Fishing Report and News 21/2/22 – 27/2/22

41 rods caught 108 trout for a rod average of 2.63. Its fair to say that its been still a tad on the breezy side following on from the storms of the week previous and I’m pretty sure that if more boats has been able to go out then we would have seen a lot more fish c aught – those that accessed the deeper water certainly faired better.

Fishing during the cooler months of the year needs to be enjoyable, by being prepared for your day you’ll have a better experience. A few simple pointers can help you make the most of your day:

  1. Dress appropriately – if you get cold you’ll never fish very well.
  2. Take a hot drink to help keep you warmed up – it’s good for morale!
  3. Go equipped – take a range of lines to cover different fish holding depths.
  4. always ask in the lodge for the latest info on tactics and areas.
  5. Keep swapping areas and tactics until you find success.

Certainly anglers had to keep ringing the changes over the last week to stay in touch with the fish, those that did best used darker/duller flies with less bright colours than we sometimes see. Either fast intermediate lines with lures such as Olive bead head fritz or Black/Green taddies seemed good as did faster sinking lines with booby patterns in similar colours.

We’ve added another stocking of 300 rainbows this morning 28/2/2022 and the video shows just a few of them making their way down the slide and into Toft.

As always day tickets can either be purchased online in advance or by visiting the tackle shop onsite.

See you soon folks

In terms of tactics it was pretty much of a muchness as is often the case at Toft, being a relatively shallow lake its possible to catch fish pretty close to or on the surface for most of the year and last week was no exception. Washing line tactics with a small Tequila FAB on the point and Red Head Diawl Bach’s on the droppers proved as ever deadly………

A real mixed bag of a week weather wise certainly hasn’t made it easy for us. As I write (22/6/22) it would appear that the hot weather has kept one or two of you away, perhaps jobs in the garden or a visit to The Lincolnshire Show have been high on the agenda – I must admit a sun lounger and some very cold cider do have a certain appeal attached to them…………

100 rods caught 374 trout for a rod average of 3.74

During spells of variable weather being adaptable is the key to success. In the brighter periods fishing a touch deeper from the boats found good sport though bank anglers can still catch more than their share by fishing smaller dries and nymphs close in – the key quite often is to ‘stick at it’, too many times lately were seeing anglers casting 20 yards when realistically shorter casts of 5-7 yards would put them in front of fish and offer better presentation…….
