After a very successful March, The Watch Water continues to produce well for bank anglers and those boat fishing. As water temperatures rise and buzzers hatch the trout are spreading out foraging the margins as well as further out in the wind lanes. Powerful and feisty sport is reported by anglers with quality rainbows and blues coming to the net. Floating and intermediate lines appear to be working most successfully with a variety of lures and buzzer patterns producing the action.
For those of you who enjoy the Watch wildlife in equal measure to the fishing, the Ospreys have now returned. As grouse, peewits, oyster catchers and geese etc pair up the environment is suffused with a cacophany of bird song. No traffic noise here!
