Fishing Report 8th December 2018
Lakes open 7 days a week.
Catch rates at 3 trout per angler (boat catch rates much higher). A tinge of colour is present due to the rain.
Best methods either nymphs under a dry (or indicator), or a lure on an Intermediate or medium sink line. Best areas are on the dam with the boats getting good catches.
Purists can try dry flies such as 'Klinkhammers' imitating the tiny midges hatching. Tip : fish the edge of, or on, ripply water for more consistent sport.
Note on 27th January 2019 we will be hosting the Angling Trust Small Waters fly fishing qualifier. So if you fancy trying to fish for the Small Waters England Team give it a go. Phone me or go onto the Angling Trust Website for more details.
Cafe closed, however the fishing lodge is open for tea and coffee.
Feel free to phone for up to date details.
