RIVER DERWENT MATCH RESULT 13/3/2016
This was the last match before the closed season, so everyone was hoping that the River would be fishable for a change. With not much rain during the week the water level had dropped throughout the week, but the River had come up over night. This was probably due to them letting water out of the Derwent dams. The decision was taken that enough decent and safe pegs could be found on the River, so the last match would be fished where it should be!
12 Anglers fished the match and it was Ken Wood fishing from Peg 49 who landed 12 Grayling for a weight of 7-4. Again the Grayling were all of a good size, Ken caught well on the pole feeder and stick float.
In a close second place was John Barfoot fishing from Peg 108, John landed 10 fish for 6-8, catching well on the stick float and bomb rod. Third place was taken by Steve Allcock who has been in fine form in the last few months. Steve landed 12 Grayling for 5-8 fishing from Peg 89 catching well on the stick float and pole feeder. In fourth was Malcolm Bent who weighed 4-10 from Peg105.
Lots of big Grayling have been caught over the last few months, not so many small ones showing, lets hope that when we return to the river in June, we start to see a few smaller Grayling. These small Grayling can only be a good sign for the future of the Grayling stocks in the River!
