  • Fishing report 

    Fishing report – 22 May 2017

    Sutton Bingham reservoir


    Number of trout caught: 300
    Rod average: 4
    Best rainbow: Mr D. Gibb - 4lb 8oz
    Best bag: Mr D. Gibb - 16lb 3oz

    Another fantastic week of fishing here at Sutton Bingham even in moderate to poor conditions (bright sun and high winds). We have had a rod average of 4 with many bags averaging over 3lb a fish! The water temperatures are now starting to creep up, meaning the morning and evenings will become the most productive times in the coming weeks when the water is slightly cooler. It has been noticeable that on days where we have had bright sun the fish have just pushed out into deeper water, then move back in later in the day. The fish have predominantly come from the south bank as most anglers have fished here but there are also fish by the stump on the lodge bank and north corner. Anglers have caught well on buzzers and diawl bachs fished on a floating line but have had to fish a gold head on the point if nymph fishing or drop down to an intermediate line with blobs and boobies through the middle of the day.

    West Pond


    Number of trout caught: 22
    Number of double trout: 3
    Rod average: 1.83
    Rainbow of the week: Mr M Weaver - 10lb 4oz
    Bag of the week: Mr K Parsons - 27lb 9oz (four fish)

    A quiet week angler wise on the west pond, with anglers finding mixed fishing. Those that have caught well have fished minkies and snakes on intermediate lines, and small buzzers and diawl bachs fished on a floating line, with a slow figure of eight retrieve. Most anglers have caught their fish up near the river mouth along the weed line. Other fish have been taken from the middle section of the railway bank and the boat dock.
