Reopening of Foremark is eagerly anticipated

Four months have passed since the closure of Foremark Reservoir’s gates to anglers and the anticipation is running high for the new season that is set to begin next Friday, March 1.

This 230-acre water has really come into its own, with consistent catches throughout the year.

There are plenty of fish still in there but pre-season stocking will be taking place over the next few days.

As usual, these fish will be wide ranging in weight so the first few days should be a bit of a bonanza.

In the early part of the season, the banks really fish well, but the further that you walk, you will find that you will come into contact with more over-wintered fish, but you might get fewer of them.

Prices have been increased slightly on last season, but those taking out boats on a regular basis will get their ninth trip free of charge with the new cards that have been introduced.
