Re: Ravensthorpe w/e/ 16/7/17

Ravensthorpe Reservoir
Fish 177 (season 9,262) Returns 44 (1,333)Rod average 4.0(6.9)
The best bag at Ravensthorpe this week went to Dave Naylor and his regular boat partner Steve. The pair took 21 fish, fishing dries from a drifting boat on a very windy Friday.

Fish continue to be top side at Ravensthorpe. The best methods are dries fished from a drifting boat. Claret hoppers, shipmans buzzers, cdc hares ear, cdc olive emergers. Washing line still working.

Anglers are catching fish from the bank, although wading is necessary due to weed growth. Fish are now being caught from the dam, the water level is down so watch the wall.

Ravensthorpe Reservoir

Anglers have enjoyed some good fishing this week with better weather conditions and a cooler water temperature. Doug Wibley and Mr Joy started the week off with 4 fish each on cormorants and shipmans buzzers. Mick O’Farrell had 6 fish one evening on dries. A settled period of weather will see further improvements. The bank is still fishable, but waders are a must.

An Osprey flew over the reservoir on Wednesday.

Would let you know if they allowed tubing at a normal price but for the last few years the grabbing idiots charge £10 launch fee so do not use the place anymore
