Tenacity is paying off

ThE week at Carsington Fishery has again showed some interesting conditions for fishing with quite a few windy days for anglers to cope with.

This hasn’t stopped many anglers getting out there on the water and their tenacity has paid off with very few blanking.

The conditions have meant a slight change in the fishing methods as less fish are being caught on buzzers and more catches on lures.

The rod average for the week was 7.0 with 632 fish caught by 91 anglers.  

The best rainbow of 4lb 4oz was caught by E Caley using a damsel.

The best brown of the week was caught by A Baggaley, weighing 2lb 8oz, using a small black lure

A lot of the fish have been sheltering around the features of the reservoir for this week’s top spots.

Popular catch areas have been Tower Bank, North Island, Millfileds and especially Upperfields Bay and Shiningford Creek.

There has been a real mixture of sinking and floating lines with the usual black and green patterns of Montana, some buzzers and crunchers.

Also, orange blobs, tadpoles and cats whiskers have been the chosen lures.

As the evenings are staying lighter for longer, fishing in the evening is now available.

Permits can be purchased from 5pm but please remember the reception closes at 6pm.
