Kielder Water: 

Going, Going, GONE!  

This is your last chance to sit on the banks of Kielder this year for a fish, as Friday 17 November is Kielders' last day.

 

The frosty cold starts have seen only the hardiest anglers out on the water this last week who have been rewarded with some great, crisp weather and a few quality fish as well. James Richardson from Cramlington had a great catch with the largest weighing in at 3lb 2oz. His other four fish were also over 2lb. All fell to ledgered orange PowerBait at Hawkhope Car Park.

 

With a great season behind us, the team at Kielder would like to thank all of our anglers for their continued support, and we hope to see you all again next season. 

Please note: Tower Knowe is now closed for permit sales. Permits can still be purchased from Leaplish. Fishing during November is 9am until 4pm and cost for a day permit will be £17 for a 10 fish limit.

Fontburn Reservoir:

Teasdale Tops Catch Returns

A cold dry week saw the reservoir drop slightly to two feet below top water whilst temperatures decreased to around 8.5 degrees. Sport was sporadic as some anglers found steady takes in the swims whilst others waited longer in-between bites. Fishing into the wind increased the odds of making contact with actively feeding shoals although this tactic could be uncomfortable in the bitter cold northerlies towards the end of the week. Fish of the week was a 3lb beauty landed by John Stobbart near the north shore burn using a feeder rig enhanced by a touch of garlic scent. It was glorious sunny autumn conditions on Friday which brought about the best catches as Mr. J Teasdale and Mr. D Bell both took six of the best weighing in their catches for 12lb 4oz and 10lb 4oz respectively. With 13 tagged fish still waiting to be caught, the end of season bumper payout for the next two tagged fish, landed by anglers in the sweepstake, will earn a double cash prize of £400 each, a substantial Xmas bonus for those in it to win it!

Derwent Reservoir:

The first real cold snap of the season has had anglers scratching their heads as fish have definitely changed feeding habits and areas. The meadow on the north shore and around the first fence on the south shore are still producing a few fish to keep the interest going but anglers are still to workout the winning combination. The standard tactics of ledgered PowerBait and swim feeder will always put one or two fish in the net from the usual areas but finding at what distance and depth the fish are feeding is the key to unlocking a decent catch and as always adding extra scent to the feeder is a must do. Fly anglers are having the same dilemma and using various line densities to search all water layers is a must to put a fish or two in the net. Larger, mobile lures should give anglers the best chance of enticing a reaction from the fish as water temperatures fall.

Grassholme Reservoir:   

 

Jeff Walsh shines with PowerBait Fry 

 

With a week of crisp, cold, clear mornings at Grassholme trout were slow to feed on a morning, however, once the autumn sun warmed the trout went on the hunt for the shoaling fry. Regular visitor Jeff Walsh was delighted with his visit to Grassholme with a six fish catch achieved with a combination of PowerBait eggs tipped with PowerBait fry fished in conjunction with a swim feeder filled with Magic Dust. Mr. P D Cook enjoyed his days fishing and was rewarded with three fish. Darren Robson took the biggest fish of the week at a superb 3lb 2oz along with another fine trout. Anglers reported that feeding fish are no more than two rod lengths out and stealth is a must as to not to disturb the feeding fish. Mr. M Jarrett decided to have a couple of hours fishing and with his first cast of a well placed spinner landed a fine fully finned rainbow achieved by casting along the margins where the feeding fish are located chasing fry.

Hury:

 

Grand Feeding Frenzy!

Yet again this week the feeding trout have been located near the margins hunting the shoaling fry. Mr Grand was delighted with an eight fish catch and amongst these was a fully finned superb 3lb 9oz rainbow. Mr Anton also had a superb day with a nine fish catch along side Mr Karlis who also had a memorable day with an eight fish catch. Mr A. Warwick enjoyed his visit to Hury with three pristine rainbows. Anglers reported that yet again the feeding fish were located close to the margins where the shoaling fry are seeking shelter. Fly anglers who travel light and roam the banks are enjoying the late season sport on offer as they connect with superb fish and a well placed lure seems to be doing the business. There is still a lot of virgin water for any method anglers so travelling light and fishing some of the many bays that Hury has to offer may produce some excellent sport as these bays may hold a good head of resident trout.

Scaling Dam:

  

With temperatures dropping to just above freezing and strong gusting winds with rain and even hail thrown in for good measure, it has been a testing week for the anglers who braved the elements. Although anglers ventured to varied spots around the reservoir the fish remained elusive and difficult to locate. Patience was rewarding for Charlie Clark from Middlesbrough as he fished the jetty and netted two rainbows on ledgered white Mice-tails tipped with green PowerBait. At the east end Harry Noble from Whitby was also successful in catching two rainbows, after missing three bites he added a touch of garlic PowerBait to his green with white Mice Tails cocktail which worked a treat.
