An idyllic scene - Eyebrook provides a peaceful venue and fine sport.

Try Diawl bach or black buzzers fished very slowly on floating or intermediate lines early in the season.

 Looking forwards to new trout fishing season at Eyebrook


Fishing commences at Eyebrook on Thursday 28th March 2013, here Andy Miller, Trout Fishery Manager at Eyebrook whets our appetite ahead of the new season.

 

You may recall that the 2012 fishing season started with drought conditions and for angler’s safety, some bank fishing restrictions had to be introduced at Eyebrook, never the less, the fishing remained good. Come the end of April 2012 it rained, and the drought was deemed history. Incidentally, and if you hadn’t noticed, it hasn’t stopped raining since!

 

Now with a subtle hint of spring in the air (I’m quite sure we haven’t seen winter yet!) and with fishing commencing at Eyebrook on Thursday 28th March 2013 the thought of catching a fine, super fit, grown on Eyebrook rainbow or brown trout is I’m sure you’ll agree a mouth-watering prospect. These fish are quite capable of stripping an anglers reel down to its backing in double quick time, lets hope that you find that out by experience!

 

Our fish farmers are confident that they can continue to supply the Eyebrook with the same stamp of superb quality trout that have been introduced in more recent years. Regular stockings of trout, both Rainbows and Brown’s will be introduced throughout the 2013-fishing season.  We would like to acknowledge our fish farmers, Exe Valley Fishery, River Gwash Trout Farm and Westacre Trout Farm and thank them for the very high standard of fish supplied to the Eyebrook. Incidentally, the average size of trout caught during 2012 was 2lb 4oz!

 

Now a little bit of ‘fishing gen’ to hopefully help you catch an early season trout or two!

 

For early season bank fishing success, use fly patterns such as Black and green Nomads, Montana nymphs, Black buzzers and Diawl bach fished slowly on floating or intermediate lines, it is very important to retrieve really slowly as the water temperature will still be low and the fish won’t want to expend energy to feed.

 

For mid season and hopefully warmer conditions, Damsel imitations, Bloodworm patterns, Gold ribbed hares ear nymphs and wet flies such as Silver Invicta, Wingless Wickhams and Bibio account for many superb Eyebrook fish. Cdc emerger’s and dry fly patterns work well from both the bank and boats, and Eyebrook’s “Top of the water action is as good as ever” as witnessed by many visiting anglers in 2012 and previous seasons.

 

Massive numbers of Roach and Perch fry had congregated around the boat pontoons and Dam at the latter end of the 2012 season, with a massive food source like this the remaining resident Eyebrook fish are sure to thrive and offer fantastic sport to the game angler in 2013, predation permitting!

 

For more information contact the Eyebrook Fishing Lodge, Great Easton Road, Caldecott, Leicestershire, LE16 8RP- 01536 772930 or website at www.eyebrook.com.

 

Enjoy yourselves and have a great game fishing season at Eyebrook Trout Fishery in 2013!
