Seighford Lakes Fishing Report
Week Ending June 24
Keely Bailey of Stafford does it again, breaking her old personal best by 5oz. Here she is with a superb looking Mirror Carp caught out of the Old Pool (peg 21). Tipping the scales round to 12lb 10oz she seems to be a natural angler not just at catching fish, but also holding them for pictures. The fish was caught using Mainline Hybrid Wafters fished over a bed of Hybrid 15mm boilies which were whole and crushed. Top angling Keely!
Alex Long had some great sport off the Old Pool last week, landing a total of ten fish in just a short evening session. The 15 year old Stafford based angler took the fish using 14mm boilies. His best fish this week was 15lb 8oz, all caught from peg 9.
Trout Fishing has slowed up slightly now, with the fish shoaling up in three main areas over two pools. Dennis Anslow took four fish on Saturday using a floating line and an egg fly fished very slowly back. Flies fished very slowly or static are the way forward at the moment. Fish are still rising on an evening, even during the day if we get some cloud cover. As always this time of year we suffer with weed in the lakes reducing the bank fishing down to around ten places.
