their boat. By Friday the banks and the boats fished well again with damsels doing the business. Buzzers produced the better results on Saturday again round Verdons point and flamingo bay. Derby County Angling Club members Mr P Webb And Mr C Wilkins enjoyed their Sundays fishing netting over 40 fish between them from the banks. Mr G Moody also netted 24 trout and his fishing partner won the bragging rights by netting over30 fish.
Sunday Foremark Fly Fishers held a joint bank and boat match with 13 rods catching a total of 104 fish for a match average of 8.
Six rods fishing from a boat and 7 fishing from the bank, the bank produced the more consistent better weights with the overall winner being Mr Dave Steer with a weight of 16lbs 11oz for 8 fish, he also caught the biggest fish being 3lbs 8oz.
