Eyebrook Reservoir
Weekly report ending 02/04/2017
Tel: 01536 772930

Weekly Rod Average: 12.55 Fantastic!!!!!!!!

Eyebrook has continued to fish very well from both the boat and bank.The wind changed direction from north east to a warmer south west on Tuesday allowing bank anglers to fish the Leicester bank. Conditions are looking good for the week ahead with warm westerly winds forecast and overcast for much of the week.
As is common for early seasonthe banks are fishing extremely well, with fish gorging on corixa and buzzers close to the margins. Season ticket holder Bill Stewart and Roger Carlton fished from the Belle to the Old Road catching fish all day in which ever spot they moved too. Bill commended on how close the fish were in the margin, meaning there certainly wasn’t any need to wade. Both anglers returned twenty plus fish. Mr P Hurren and Mr I Peaston made their first trip of the season and were delighted with their day’s sport. Boat fishing a team of buzzers, diawlbachs and other nymphs they netted thirty fish a piece, resulting in a hard-fought tie between the two anglers at the end of the day. Draycote warden Tom Bird had a change of scenery and spent his day off work at the Eyebrook constantly catching fish on a washing line set up, consisting of black buzzers and a foam arsed blob on the point. Ian Jobe got away from the crowds and fished the chestnut tree. Catching around thirty fish on dial bachs and buzzers.
James Vasey and Geoff Curry made the trip south once again and made the most of our three-day special permit (details on our website www.flyfisheyebrook.co.uk). They boat fished at Pollards jump on their first day catching around thirty fish between them including three lovely overwintered specimens. The best went to 5lb 7oz and was safely returned to fight another day. The wind was stronger on Thursday and Friday meaning the wood bank was a little rough so Geoff and James took shelter in Norris **** and caught very well on a team of very small black buzzers.
David Davis enjoyed a Sunday afloat the Eyebrook with his son Dan. Dan was top rod of the day catching thirteen fish beating his father’s poor effort of only managing ten! Well done Daniel!
Best bank areas this week have been The Hawthorn hedge, Badger Point, dam wall and the Island. Small buzzers fished either washing line or under a bung, have been the most successful methods. As for the boats it’s been a lot more spread out. The Point, Pollards, Sams **** and The cow Shed are all holding a lot of fish at the moment. Fishing close to the margins anchored has been working the best
