BEWL WATER FISHERY WEEKLY REPORT week ending: 27th June 2013
Judging by the hits I am getting from over 50 countries a lot of you are interested in what is happening at Bewl Water. So here is the latest fishing report.
"Water temperature 16degC Water level 94%.
Over 900 Blues of 2-3lbs and 200 rainbows of 2lbs were stocked this week.
After a few days of difficult fishing, things have started to improve . The fish are still in the top 3 or 4 feet of the water and feeding on fry, daphnia, sedge and damsels. Best areas for boat fishing are close to the Dam, Monty's Seat to Dunsters end of Hook Straight and the Cages.
Bank fishing is becoming more difficult as the water warms up. Bramble Point and Ferry Point are the best places to try. Successful flies have been Green Buzzers, Blobs, Boobies, Cormorants and Damsels.
The second heat of the South East FF Qualifier took place on Sunday 23 June. 27 anglers caught 53 trout giving a rod average of 1.89.The winner was Gilliam Vermeulen with 7 fish weighing in at 14lb 15oz. Overall winner of the 2 heats was Vince Brooks. The top 7 anglers will compete in the National Final at Grafham Water in September."
Vince Brooks is a splendid fellow and obviously an excellent fisher. Well done Vince!
