    Default river Dove 2014/15

    Had my first session last saturday at doveridge river very low (79cm) but not to clear. Fished the waggler because of the slow flow about 2/3rds across, did ok 1/2a dozen perch, a grayling, a chub and a rather nice brownie about a pound. Lets hope we get some rain soon to pick up the water levels. There was a early season report of a catch of 28chub in one session on this stretch, l'm not expecting a repeat that was anexceptional days sport.

    River fishing well today despite low levels, had around 30 mostly trout and grayling but including chub, dace perch and for the first time on this stretch (over 15years) 3 roach, only small but a good sign, the river is stuffed with fry good for the future hopefully.

    John, which River Dove are you fishing?
    I tread the path where no one goes,
    and cast to fish nobody knows.

    Cheers John.

    I had a day down there on the DRAC book a about ten years ago. Lovely river, but a bit too far for me to travel at that time.

    Competition for a peg this morning with 3 people beating me to the river. Fishing a peg thats normally good for just one or two fish I managed several trout and grayling and 3 chub which included 2 clonkers around the 5lb mark, just about as big as they get around here so well pleased. It could have been better I lost the biggest grayling I've ever had on my line, looks like I'll have to try again next week and everyone else caught aswell, top fishing.

    I'd love to fish the uttoxeter stretch John as its not far from my home (Stafford), I fished a stretch in Derbyshire as a guest on the Burton mutual but blanked and would love to change my fortunes, is the uttoxeter stretch day ticket?

    No but a kidsgrove anglers ticket is just £28 a year, may still be some left at just a tenner which lasts till jan 1st, enquire at tackle shops in stoke on trent.

    Just me and a friend this week, it was cold and foggy untill dinner time but not so as you couldn't see a float 20yds down the river, with no wind it was perfect conditions for trotting , the river was up a few centimeters and quite coloured but it run of quickly. Had another good day on the grayling and trout, 1lb plus the best grayling a gorgeous fish that put up a great scrap with the best brownie going about 2 1/2, lovely. Pity the chub didn't show but we both caught and had a good day. The number of grayling about bodes well for the winter fishing.

    Lovely day today and I had the river to myself but the fishing was a bit slow only had 1/2 dozen grayling and the odd trout , however I saved the best for the end of the day with a huge grayling which must have been around the 2lb mark, magnificent fish which put up a great scrap, had to hold it upright in the flow for a couple of minutes before it was ready to swim off.
