Fontburn Reservoir: Steven Guard Takes £400 tagged fish on spinner

 

 

 

Conditions remained conducive for sport during a largely settled week. Light overnight frosts soon gave way to clear days with gentle breezes, making the banks a lovely place to spend a sunny autumn day. The reservoir remained a couple of feet below top water with temperature consistently between eight and nine degrees.

 

Heaviest catch of the week was made by Jimmy Hui from the north shore bay using his favoured set up of feeder with Magic Dust teamed with a variety of PowerBait and Micetail hook-baits, changed frequently to keep the scent fresh. Jimmy signed out his catch of eight rainbows totalling 14lb for a rewarding day. Fish Of The Week was a 3lb 8oz cracker landed by John Stobbart from his favoured swim near the north shore burn on ledgered garlic PowerBait paste. However, the star of the show this week was undoubtedly Steven Guard from Blyth who opted to make his way toward the lightly fished west end of the north shore to make a four fish catch weighing in at 7lb 12oz in under four hours. Included in his catch was a highly prized tagged fish, taken on a spinner and earning lucky Steven a bumper bonus £400 cash prize, just in time for Christmas! With a dozen tagged fish still waiting to be caught why not have a go before we close for the year at the end of November, as the next tagged fish to be caught will also pay out a £400 prize from the sweepstake, not a bad way to end your season!

Derwent Reservoir: Lilly Green no more...

 

 

 

The last teaching ‘Try it Day’ lesson was held Sunday and nine year old Lilly Green hooked and landed her first trout under the guidance of our instructors. The successful method was a ledgered red/natural PowerBait Mice-tail fished on a short nine inch trace and after missing an earlier bite Lilly was over the moon to have a healthy tea in the net. The hard frosts have made netting a fish or two more challenging and anglers need to adopt slightly different tactics other than their standard set up and young Lilly’s success would indicate that fish are very close to the reservoir bed. Mr. P Morris had the best fish of the week at 4lb. Hopefully a few milder days will see the fish in a more willing mood to move off the bottom and catches increase. Fly anglers should consider using a blob / lure twitched along slowly on a sinking line.

Grassholme Reservoir:   Fish bays for best days

 

Large parts of the reservoir have been under fished this past month and visiting anglers have found it hard in popular spots that have produced fish throughout the year. Travelling light and keeping on the move should produce some decent catches especially on the north bank. Mr. F Powell took four fish from Pebble Beach Wednesday along with the biggest fish of the week; a 3lb 7oz rainbow taken on pink PowerBait eggs. All his fish were taken deep and far out and all in a short space of time. This has been the case since November arrived with fish mostly reluctant to feed during the morning and then becoming more active during the afternoon, as water temperature rise a little. Milder weather looks like it should continue through this week, so hopefully we should see some better returns from anglers as fish try to feed up for winter.

Hury: The Wright Stuff

 

 

 

Jeff Wright shone where others struggled this week, netting six fish during his visit, showing that there is still some cracking sport to be had even this late in the year. Jeff, a regular at Hury, took full advantage of a shoal of stationery resident fish at Reedy Point, moving up and down the bank, taking fish at regular intervals throughout the day whilst ledgering various colours of PowerBait eggs. Mr. G Ferguson took the biggest fish of the week; a nice 3lb rainbow. The happiest angler of the week  David Wentworth from Stockton who had an enjoyable first visit on Saturday taking four trout, two fin perfect wild Baldersdale brownies (safely returned) and after discovering Hury had a head of roach he reduced his tackle setup to target them, taking 16 using maggot on a size 14 hook which made his day. Hopefully water temperatures will remain high this week and keep fish on the lookout for food.

Scaling Dam: Frosty

With a frosty cold snap most mornings giving way to bright sunny afternoons. Changing temperatures regularly has kept the fish out in deeper waters so long casts were required to be successful.  Ian Pearson from Redcar tried a few hours fishing the jetty area then decided to move to the south shore at the east end of the reservoir for a change. This worked perfectly as he caught three rainbows which he tempted with a worm and PowerBait cocktail on a ledger rig. John Wilky from Middlesbrough decided to spend a few hours around lunchtime fishing the jetty area and netted himself a rainbow using a ledgered yellow Mice-tail. The next day he decided to try the same spot again without any luck so he moved to the east end of the reservoir and caught two rainbows again using a Mice-tail but added a small amount of PowerBait paste to the hook this time.
