  • Fishing report 

    Fishing report – 16 October 2017

    Sutton Bingham reservoir and the West Pond

    Sutton Bingham reservoir has now closed. The West Pond will reopen on 1 November to 3 December 2017. 

    Hawkridge reservoir


    Rainbow trout caught: 88
    Tiger trout caught: 3
    Brown trout caught: 10
    Arctic char caught: 1 

    Rod average: 1.5 
    The last week of the season at Hawkridge fished went well with P Manning landing the largest fish of the week weighing 9lbs 12oz.

    Please note the season ends 15 October 2017.

    Clatworthy reservoir

    Rainbow trout caught: 110
    Brown trout caught: 8
    Rod average: 1.8

    Fish of the week: Phil Giles - 8lb 8oz
    Biggest bag: Ed Trickett - four fish for 15lb 6oz

    Plenty of action to be had in Westcott Bay, from the bank or boat. The fish are podded up in this area and are holding right on the surface. Mini lures, minkie, zonker will produce some fantastic action, a 8lb leader is recommended if fishing with droppers as double hook-ups have been common this week. Late morning/afternoons have been the most productive, once it has warmed up a little. Daddy longlegs, hopppers and CDC emergers have been effective if targeting rising fish. Fish are feeding very tight to the margins, so we advise to fish these areas first before wading in.

    Durleigh reservoir (September report)

    September has proved to be quieter than expected as the autumn is usually the best time of the year for fishing. The carp have not shown in the numbers of past years and are still being caught around last knockings.

    Phil Whiterod organised a carp session on the far bank on 24 Sunday but not one fish was caught which was a bit surprising to say the least! Still, some anglers did okay. Scott Hooper was top rod catching just over twenty fish over four weeks that included a 27lb 4oz common taken from the far side dam wall. Mick Landers caught his UK PB from the race hut on the 22nd landing a cracking 33lb mirror on Larry’s. On the 19th Mark and Den Richards fished the lawns and caught five twenties between them and on the 15th Lee Bigwood fished his first ever session at Durleigh and caught two mirrors weighing in at  21lb and 23lbs.

    The silvers are still going well especially the bream. Roach can be caught close in on the whip with better quality taken on the feeder. The bream are still a fair way out and the method feeder is still favourite for 5lb plus fish but the open feeder will catch all day long at 50 yards. The best area is probably the lawns unless targeting big bream which are tending to hold up in the deeper water.
