Stocks Report 15th-21st July
Another good week comes to an end with anglers catching well from bank and boat.
There’s something for everyone on Stocks at the moment with good catches coming to most methods, double figure bags have been taken on dries, lures, nymphs and traditional wets. The fish remain close in and bank anglers have found damsels to be the best way of snaring them as they patrol the margins. The boats have seen great action on dries with some stunning fishing coming up to take various hoppers, daddies and bobs bits.
Bank: Dam, Bell Point, Hartley’s and Grindy’s Lawn
Boat: Dam, Grindy’s Lawn, The Alders and Curry’s Cast (Fish are well spread across the lake as well)
