Kielder Water: King Kevin!

 

 

 

This last week has seen some of the lesser fished parts of the reservoir produce some great results. Gowanburn, Mathew’s Linn and Hawkhirst Point have all seen anglers take limit catches as the fish continue to spread our following bumper early season stockings. This weeks largest fish was taken from Gowanburn by Kevin McMarren whilst boat fishing using a long tailed Muddler and weighed in at 6lb 1oz. He also managed to take another six fish on a similar method for a total catch weight of 17lb 6oz. Mr Sutton from Rothbury also had some great sport whilst fishing from the boat at Mirage at the north western tip of the reservoir. He too took fish on the surface with smaller traditional patterns and then had more luck slightly deeper with black lures. Bank anglers have continued to find success at Tower Knowe and Stockie Bay. High winds have proved challenging to those in the east corner of Stockie Bay but their perseverance has paid off with plenty of fish coming from this spot over the week to ledgered Power Bait and worm.

 

 

 

The final for the Water Aid competition is taking place Sunday 9 July

Fontburn Reservoir Fishing the Conditions

 

 

 

A challenging week as fish moved into deeper, cooler water and fed sporadically throughout some testing days. As ever it was those anglers who were prepared to keep on the move and fish the conditions that had the most joy. Indeed, it was a week where fishing the margins proved a folly, it was therefore unsurprising that the long casting bait anglers reported the standout catches. Fishing into the prevailing wind also proved vital to success. Mr M Brown recorded the trout of the week, another 3lb 8oz Fontburn reared beauty, part of a trio of fine fish weighed in during a short session on Friday. The weekend saw the two standout overall catches; Mr P James worked hard on Saturday from the Dam Wall in blustery conditions, to eventually weigh in his eight fish limit for a superb total weight of 15lb 4oz. Sunday provided a real highlight when Mr C Morton, fishing with his nephew and fellow anger Mr K Marshall, recorded 15 fish between them for an unsurpassed total weight of over 30lb. The trio chose to fish the south shore bay directly into some strong and cool winds with long casts and ledger rigs which proved too tempting for a shoal of bottom feeding fish.

Derwent Reservoir: Doug nets Percy Hedley prize

 

 

 

Inclement summer weather yet again dominated proceeding, however when the wind dropped some great sport was on offer in the much cooler conditions. Michael Cottrell from Blaydon was lucky enough to catch a tagged fish on his very first visit. He netted the £200 prize money using a copper Mepps spinner and was one of a seven fish catch Friday. Areas near the Dam have fished very well all week as the strong westerly winds have forced fish in these eastern extremities of the reservoir. Derwent held a charity competition Saturday with over £500 raised for The Percy Hedley Foundation. Conditions were a challenge but lots of fish were caught and a rod average over 3.6 fish per angler was recorded. The full results from the charity competition were: 1st Doug Pearson 14lb 3oz, 2nd Derek Hodgson 12lb 7oz and 3rd Wayne Ferguson 11lb 13oz. Doug Pearson had the heaviest fish at 2lb 8oz. A big thank you goes to all those who entered and made the day a great success.

 

 

 

NEWSFLASH – Due to the Tour of the Reservoir cycle race the Dam Wall car parks will be closed for anglers at the weekend. All other areas are open as usual.

Grassholme Reservoir: “Dam Buster” winds bring shoaling fish into feed

 

 

 

Fish again seemed reluctant to return to the margins to feed this week. Anglers found fish in the same spots as last week, in the deeper water around the north bank. Small silver Mepps brought good numbers to the net with anglers commenting on getting good numbers in brief spells which indicates fish are tending to feed in shoals. Thursday saw the focus move over to the south shore with plenty of fish caught around the platform area and towards the Witch’s Hat. This excellent sport continued into Friday with a 5.7 rod average for the day in some terrible conditions with fierce winds lashing waves onto the Dam Wall. Saturday’s visitors took full advantage of the winds from the previous day with fish holding well into the corner of the Dam Wall and it was rich pickings. Paul Davies ledgering orange Power bait eggs and took his limit catch in super quick time signing out along with a few others before the morning had really got started. Anglers flocked to this area hoping for similar rewards but just as quick as the sport had started it was over with the shoal moving away from the area. Sunday saw a similar pattern to most of the week with the north bank producing fish early but on the whole it was a challenging day for most. Although Chris Randall did stand out returning four and taking four, along with the biggest fish of the week, a nice blue trout weighing in at 3lb 8oz, caught on a Cormorant fished on an intermediate line, which stripped him right back to his backing line!

Hury Reservoir: Rod Average Rockets!

 

 

 

A quiet week at Hury as high winds at the weekend probably put a few people off. Those who fished had some of the best weeks sport so far this season with most anglers posting double digit returns taking the rod average to nine fish per angler for the week! Malcolm Longstaff got the week off to a flyer, returning 10 fish all from around the boil area on a number of lure patterns. As the week progressed natural patterns were catching most fish with Daddies, Hoppers and Shuttlecocks bringing lots of fish up for some top of the water action. Thursday saw Gordon Byers and Tim Grove return 37 fish between them, which is top draw numbers by anyone’s standards all on dries, showing the cracking head of fish Hury has built up since the start of the season. As the weekend arrived it was back to stripping lures as windy conditions made casting hard work but those who braved the wind were rewarded posting good numbers from the north banks with orange and olive fritz patterns bringing plenty of fish to the net.

Scaling Dam: Cat’s the way to do it!

 

 

 

We had a real mixture of changing conditions throughout the week, altering the fishing patterns and keeping everyone on their toes. For several days the fish were more active around the west end of the reservoir, then over to the south side and finally over the weekend the east end of the reservoir became most productive. On Wednesday the jetty was the hotspot for the third week in a row for Ian Grand from Hartlepool catching his eight fish limit before lunchtime yet again, all on Spring Green Power Bait and worm. Also on the jetty was Charlie Clark from Stockton who took a more leisurely pace to catch his eight rainbows using a Glow Mice-tail tipped with green Power Bait. He returned Friday to reap the same rewards again this time varying the colours of his Power Bait and swapping to worm. Also on Friday Graham Fraser from Whitby decided to do a spot of fly fishing for a change working his way along the whole length of the south shore, the moment he put a Cat’s Whisker on he had take after take and had a fantastic afternoon ending up returning 26 rainbows. On Saturday it was the turn for anglers at the east end of the Dam, especially Harry Noble from Whitby and Nigel Katib from Pocklington who both caught their eight fish limits using a worm and Power Bait cocktail.
