Kielder Water:  

 

Size:  2,700 acres (1,093h), Max Depth 178 feet (55m)                                                    

Sat Nav NE48 1BT                                                               

 

Catch of the week Jason Wainwright from Brampton took this week’s largest fish whilst fishing from Matthew’s Linn. The 4lb fish fell to sweet corn fished on the bottom. Mr. Wainwright was using carp fishing techniques with a bolt rig and short leader. This proved successful with two other fish taken on the same method.

Memorable Moment of the week: The annual charity boat fishing competition between Northumbrian Water, Forestry Commission and the Environment Agency took place Saturday. However, ever increasing water temperatures and bright conditions made fishing a challenging with the majority of fish taken on the tip of the Belling Inlet. Hanging small spider patterns or very slow retrieved nymphs on floating lines were the most successful techniques. Thank you to all who supported the day and helping to raise over £300 towards the Air Ambulance 

Best areas and flies: Lewisburn, the tip of the Belling Inlet. Dabblers, Spiders and Black Nymphs fished slowly, or hung, have proven most successful.

Best areas and baits / lures: Merlin Brae and Whickhope with red and black Mepps spinners, sweet corn and Powerbait.

Please note: Fishing boats should be returned to the finger Jetty at Kielder Waterside for 8pm.

Special message for the new week: All anglers should note that with the hot and dry conditions continuing through the week there is an extreme fire risk. Do not light fires, dispose of litter carefully, respect all warning and closure signs and call 999 immediately if you see fire or smoke. Please protect your countryside.

Fontburn Reservoir:

Size: 87 acres (35h), Max Depth 80 feet (25m) Sat Nav: NE61 4PL ,Grid Ref: NZ040 935  

 

 

Catch of the week: The headlines were made by Les Little and Derek Hodgson who defied the continuing heat wave to record two outstanding limit catches Saturday. Both Derek and Les heeded the conditions and opted to target bottom feeding shoals in proximity to the valve tower from the Dam Wall. The valve tower is the deepest part of the reservoir, where the water temperatures remain lowest for longer. It didn’t take long for both Les and Derek to make hay, with Les weighing in the undisputed catch of the week, which tipped the scales to beyond the 24lb mark - stunning stuff!

 

 

 

Memorable moment of the week: Fly angler Mark Warren, decided to give buzzers a go during some sweltering conditions. Mark utilised his trusty “heat wave” pattern which landed him the fish of the week, a ‘fintastic’ 4lb 8oz specimen rainbow trout. Mark arrived late in the day to take advantage of some slightly cooler conditions and the Fontburn evening rise in and around the north shore bay. Obviously he was right on the money and got his tactics, timing and location spot on.

 

 

 

Best areas and flies: North shore bay and Dam Wall near the valve tower using a Buzzer or Cat’s Whisker.  

 

 

 

Best areas and baits/lures: North shore beyond the burn to the top bay and the valve tower section of the Dam Wall. Worms and neon blue Powerbait cocktail.

Catch of the week: Mr S Richardson from Bedlington took the best fish of the week with a 5lb beauty from the Dam Wall

 

 

 

Memorable Moment of the week: It’s been another tough week given the warm conditions and high water temperatures. However, anglers fishing to the conditions are finding lots of fish with the Dam Wall fishing very well for all methods.

 

 

 

Best areas and flies: The Dam Wall has offered fly anglers some good sport throughout the week. Alan Kinsley had a good day Saturday hitting lots of fish near the Tower using a sinking line, long leader and weighted lure and counting down to 10. Alan said the fish could only be located at this extreme depth but once found he was getting takes frequently!

 

 

 

Best areas and baits / lures: The Dam Wall and disabled platform have offered the best sport with angers casting at distance and with ledgered bait have best results. Mr. D Ward bought two permits Thursday and left with 14 fish, fishing with his friend Mr. A Nelson who also caught seven. They were fishing the disabled area casting into deeper, cooler water.

 

 

 

Newsflash: With cooler conditions and more cloud cover this week we expect sport to improve. We will be adding more tagged fish also.

Size: 140 acres (57h), Max Depth 120 feet (38m),Grid Ref: NY940 224,Sat Nav: DL12 0PW

 

Catch of the week: Keith Smith catching his eight fish limit for a total weight of 25lb with four of his fish weighing 4lb each. Keith was fishing on the Dam Wall next to the tower where the water is deeper and caught most of his fish on sunshine yellow Powerbait paste on a ledger rig with a short trace.

 

 

 

Memorable Moment of the week: Peter Gray caught the seventh tagged fish of the season and landed himself £200 in the process. Peter was fishing at the west end of the reservoir and caught his tagged fish using pink Powerbait eggs on a ledger.

 

 

 

Best areas and flies: With water temperatures still high finding deeper water is the key to success. Pebble Beach has again seen a number of fish caught with anglers opting to use buoyant flies on a sinking line fished slow or static.

 

 

 

Best areas and baits / lures: Seeking out deep water is a must at present, again this week the middle of the Dam Wall along to the tower has fished well with plenty of limits recorded from this area. Ledgered tactics with a short trace have been the best method with only a short cast required to get into the deep water. Red Gulp eggs, pink Powerbait eggs and sunshine yellow Powerbait paste have all produced good numbers of fish this week.

Catch of the week: Mr. G Johnson catching and releasing nine rainbows up to 4lb in weight. Mr Johnson found the fish in New House Bay where fish were sitting in fresh water on a bright sunny day and caught most of his fish on a Bibio.

 

Memorable Moment of the week: Ian Sterling walked the reservoir on a hot bright day and was rewarded with six excellent conditioned trout including his first ever blue trout! Ian was using mainly wet flies such as a Kate McLaren and Bibio.

 

Best areas and flies: Anglers moving to find the fish have had some great sport. New House Bay has again produced a good number of fish as it has a constant flow of fresh water and fish move in seeking cooler temperatures. Wet traditional flies such as a Kate McLaren, Black Pennell and a Bibio have had the most success.

Scaling Dam:

Size: 105 acres, Max Depth 30 feet (9m) Sat Nav TS13 4TP ,Grid Ref: NZ746 127                                 

 

 

Catch of the week: Alan Marsay from Skinningrove had a great day along the east end wall catching eight rainbows on sunshine yellow Powerbait. Harry Noble from Whitby gains the star of the week accolade catching eight rainbows including 1 x 4lb 8oz, 1x 4lb and 1x 3lb fishing the shallow water of the east end rocks. Green Powerbait paste and eggs were used by Kyle and Harry.

 

 

 

Memorable Moment of the week: Richard Wishart from Middlesbrough was really looking forward to his first chance this year at a family outing enjoying his favourite sport. They all had a thoroughly enjoyable day on the east end wall with everyone catching and with scores of 3, 4, 5, and 6 finished with a total of 18 rainbows between them.

 

 

 

Best areas and flies: Roger Osbourne from Redcar enjoyed his day fly fishing along the west end of the wall, although he only managed to return one from the net he was kept busy with lots of takes using a variety of small black dry flies.

 

 

 

Best areas and baits / lures: For the majority of the week the east end bay area has been most successful with chartreuse and green Powerbait far outweighing all other attractants. On Sunday the wind direction changed and it was back to the west end for the best catches.

 

 

 

Special message for the new week: This last week the fish have been most active at the opposite end of the wind direction where the water is calmer and the insect hatches are more frequent, be prepared to up camp and go looking for them. Where will this weeks stocking end up we wonder?

Best areas and baits / lures: For the majority of the week the east end bay area has been most successful with chartreuse and green Powerbait far outweighing all other attractants. On Sunday the wind direction changed and it was back to the west end for the best catches.

 

 

 

Special message for the new week: This last week the fish have been most active at the opposite end of the wind direction where the water is calmer and the insect hatches are more frequent, be prepared to up camp and go looking for them. Where will this weeks stocking end up we wonder?
