Peter Proctor landed the best fish of the week at Pitsford Water - a superb 5lb Brown.

Fish 183 (season 10,026) Returns 42 (2,194) Rod average 4.4 (4.6)

Once again Pitsford Water is providing some great fishing with a rod average of 4.4 for the week. There have been many reports of fish between 3-4lb being caught. The best fish of the week was a lovely Brown of 5lb which was caught and released by Peter Proctor.

The fish are now feeding hard on the shrimp in the weed margins and floating lines with nymphs such as hares ear, diawl bach and cruncher are working well. During overcast conditions wet flies, such as invicta and Dunkeld have fished well in the surface.

More fish are due to be stocked this week, taking our total stocked to 29,500. This, combined with the fish just beginning to show signs of fry feeding, means we have some exciting fishing to look forward to in the coming weeks.
