Kielder Water: 

Fly life bursts on to the water!

 

With a spell of long overdue rain the sport dramatically improved and fly life has exploded on to the water.  Black buzzers, a few hawthorns and the odd sedge have been seen with fish feeding on them in Whickhope and the tip of Plashetts Bay.  A team of colleagues from the Scottish Prison Service had a three day mid-week break on site.  Their friendly competition between the five anglers saw them catch over eighty fish between them!  Most were taken on orange PowerBait eggs from various locations on the reservoir.  With fine weather forecast for the next few days there can be no finer place to explore with a rod, line and a boat!

Please note: To book places on the next heat Sunday 28 May please call Leaplish on 01434 251 000.  Please note that boats are currently due back at the jetty at 8pm.

Fontburn Reservoir:

The Three Johns!   

 

Another week of challenging weather certainly tested our angler’s ability to adapt with those who were tactically flexible reporting the best results.  Large shoals of fish were seen on the rise during warmer intervals and it was the fly anglers who made hay during these frenetic spells.  Indeed, regular fly anglers John Lawton and John Brennand stole the show in the middle part of the week, as the ‘two Johns’ recorded a total of 21 fish between them with seven returned to the reservoir.  The dynamic duo had their success with a trusty Cat’s Whisker pattern, a favourite at Fontburn, this and Hawthorne which has come into its own in recent weeks.  The weekend belonged to bait angler John Robinson, who secured the week’s best brace weighing in at 4lb 8oz and 4lb 2oz respectively.  John persisted with his PowerBait tipped ledger rig in the north shore bay and was delighted with his two Fontburn reared specimen rainbows.  Overall the week saw rod averages holding at over four fish per angler, a clear indication of the superb sport on offer, in spite of the at times disappointing and unseasonably cold weather.

Derwent Reservoir:

Bigger fish finally show up!

 

At long last we began to see some bigger fish finally hit the nets after some 20 large rainbows stocked so far this season up to around 12lb.  Mr J Aittis took the biggest fish of the season Monday weighing in at 8lb 11oz to be followed by Mr A Rutherford who netted a whopper at the weekend of 7lb 2oz on worm and red PowerBait eggs.  Sean Kane also weighed in with a cracking 7lb 12oz rainbow Saturday on the fly fishing at Cronkley using an Olive Zonker.  There were also some heavier eight fish catches recorded as bigger fish begin to react to the warmer water.  Mr D Pearcy netted an eight fish 23lb catch to top an outstanding week with the rod average well over four fish per angler.  It was noticeable that fish were caught in larger quantities all around the reservoir this week following a change in wind direction and much warmer conditions.  Fly anglers are finding fish on the meadow and Cronkley using a variety of traditional techniques to great effect and bait anglers found all areas of the south side offering good sport with the first fence area fishing particularly well.

 

NEWSFLASH – Double stocking of over 1,000 fish this week!

Grassholme Reservoir:

Ian nets season best     

 

With a mixed bag of weather conditions fishing has been challenging but at times very rewarding as Ian Cannon was delighted to find out with 12 fish caught and returned to the water on our ever popular £15 catch and release permit.  Ian enjoyed some of the best sport of his life and completed his day by netting and returning a 12lb 8oz fully finned rainbow caught on a Dawson’s Olive.  This is one of several recently stocked this size which are still at large, so check your tackle and set those drags!  Jeff Walsh took an eight fish limit from the beach near the ramp using a hook bait of PowerBait with a swim feeder full of Magic Dust.  Mr R Jackson from Morecambe Bay visited Grassholme and fished the north shore and netted a full eight fish catch limit using PowerBait on the hook in conjunction with a swim feeder.

Anglers reported fish feeding close to the margins when there is cloud cover and moving to deeper water when the sun is at its height, so anglers are adapting to the conditions and adjusting there tactics to suit.  Many anglers are also putting there bait rod down and having a go with a spinner which is probably the very best method at Grassholme in the right hands!  Fly anglers are also enjoying their sport with an abundance of terrestrial fly life on the water at this time of year and small black flies seem to be the preferred offering. That said, a Dawson’s Olive is still holding its own as a top lure, especially for newly stocked fish!  Easter Bay the Witch’s Hat along with the north shore and the west end of the reservoir seem to be the hot spots at the moments and we are looking forward to some more excellent sport with the weather looking great!

Hury Reservoir:

Derek nets Hury beast! 

 

Derek Carr took the fish of the season so far with a pristine 8lb 8oz rainbow to complete a six fish catch early in the week.  Derek is a regular at Hury and was delighted with such an outstanding quality rainbow, with several others this size still at large!  With many fish in the 3lb to 4lb bracket fishing at Hury has been fly anglers paradise and with a good stocking of Lartington’s superb rainbows sport has never looked more promising!  Reedy Point to the Dam Wall is still proving the most productive area and with the weather set to improve this week surface sport is expected to be of the very highest order!  Lures are still holding their own, however, when conditions allow small black flies, black beetles or a Hawthorn are a must.  Mr B Coatman took eight rainbows for the table and returned three fish to fight another day using Blobs and a Dawson’s Olive lure.  Mr L Gibson had a great day landing 11 fish and returning eight.  Mr J Connolly had a memorable day returning 12 quality rainbows with most of the fish between 2lb and 3lb 8oz.

 

Please note: Several large rainbows stocked last week which have yet to be caught!

Scaling Dam:

Moor side Magic!

 

Sudden changes in weather didn’t stop anglers from getting their catch limits from all areas of the reservoir.  The Moorside has seen the best of the action for both bait and fly anglers alike with this location an ideal food source for browsing trout!  Fly anglers Stuart Walker and Tony Ward from Guisborough headed to the moorside opposite the lodge and returned 14 trout between them with Stuart having the most success catching eight on a gold headed Yellow Mop and Bloodworm.  Craig Husband from Lingdale had another fantastic session opposite the lodge taking eight fish on ledgered garlic PowerBait paste.  The action continued opposite the lodge at the weekend for Jeff Wales from Boosbeck and his son taking their eight fish limits on ledgered garlic PowerBait pink eggs tipped with a Scaling worm.  The jetty had Harry Noble from Sleights going home with his limit and total catch weighing 13lb 13oz all caught on worm/white Mice-tail. Peter Rathbone from Middlesbrough also ended up with a limit catch weighing in at 13lb 6oz all caught on orange PowerBait paste.  The east end rocks provided George Frazer with his eight fish limit all caught on bubble float and worm.  Our biggest recorded trout of the week fell for Thomas West aged 11 from Stockton on Tees who caught a nice 3lb blue trout on a Jelly Paddle Tail lure from the west end rocks.

 

NEWSFLASH – More tagged fish to be added along with a bumper weekend stocking!
