    Clatworthy reservoir

    A tough week at Clatworthy as the hot weather continued. Bank anglers are struggling with very few caught. However, boat anglers are doing well considering the conditions. We are seeing a fair few fish rising in the mornings between the lodge and the dam in open water. However, once the sun is up the fish are moving down in the water column. Boat anglers are favouring the Di5-Di7 lines and fishing small nymphs with an attractor on the top dropper. The Dam is holding a lot of fish which are concentrated around the air line and in the bubbles. Again, anglers have been picking them up between 10-20ft deep on sinking lines and small nymphs fished almost static.

    We are seeing many fry holding around the pontoon. It won’t be too much longer before we start to see the trout taking an interest. If you see any fish eruptions near the shore, try a suspended minkie and cast to the commotion. Leave it static and wait for the trout to return and mop up any stunned fry.

    Fred Pike from Chudleigh Devon caught the heaviest fish of the week with a rainbow at 4lb 8oz.
