Monthly Fishery Report

April 2017

April has always been an excellent month for fishing at Rockbourne and it hasn’t been any different this time around, in fact there have been well over 1000 fish caught this month!! There was a good mix of Rainbows, Blues, Browns, Arctic Char and Tiger Trout caught and a fair number of double figure Rainbows. The fishery is looking beautiful with the vegetation all looking very lush and green: a truly wonderful time of the year to be out fishing!

As previously stated the sport has been exceptional but I have listed a few of the highlights in the following. Colin Farley had a superb month taking Rainbows of 9lb 8oz and 10lb 8oz on separate trips, David Truran caught his first Tiger, Mr Newman caught an 11lb Rainbow, Bob Lewis caught Two tigers and Browns to 6lb, Harry Roger fished with us just to catch a Tiger, which he did,  and young Oliver landed a 10lb 4oz Rainbow! Mr Taylor tempted a 7lb Rainbow, Mark Roll bagged a brace of Tigers, Mr Seabright caught an 8lb 8oz Rainbow, Richard Johnson caught an immaculate 10lb 4oz Rainbow and season rod Roger Edwards had an 8lb 4oz Rainbow. Dr Yule caught his first Tiger Trout, Fred Brown had a fantastic afternoon when he caught an 8lb 4oz Rainbow, Arctic Char and Tiger Trout, Mr Marsh also tempted an Arctic Char and Mark Roll, Tony Roll, Me Newey, Mr Palmer and Kieron all caught Tiger Trout on the same day! Katie is new to fly fishing and caught a Tiger Trout and a magnificent 10lb Rainbow, I think it will be a while before she beats that! Patrick landed an 11lb Rainbow, season rod Mr Rothwell caught a 5lb 7oz Brown, Mr Boyd caught a 6lb Rainbow, John Jay had a personal best 7lb Rainbow and season rod Graham Witt had a brace of Tigers. Mike Smith caught a 10lb Rainbow, Mr McGrindle landed a 11lb Rainbow and Rory Johnston caught a personal best 11lb 8oz Rainbow from Alder Lake on a damsel nymph.

Also a reminder to you all that we have another fishing competition on Saturday 13th May, further details can be found on the website.

Natural and imitative patterns are taking most of the fish now we are well in to the spring. As usual the most consistent pattern seems to be an olive damsel nymph with the blue flash variety proving particularly effective. Montanas are also scoring well, probably due to the abundance of tadpoles in the water. GRHE’s, PTN’s, stonefly and mayfly nymphs and buzzers are also taking lots of fish. The fish are also rising very well with emerger type patterns, suspender buzzers, daddys and mayflys taking many fish.

That’s all for this month but keep an eye on our Facebook page for up to date catches and information about the Fishery
