July 2010 :: Here is the latest fishing report for Nineoaks Fishery near Aberaeron, Ceredigion in West-Wales.
As we go from June in to July the catch rate of Trout ,as expected, has slowed down. Early mornings and late evenings are definitely the best times to fish, as the ambient temperature is cooler and shadows longer. While the Trout lakes are covered with Damsels and lots of other fly life the sunny summer days are not helping the Trout angler one bit. Since the middle of June many Trout have been caught on tiny black dry flies.
The best wet flies have been the black and green Viva's or Montana's fished on a slow retrieve close to the bottom with Goldhead Damsels, Fritzes in various colours, the Cats Whisker or Hares Ear all producing fish. Black & Yellow and other colours rubber legged Daddies are another deadly fly to be fished here. Either fished on a floating line with long leader or on an intermediate line. Our average fish is around the 2lb to 2.5lb mark with many bigger. One angler caught and lost at the net a fish estimated around the 9lb mark.
The lakes are almost algae free, and the aerators built in to the bottom of each lake are on all through the night. The surface of the lakes have been smothered with small flies, gnats and so on and plenty of different coloured Damsels including the fairly rare "Beautiful Damsel".
Recent Coarse catches have included :
Sweetcorn, luncheon meat, small Boilies, paste and cat food plus various floating baits such as dog biscuits, waffle and bread are all catching fish regularly. Early mornings and late afternoons, especially on floating baits, can produce some spectacular results. Fairly frequently 10lb+ fish are being caught with the best this month at 17lb, several 14's, 12's and plenty of 10's and many near 10's. Our average Carp being around the 5-6lb mark.
The Roach fishing is becoming superb with plenty of "large" Roach being caught. We are almost at the point where we can nearly guarantee at least a 1/2lb fish per session with many much bigger coming out regularly. Plenty of Tench, skimmers and good Bream are being caught too. Local Grass Carp specialist, Mark Roberts of Ffosy Ffin, fishing floating dog biscuits has stalked and landed 2 fish - an 11lb and one at 15lb with bigger fish eluding him so far.
Three regulars Peter, Martin and James, from the Penrhiwgaled Arms, New Quay, who fish floating Purina dog biscuits have tremendous sport, just inches out from the bank, while standing behind the many bushes and reed beds that abound the lakes. They regularly catch over 20 fish per session.
