Kielder Water: First Competition a great success

 

 

 

On Saturday Kielder hosted the first three way charity boat competition between Northumbrian Water, Forestry Commission and the Environment Agency. Competitors were met with overcast and wet conditions, with the wind steadily increasing over the day. Fish were really well spread around the reservoir, with eventual winners being Northumbrian Water who managed an average of 3.9 fish per person. The best catch of the match went to Northumbrian Water’s Peter Pattinson with 8 fish and the top boat also going to Peter and his boat partner Ray Fothergill. The largest fish of the match went to Eddy Forster with a cracking fish just short of 3lb. A huge well done to everyone who helped to raised £500 for the Great North Air Ambulance. This week’s largest fish was taken by Mr Parker who landed two fish of 4lb on Green Powerbait near Hawkhope.

Fontburn ReservoirCharlie steals the show

 

 

 

It has been another week of mixed weather with wetter cooler days interspersed with fine summer days. Persistent and at times blustery winds gave challenging conditions however; those fishing into the westerly’s from the dam wall in particular recording the standout catches. Quality featured in the returns this week with 18 anglers recording specimen fish above 3lbs at the scales. Bait angler’s Josh Derbyshire and Albert Hall recorded the week’s top two individual catches. Both limit catches were taken from the dam wall with ledger rigs and trout of 4lb 8oz and 4lb 2oz featured in their catch. Star of the week is 6 year old Charlie Swinney from Thropton fishing with his guardian Paul Forster near to the north shore bay. Charlie recorded his first ever catch weighing in 5 quality rainbows the best being a fully finned 3lb 8oz beauty. A great catch from a first time angler that was tempted to the hook with a ledger rig and orange PowerBait eggs. As we near the start of the school summer holidays we look forward to many more of these headline catches featuring delighted young anglers.

Derwent Reservoir:Gary lands £200 trout

 

 

 

After a wet start to the week the fishing really took off mid week with Mr S McMurray netting the best fish of the week at 7lb 3oz taken on fly from Cronkley. Other fly anglers reported seeing fish rising in large numbers at times and regular Paul Bradley took full advantage netting 19 quality rainbows in a session. Paul returned later in the week landing 8 fish for 17lb 8oz, he also returned a further 5. Another fly angler taking advantage of the moment caught and returned 24 using a home tied mini Zonker from the North bank. Garry Thompson from Stanley hooked and landed a fish on his second cast on Sunday on a cut throat Zonker from the spillway. The rainbow was one our blue tagged rainbows winning a delighted Gary £200. Fishing friends W Carr and L Wilkin fished together beside the stream on the south side with Mr Carr recording an 8 fish limit for 16lb 8oz whilst his friend only managed a single fish, proving it can be a funny old game. Ledgering remains the top bait method although more fish are starting to be caught in the upper water layers using float fished worm with a single pink PowerBait egg, as long as the cloud cover remains. A few more fish have been caught in the Pow Hill area this week although the shallows to the left remain quiet. This week sees the first of five lorry loads of quality spring water reared rainbows from one of the very best suppliers in the country so the current excellent sport should continue over the summer holiday period.

Grassholme Reservoir: Simon in Hopper Heaven

 

 

 

This week the wind changed back to a more favourable westerly direction and sport really started to take off. Anglers who chose the option of fishing light and trying different methods reaped the rewards. James Fletcher from Durham walked to Brock Scar and caught 5 fish using Orange PowerBait eggs on a ledger. James then caught a further 3 fish on a 15gram Toby spinner in Easter Bay as he walked back down the reservoir, his best weighed in at 3lb. Michael Smith had a successful day on the north bank fishing with White Mice-tails under a Bubble float on the drift. Michael caught his 8 fish limit in four hours for a total weight of 15lb 8oz. There have also been number of catch limits taking from the West end car park down to Pebble Beach on the North side of the reservoir on a variety of methods. Simon Sheldon visiting from London caught 4 fish on a Credit Cruncher and returned a further two fish. Simon fished well into the evening and had great sport on the surface using a Black Hopper; he also reported loosing more fish at the net and thoroughly enjoyed a great evenings sport.

Hury Reservoir: Top of the Water Treat

 

 

 

Bright and blustery conditions this week certainly did not deter anglers from turning up in good numbers and who can blame them the way Hury has been fishing lately. Ivan Jopling from Frosterley had an excellent afternoon using Daddies, Ivan caught 4 fish on a credit cruncher and returned a further 5 fish in just three hours. Ivan fished from the South Shore and his fish weighed an average of 2lb each. Andy Spencer and Mr B. Wood had a good days sport on catch and release permits. Andy caught 7 fish with the heaviest weighing 4lb however, he was trumped on the day by Mr. Wood who caught and released 10 fish with his heaviest also weighing in at 4lb. Both anglers were taking fish from the surface using Hoppers and Daddies. On windier days lures have also been seen to be working well this week with a Dawson’s Olive or Orange Fritz on an intermediate line.

All round action

 

 

 

It’s been a challenging week with no two days alike as to where and when the fish would appear. The best results came as the day began to cool in the late afternoon with trout eager to come onto the feed in various locations.

 

A variety of cocktail baits have been effective this week with both worm and maggot tipped with Powerbait being the most popular whilst spun lures had their moments as well. George Goldsborough from Redcar got the week off to a good start catching 8 rainbows on the Jetty. Alan Ellison from Whitby began his day on the south side having no luck during the morning he moved round to the west end after lunch. Alan finished with 8 rainbows all caught on maggot and white speckled Powerbait egg cocktail baits. S and J Mills from Middlesbrough were the first to cash in on the east end action fishing near the rocks both landing 8 rainbows each. Fly anglers Paul Sedgwick and G Sedgwick both from Middlesbrough had a great afternoon fishing with Black Hoppers and Dawson’s Olive in the east bay, catching 4 rainbows and returning another 2 each. The best trout of the week at 3lb 2oz was tempted by Garlic Powerbait one of 7 rainbows caught by Peter Floyd from Ugthorpe for a total weight of 13lb 2oz at the West end of the reservoir.

Alan finished with 8 rainbows all caught on maggot and white speckled Powerbait egg cocktail baits. S and J Mills from Middlesbrough were the first to cash in on the east end action fishing near the rocks both landing 8 rainbows each.

Whittle Dene                            

34 rods fished the three water complex this week with the best catches coming from the northern and lower match lake. Most of the weights are being made up of roach and skimmers. Pole and Waggler tactics are taking the best catches with maggot and chopped worm the top baits.

 

Please note we would like more information from visiting anglers to aid fishery management and help others who fish the complex. This week only one angler out 34 filled in the catch return.

Lockwood Beck

We have had a great start to the year and as the weeks progress the catch recordings get better and better with pleasure anglers catching some goods nets of roach and perch up to 20lbs. Anglers have also remarked on the quality of the roach as pristine with some weighing over a 1lb each. Perch are also featuring in the catches with individual specimens weighing nearly 2lb 8oz. One angler recently a catch a 54 roach and 43 perch.The hot spots up to now have been the Valve Tower on the dam wall and The Concrete Block on the west shore bank. A recent competition organised through Angler’s Choice was a great success with a close call between 1st and 3rd place. For information on the next match please call Dale at Anglers Choice on 01642 899288
