Fishing Report and News 14/3/22 – 20/3/22

95 rods caught a total of 595 trout giving a rod average of 6.26.

Just as we had predicted the onset of some warmer weather really kicked things into life and several anglers managed to crack the code with some great catches from both boat and bank – the boats certainly cover more fish and have caught bigger numbers but bank anglers can help themselves by moving around more frequently.

Boat anglers fared very well again using sinking lines and fishing deeper throughout the day, bank anglers did very well on buzzer patterns catching the majority of their fish in the warmest part of the day from lunch time onwards. the fish can at times move up and down in the water column and changing between straight line buzzer fishing and washing line tactics can certainly bring results at the right time of the day.

As always the onset of better weather means were starting to get a bit busier, booking your boats online when possible will help us to be prepared for your arrival and ensure we can offer good service. A phone call prior to your visit can also help you to prepare your equipment ready for the day, we can offer the latest advice on successful lines, flies, retrieves and areas helping you to get the most out of your day. I managed to sneak out of the office for an hour during the week and promptly caught several nice fish using a 6′ fast intermediate from Airflo, it was a bright breezy day and the knowledge to fish a touch deeper and slower certainly helped to get me into some fish.

For those of you who like a competition or two you may well be familiar with the ‘Toft Newton Vision Stillmaniac Classic’ which we ran last October, we are please to announce that we will be running another even this year around the same time of year and we will announce the details of it this week.

Stocking will continue as normal and the next 2 stockings are scheduled for Thursday 24th and Thursday 31st of March with some of the usual great quality rainbows from Olsten Trout. It’s now the beginning of ‘primetime’ so get the gear dusted off and make your way to Toft!

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…….
