Kielder Water: More doubles!

 

 

 

A pair of 12lb rainbow trout were stocked on Thursday at Kielder Waterside, as an added bonus, one of these whoppers was tagged! He have added another tagged fish as the previous tagged fish was caught, but as the angler had not entered the sweepstake this third tagged fish has been released to replace it. James Mandy landed the heaviest fish of the week; a rainbow trout of 4lb 6oz caught from the slipway at Hawkhope on PowerBait. Michael Sinkinson caught his eight fish limit, also from Hawkhope Slipway for a total weight of 16lb 8oz. Boat angler Ian Hamilton had two rainbows of 3lb and 3lb 1oz from Needs Hill. He landed both on a minnow pattern. His total catch was an impressive 18lb 4oz. Martin Watson recorded the heaviest catch weight of the week from the bank at Gordon’s Walls (north of Hawkhope car park) with eight rainbows for a weight of 19lb 4oz.

Fontburn ReservoirRising star Kacy Triumphs in tough conditions

 

 

 

Sunshine and showers were again the predominant conditions keeping water temperatures high and levels close to the top-water mark. Evening hatches were prolific this week providing awesome sport for any anglers staying back after 6pm, when the reservoir truly comes to life at this time of year as fish feed aggressively on the surface or begin preying on fry and minnows in the margins. Regulars Gerry and Irene McKever were enjoying the impressive spectacle from the north shore burn, with five rainbows totalling 9lb 12oz already brought to the net, when the breeze dropped and an onslaught of midgies ended play on Sunday. William Anderson fishing opposite on the south shore bay topped off a six fish catch with the Fish Of The Week – a 4lb rainbow taken on ledgered green PowerBait. Eleven year old Kacy Halliwell earns a special mention for her catch of five rainbows totalling 9lb 4oz caught near the north shore point during warm sunny conditions while many, far more experienced anglers, struggled to locate the fish. Kacy got her tactics spot on and was rewarded with a 3lb 2oz beauty to top off her catch. Other notable catches this week were recorded by Mr. E Metcalfe and Mr. L Ellis with six rainbows totalling 9lb and seven rainbows for 9lb 8oz respectively.

Derwent Reservoir: Rae of light!

 

 

 

Another unpredictable week although the sport has began to slowly improve as cooler nights signify the beckoning autumn. The Dam Wall is one area which produced some consistent catches throughout the week as the deeper water continues to harbour larger quantities of much bigger fish. This is especially the case on an evening when the Dam area has come alive with hatching flies from the block work and a feeding frenzy has ensued. Any anglers targeting these rising fish had success on both fly and multi bait as Chris Munro and his son can vouch taking four fish on a credit cruncher permit in quick succession late in the evening midweek. Weekend anglers also saw better catches with the south shore from the Dam to the second fence producing good sport. The youngsters have been in top form with eight year old Steven Rae from Hamsterly Mill landing a cracking 3lb rainbow from this area using ledgered rainbow PowerBait paste. Six year old Ava and 10 year old Ben Fletcher from Consett shared four between them fishing next to the second fence Saturday as heavy showers seemed to encourage the fish into shallower water to feed. It’s brilliant to see the next generation getting stuck in, well done from Derwent Ranger team!

 

 

 

PLEASE NOTE – we have an outstanding balance of nine tagged fish in the reservoir at the moment! Good luck

Grassholme Reservoir: Big fish keep biting!

 

             

 

With a mixed offering of weather conditions this week some may be forgiven to think fishing would be hard, but quite the opposite. Whilst on a days fishing trip with his dad Gary Hall, five year old Charlie Hall landed a fish of a lifetime; a whopping 12lb rainbow and this was one of an eight fish catch limit with a combined weight 25lb 8oz. Mr. J Temple was delighted with his eight fish catch limit which he achieved by 9am while fishing Easter Bay. Not to be out done fishing comrade Billy Mckenna also landed an eight fish catch limit as did Mr. R Watson whilst fishing the Dam Wall. Mr. E Butterfield enjoyed his visit to Grassholme with a superb eight fish catch limit. Mr. D Hetherington had a superb days sport landing seven fish with one rainbow weighing in at a very respectable 4lb. Many of the fish taken have been attracted by PowerBait ledgered in conjunction with a swim feeder filled with Magic Dust. Fly anglers have come in to their own, especially on an evening as the weather eased and hatches began to appear all around the margins thus helping the fly anglers locate the risng fish. Anglers who like to spin have also had some exceptional sport as the fish appear to be feeding in the shallow margins when over cast conditions allow on terrestrial life and minnows thus coming into range for the angler opting to use small Mepps and Toby spinners

With weather conditions dictating the most productive method fly fishing anglers have had to adapt methods and tactics. Mr W Bruce had an amazing day connecting with 20 trout and returning all safely to fight another day, all fish fell to a muddler. Regular visitor Derrick Carr was delighted when he fished on Tuesday and took an eight fish catch limit for a combined weight 16lb 8oz then returned on Thursday and landed another six pristine rainbows. Mr. P Baxendale had a really good days sport tempting six quality fish with one of the fish being a 2lb 8oz brown trout, all were returned safely to the water. Anglers reported a lot of activity on an evening when conditions were suitable and hatches began to occur spurring fish into a feeding frenzy and allowing anglers who proffer to fish more traditional methods the chance to put there skills to the test. Yet again Reedy Point produced some really fine sport as did the Boil. As the fish come closer to the margins seeking terrestrial fly life and minnows anglers are advised to fish with stealth and fish the margins before going any where near the waters edge as this can produce some exceptional sport. A Cat’s Whisker and Dawson’s Olive are still the most productive lures and small black dries and daddies appear to tempting many a good fish.

The week began with a great start on Monday for Richard Warburton from Redcar and Charlie Clark from Middlesbrough. They were both fishing at the east end of the reservoir with ledgered worm and spring green Power Bait and both ending their day with eight rainbows each. Meanwhile opposite the lodge Craig Husband from Lingdale caught yet another eight rainbows this time using ledgered orange and cheese flavoured Power Bait. Tuesday poured down all day non stop which did not hinder Malcolm Mitchell from Middlesbrough thoroughly enjoying his days fly fishing working his way along the moor side and finishing in the east bay catching eight rainbows in total and returning five of them. The east end remained the most productive area throughout most of the week although Ken Woodward from Middlesbrough had success at the west end of the Dam catching four rainbows on a black and green Mepps style spinner. Also on Sunday Anthony Trainor and Lee Bailey both from Stockton found the perfect spot on the south shore moor side both catching their eight fish limit on ledgered spring green Power Bait.
