Kielder Water:  

Size:  2,700 acres (1,093h), Max Depth 178 feet (55m)  Sat Nav NE48 1BT 

 

Catch of the week: The largest fish was taken by Giles Folly of Haltwhistle. His 4lb 9oz fish was caught on a small Devon Minnow whilst fishing in Whickhope Bay. He also managed to land another three fish in Whickhope which fell to ledgered orange Powerbait. 

 

 

 

Memorable Moment of the week: Mr Pilling from Jesmond was fishing Saturday with his wife. Much to his dismay, whenever Mr Pilling handed the rod to his wife she managed to catch a fish. He made it to the end of the day with only one fish whilst Mrs Pilling had successfully landed four!

 

 

 

Best areas and flies: Whickhope, Kielder Waterside and Stockie Bay have fished well using blobs, fritz patterns and a Cat’s Whisker.

 

 

 

Best areas and baits / lures: Tower Knowe, Kielder Waterside and Stockie Bay using Powerbait, worm and sweet corn

 

 

 

Please note: We are hosting the annual Jack Charlton fishing competition Wednesday 23 May and there will be restrictions to bank angling around Kielder Waterside on the day. Please ask at reception for details.

 

 

 

Special message for the new week: Boats are currently due back at the jetty for 8pm.

Fontburn Reservoir:

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

 

Catch of the week: With numerous anglers making limit catches exceeding 20lb it was DavId Hamilton from Ashington who topped the list with eight rainbows totalling 26lb from the north shore bay using feeder and PowerBait tactics. Nearby Paul Dodds used similar methods to take seven rainbows plus a blue totalling 25lbs with six of his fish weighing over 3lb.

 

 

 

Memorable moment of the week: The fifth tagged fish of the season came to the net of John Wharrior from Gateshead who opted to fish the shaded south shore where he tempted his £200 prize winning fish on ledgered Powerbait pink eggs. This tagged fish was carrying two other hooks and traces showing it had snapped off from other anglers – emphasizing our recommendation that anglers ensure clutches are properly set and line is fresh and free from damage or abrasion – it may cost more than a fish to ignore this advice!

 

 

 

Best areas and flies: Good hatches of mayfly, black buzzers and grey dusters this week with hawthorn flies just starting to show and should also provide top water temptation in the coming days especially in western, more wooded and calmer areas of the reservoir. Both north and south shore bays as well as the Dam Wall are productive to lures such as a Cat’s Whisker or Dawson’s Olive which are ideal point flies. Smaller traditional wets such as Peter Ross, Soldier Palmer, Butchers or Zulu fished alone or on the dropper have also worked well.

 

 

 

Best areas and baits/lures: Both the north and south shore bays remain popular although can suffer excessive disturbance on busy days. All areas are fishing well with ledgered pink Powerbait and garlic eggs in demand. Ledger or swim feeder tactics are best methods with the north shore mid-section seeing consistent catches near feeder streams. Spinning with small Mepps is also very worthwhile as minnow shoals are being targeted by predatory trout.

Derwent Reservoir:

Size:  1,000 acres (405h), Max Depth 100 feet (31m) Sat Nav: DH8 9TT,Grid Ref: NZ029 518 ,Sat Nav: DH8 9TT 

Catch of the week: Richard Abbot had a brilliant day on the fly with a 22lb catch including a fish of 4lb 8oz

Memorable Moment of the week: Keith Forster had yet another brilliant day after catching 62 rainbows on his previous visit a week earlier. He managed nine rainbow this time and a 3lb 8oz perch which were all safely returned. His fish were taken next to the Tower on a mini Humungous and a mini Rosie Bell. 

 

Best areas and flies: Fly anglers are finding fish well spread around the reservoir and feeding well with lots of fly life to tempt fish to the surface. Black bettles, nymphs, mayfly and hawthorns are aplenty so imitating any of these could lead to some outstanding high water sport. The Tower, Meadow and Bay of Plenty have been the standout areas.

 

Best areas and baits / lures: During the fine weather the margins fished well with lots of fish taken by 10am. However, sport became a little harder in the heat of the day as the fish moved a little deeper. Lots of fish were taken on either Powerbait eggs or Mice-tails with anything orange or yellow working well. Mepps and Toby spinners are also working well and a float fished worm on a calm day or an evening can be a perfect method to catch fish near the surface.

 

Newsflash: We are adding another three tagged fish to this weeks stocking along with over 1,000 fish for the Bank Holiday weekend

Grassholme Reservoir:   

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

 

Catch of the week: Gary and Janet Embleton stood out from the crowd Saturday, on what was a very challenging day, weather wise. The couple managed to land 10 fish between them fishing half way between the top car park and pebble beach using float and ledgered pink Powerbait eggs with natural worm. Gary also managed three on the fly, all taken on a Dawson’s Olive.

 

 

 

Memorable Moment of the week: Dave Barratt landed four fish including the fish of the week: a cracking 6lb 4oz rainbow from the Dam Wall caught using a silver/blue Mepps spinner.

 

 

 

Best areas and flies: There has been an abundance of fly life on the surface of the water during the past week. Early evening hatches have brought fish to surface sipping flies from the top. Hawthorns are first out of the box this week and small cdc patterns when wind allows.

 

 

 

Best areas and baits / lures: Pebble beach and Easter Bay are holding good numbers of fish. Spinning has produced good catches this week with fish high in the water willing to chase small Mepps lures. Arctic pink Powerbait eggs fished with natural worm has brought plenty of fish to the net, mostly fished under a float.

 

 

 

Newsflash: On top of the five tagged fish already in Grassholme we will be stocking an extra one for the Bank Holiday weekend.

Hury:

Size: 125 acres (50h), Max Depth 90 feet (28m) ,Sat Nav: DL12 9UP ,Grid Ref: NY960 193                                         

 

Catch of the week: Andy Taylor,David Leeman and Sean Wheatley had a brilliant first visit to Hury Thursday catching and returning 42 fish between them, on what was a challenging days fishing, with bright sunshine making fish hard to tempt.

 

 

 

Memorable Moment of the week: Mr. R Connor spotted a rising fish right in the stream in Waterfall Bay. After about ten minutes and a few fly changes, he managed to get the fish to take a small size 16 fly which was the start of a productive day for Mr. Connor landing and returning a further seven.

 

 

 

Best areas and flies: Bright sunny days have made for some testing conditions, with early morning and evenings the best times to catch. Lots of hatches this week, so nymph fishing and dries (when not too bright), have been very productive with small black cdc patterns getting plenty of action.

 

 

 

Newsflash: More of Lartington’s finest to be stocked this week, ready for the Bank Holiday weekend.

Scaling Dam:

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

Catch of the week: Multiple anglers managed to catch their eight fish limits amongst which included; John Micklewright from Middlesbrough, Peter Harbottle from Stockton and Bill Dargue from Hartlepool.

 

Memorable Moment of the week: Ian Grand from Hartlepool is the star of the week again. Included in his eight fish limit was a superb 5lb 8oz rainbow making it the biggest of the season so far. Garlic Powerbait paste with a white Mice-tail was flavour of the day.

 

Best areas and flies: Fly anglers caught along the west end of the Dam Wall and in the east bay this week. Cat’s Whisker, Invicta, Ke-he and Butcher all proved successful.

 

Best areas and baits / lures: Chartreuse, dark green, orange and blue mango Powerbait paste, float fished worm and Dennett spinners have all been good. The west end has fished best although the east end has had some active days with anglers catching full limits at both ends.

 

Special message for the new week: The forecast for this week is looking pretty stable and consistent so the bank holiday weekend should be a cracker with another 300 fish to be stocked!
