FISHING: Great week’s sport at Clatworthy
8:00am Sunday 18th May 2014 in Sport
HAWKRIDGE Reservoir is still fishing well with most anglers catching on dry or intermediate lines.
Fish are being taken on various patterns depending on the conditions. Suspended Buzzer patterns are working well on bright days, especially in the afternoon or evening.
When the sky is overcast, fish are found nearer the surface taking Damsels and Black or Brown Nymphs.
Martin Mannell landed the best fish of the week, a very nice 9lb rainbow.
ANOTHER great week at Clatworthy with 145 anglers taking 429 fish at a rod average of 2.9.
The best bag limit went to B.
Lovelace weighing 17lb 12oz and D.
Francis had a five fish limit weighing 16lb.
Best fish of the week was a 5lb rainbow caught by Mr Sollors. The best brown of the week was a 4lb 2oz landed by A. Norris.
Fish were taken all over the lake by boat and bank. Most fish were taken on wet patterns using intermediate lines but when the conditions were right, floating lines with buzzer patterns worked really well.
With the weather set to stay similar, the fishing will remain the same with the bank up into Rowes End fishing very well, and the boats drifting in the bays.
