 14lb Brown is biggest fish of the season at Pitsford


Stamford AFC Club Shop

 


PITSFORD WATER

+44 (0)1604 883920



Fish 328 (season 2,390) Returns 61 (426)Rod average 5.38(5.61)

The biggest news of the week or even the season so far is the capture of the best fish of the season – a stunning 14lb Brown trout.

Graham Pearson of Northampton took this stunning specimen whilst boat fishing in Stone Barn. Graham had only just started when his black diawl bach was taken by his ‘fish of a lifetime’. Graham intends to have the fish mounted. This same fish had been taken not once, but twice previously during the winter pike trials. Phil Jordan caught it on both occasions on large dead baits. This fine Brown would have been stocked at no more than 1lb 8oz and would possibly have been over ten years old, proof that the fish can grow on to reach these incredible sizes.

 

It has been another great week at Pitsford with a rod average of 5.4. Both boat and bank are fishing superbly to nymph tactics on floating or midge tip lines. Black buzzers and diawl bach are the top patterns.

Notable catches during the week included R Leaning from Broughton who had the biggest Rainbow of the week, a cracking fish of 5lb 2oz. Dave Newens enjoyed two very productive mornings fishing from the bank, catching his six fish limit both times with buzzers. Dave Strudwick caught and returned 21 fish including some lovely overwintered specimens during two bank sessions. The boat action has been prolific. Danny Peet and his boat partner Rick Varley returned 24 fish in one session. Andrew Rogers caught 19 fish on his visit, returning 15. Luke Key from Market Harborough caught 25 fish, returning 21.

 

The best areas are still Stone Barn, Gravels, Duffers, Stilton, Gorse and Pig Stream.

Best Rainbow 5lb 2oz.
