Kielder Water:  Taking Shelter

 

 

 

With turbulent conditions this week anglers have been taking shelter in smaller bays and inlets to avoid the higher winds. This rewarded the Wilson family who fished in the tip of Whickhope Inlet and managed to land 11 fish for 28lb 12oz. The largest fish weighing 4lb 1oz was taken on a worm and green Power Bait egg mix. For those braving the open reservoir the wave action is disturbing a lot of natural food along the shoreline and fish are venturing closer to feed on fry, and wind blown insects. Mr Johnson took four fish averaging over 2lb each whilst fishing fry patterns at Hawkhope.

 

 

 

Please note: Boats are due back to the jetty at 6pm

Fontburn Reservoir: John Lawton’s Damsel is not distressed!

 

 

 

Cooler nights kept water temperatures on the decline whilst sporadic showers maintained the reservoir level around 10 feet below top water. Sport improved consistently midweek with rod averages peaking above five fish per angler until a switch in wind direction to a north easterly as the weekend arrived. Those who fished the conditions continued to catch steadily, as demonstrated by the Halliwell family who set up in the south shore bay, fishing into the light breeze. All fish were caught following the currents and sisters Kacy and Miley used a wide variety of PowerBait to help the team make a catch of 11 rainbows totalling 17lb 1oz and a great day out for the whole family. Prior to the weekend it was the north shore which saw the bulk of the action with regulars Alan Bate and Sid Barnes both signing out limit catches of eight rainbows apiece weighing in at 14lb 8oz and 14lb respectively. Fish of the week was a 3lb 8oz beauty landed by Gareth Rickerton but it was John Lawton from Dinnington who made the outstanding catch of the week with a limit catch of eight rainbows totalling 10lb 4oz with a further 12 fish carefully returned. He was using a perfectly presented Olive Damsel wet fly and John’s catch also included a coveted tagged fish earning him a £200 payout. There are still ten tagged fish awaiting lucky anglers who are in it to win it, with guaranteed pay outs of £200 for those who land these highly prized fish!

Derwent ReservoirGood Abbotts!

 

 

 

Derwent continued on from last week with excellent sport in most areas and a rod average heading towards four fish per angler. Anglers have been impressed by the size and quality of the fish with many fish weighed in at around the 3lb mark with some excellent catch limits around the 17lb/18lb mark which included Richard Abbott and Ray Whaley. Bait anglers found fish spread up the south shore from the corner of the Dam to the second fence. Ledgered Power Bait eggs continue to work well in combination with Magic Dust in a feeder. Fly anglers have found west to be best with Millshields and the bank west of the Sailing club offering excellent sport with a huge variety of tactics working well, it’s just a matter of marrying these with the conditions. Water levels have begun to rise from the summer low so access is beginning to improve to some of the favoured areas.

 

 

 

NEWSFLASH – Five tagged fish were stocked two weeks ago with two yet to be caught!!

 

 

 

Safety notice: Water levels are continuing to fall so please be careful when wading and avoid boggy and muddy areas.

Grassholme Reservoir: Float to Glory

 

 

 

A week of sunshine, showers and changing wind direction has made conditions challenging but rewarding. Mr. A Emery caught three fish at the disabled platform in quick succession but then decided to move on when it went quiet and caught a further five fish from the west end bridge using orange Mice-tails with a ledger. Simon Nesbitt had success in the corner of the Dam Wall using pink PowerBait eggs with Magic Dust in a swim feeder. Simon caught eight fish over a steady period of six hours fishing with a total catch weight of 16lb 9oz. John Peacock walked to Brock Scar with his fly rod and caught his four fish limit on a credit cruncher permit. John caught his fish using traditional favourites; a Bibio and Kate McLaren with the heaviest fish weighing in at 3lb. Colin Parnaby found the right tactic fishing at the Witch’s Hat, catching two fish early morning using ledgered orange PowerBait eggs. Colin then switched to a float and let his bait drift in front of the spillway where he picked up a further six fish.

 

 

 

NEWSFLASH – Look out for a bumper stocking of 2lb-3lb rainbow this week!

With heavy showers and changing wind directions the fish have spread around the reservoir meaning those anglers who kept on the move have been rewarded with some good sport. Ian Cook from Bishop Auckland caught an eight fish limit using a Cat’s Whisker on an Intermediate line with a slow retrieve. Ian’s heaviest fish weighed in at an impressive 3lb. James Hunter fished on the north bank towards Reedy Point and also caught his eight fish limit, James was using a Dawson’s Olive on the point with a Kate McLaren on the dropper, again a slow retrieve was the key to James’s success with both flies managing to hook several fish. Mr. A Phillips took four fish on a credit cruncher permit fishing at the mouth to Newhouse Bay, fishing with a team of Buzzer’s and letting them drift around in the wind Mr Phillips had plenty of takes and managed to land his four fish limit and return two more rainbows.

Scaling Dam Lloyd banks 12 beauties!

 

It was a windy wet start and ending to the week, however it was still a decent start on Monday for Dave Blissett and Richard Warburton. They settled themselves into position at the first beach along the moor side and then went home happily mid afternoon with three and four fish caught respectively using worm with Power Bait cocktails. On Tuesday it was Craig Husband’s turn as he went to his favourite beach section opposite the lodge and again caught himself seven fine rainbows and one blue all on ledgered cheese PowerBait. Wednesday saw visitor Andrew Lloyd enjoy a day with his son and fished at the west end of the Dam, their changing tactics approach worked a treat as they swapped from fly to bait and spinning ending their fun with 12 rainbows between them after purchasing a second permit. On Friday it was once again the first beach area on the moor side where Ged Evans from Southbank fished his loyalty day and was rewarded with eight rainbows all on a worm with orange Powerbait egg cocktail. Also fly angler Mr. RA Osbourne returned three rainbows using a mini muddler at the east end of the Dam. Saturday was jetty day for Ian Grand from Hartlepool and armed with ledgered rainbow PowerBait he continued with his excellent season catching himself another eight quality fish.
