Pitsford's 6.2 rod average is down to some terrific buzzer hatches.

Fish 608 (season 2057) Returns 97 (365)Rod average 6.2(5.6)

Anglers have enjoyed another cracking week at Pitsford Water with a rod average of 6.2 for the week. This is thanks to the continuing huge buzzer hatches, we are seeing some of the large black buzzers coming off now and the fish are continuing to gorge on them. As with last week, bank sport can be tricky during the middle of the day as the fish move out of reach. This has benefitted boat anglers who have enjoyed the best of the action.

Invicta FFC paid a visit last Tuesday for one of their boat league matches. 20 Anglers fished with 14 catching their limit. Most anglers caught on buzzer and diawl bachs. The best areas were Pig Stream, Gorse, Duffers and Stone Barn. By far the top boat on the day was Keith Gilchrist and Mack Facey. The pair reported catching over 60 fish.

There have been plenty of fish in the 3-4lb bracket with anglers commenting on the quality of the stock fish.

Best boat areas                          Causeway, Coton Car Park.

Best bank areas                         Platforms 11 and 12.

Mid week boat winner               Paul Southgate of Guilsborough.
