Chew Valley Lake

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

For nymph fishing, long leaders and team of three flies - "buzzer" pupae in various colours. It is important to move the flies VERY slowly if at all! With dry fly, best to use two flies on a 12 foot leader spaced about five feet apart. !2 on the point and 14 on the dropper. For the pike a wire trace is compulsory, and as there are some very large fish in the lake, a minimum tippet strength of 25lbs is required. Large (2/0 and 3/0) bait immitations are best

Seven-day forecast 

Dam area best with fast sinker and small lures or boobies.
But still plenty of fish at shallower parts - it is just that the water is too warm for them to be feeding.
