    Durleigh reservoir – August 2017 report

    Durleigh fished very well in August especially at the beginning of the month. The shallows produced some good results for carp anglers such as Ian Pike and Scott Hooper fishing over the old road. The canal inlet, lawns, lifebuoy swim and the dam wall also produced some good catches. Most fish were taken at range, as the carp seem to be holding out in the middle of the lake. The last couple of weeks was noticeably quite for carp with just a few being netted at last knockings. Cory McKay took the best fish, a lovely 28lb common.

    The silver fishing has been excellent all through August. The bream are moving toward the deeper water and coming from around 80yrds. The far side seems to be producing the better weights (from lifebuoy back to the dam wall) but the lawns and race hut are also very good. You can catch skimmers and roach at around 40yrds with an open feeder or loads of small stuff on the whip or pole.

    The annual four-day fishing match, known locally as the Durleigh festival, took place just after the bank holiday and once again produced some excellent results. Andy Batstone took the honours with an impressive 67kg. Andy was always going to be hard to beat after catching 46kg of bream on the second day but his mate and colleague, Adam Palmer, had a good go at it coming in 2nd place with 63kg. 3rd place went to Pete Werakzo with 58kg and 4th was Paul Purchase with 55kg.
