  • Fishing report – 18 September 2018

    Sutton Bingham reservoir

    For advice on the current fishing conditions, please call the ranger on 01935 872389.

    Hawkridge reservoir

    Fish caught: 233 (one tiger, three spartic)
    Rod average: 3.14
    What to try: Floating/ intermediate lines with bibio, CDC, buzzers and cat’s whisker are the most common flies used at the moment.

    Clatworthy reservoir

    Clatworthy continues to fish well from the banks and the boats. Floating lines and dry flies or small nymphs have been working well. Some anglers have been having success on intermediate lines with black lures. Syndercombe Bank is the hotspot this time of year which is seeing little footfall. It’s a 10-15 minute walk from the lodge carpark, or you could use the self-service permit hut accessible by car from Browns Lane.

    Trevor Davies caught the fish of the week, a beautiful 8lb 4oz rainbow taken on a small Diawl Bach. Rod Newton has been catching some brilliant bags these past few weeks from the boat in Westcott Bay, last week landing five fish for 17lb 8oz.

    With the water levels now very low, it’s a good idea to explore the shoreline which is inaccessible on high water. A few regular anglers have been roving the banks and catching some resident fish. Keep moving to find the fish as the low levels and angler pressure are causing the fish to move.
    We are seeing good numbers of Daddy Long Legs, which the trout have noticed. Try a foam Daddy twitched on the surface to entice a take.
