Fishing Report and News 11/4/22 – 17/4/22

116 anglers caught 794 trout for a rod average of 6.84

Toft keeps giving at the moment and our excellent stock of fish have proved to be very cooperative indeed. At the risk of sounding like a broken record nothing much has changed in the way of tactics – it’s the time of year to generally adopt an imitative type of approach.

In keeping with recent weeks the fish have been gorging on the massive amount of buzzers that have been hatching, interestingly olive has been the predominant colour. As you would expect the fish are in top condition and really piling the weight on as they feed heavily, a lot of the fish currently averaging over 2lbs and many are over 3lbs.

Jason James and his fishing partner Dave Hewison enjoyed an afternoon in the boat fishing dries, they took a cracking bag of fish away with them with the majority falling to a type of ‘bobs bits’ variant.

There’s a bit of something for everyone at the moment and if buzzers, nymphs and dries aren’t your regular cup of tea then it is still possible to get them on various lure patterns with long tailed damsels proving a great option – olive is definitely the colour to be using right now.

On Wednesday we adding another stocking of very nearly 250 rainbows from Olsten Trout, they soon get settled in with the other fish and begin feeding on naturals almost straight away.

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………

81 rods caught 261 trout for a rod average of 3.19

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…….
