  • Fishing report

    Fishing report – 14 May 2018

    Sutton Bingham reservoir


    Number of fish caught: 424
    Rod average: 3.1
    Best fish: Mr P Jones - 6lb 4oz (R/B)
    Best bag: Mr T Clark - 13lb 4oz (five fish)
    What to try: Another fantastic week of fishing we’ve had here at Sutton Bingham, with fish well spread across the lake. We are still getting reasonable hatches of buzzers and also have a few hawthorn still around. Bank anglers have caught well from the lodge bank, the South corner, the North corner and the orchard end of the North Bank. Boat anglers have had plenty of action on the airline, the causeway and in front of the lodge. Buzzers, diawl bachs and crunchers have taken most of the fish this week with a few still falling to lures and some to dries.

    West Pond


    Number of fish caught: 26
    Rod average: 1.04
    Best fish: Mr A Strawbridge 10lb 8oz Rainbow
    Best bag: Mr M Bulgin 27lb 8oz (three fish)


    A better week on the West Pond for most, although some anglers are still finding the fishing to be difficult. We have started to see some weed growth around the South Bank over the past fortnight so waders are a must in that area from the bank. The North Bank has produced fish around the boat jetty and the middle section. Boat anglers have caught well drifting through the middle of the lake. Fish small flies such as buzzers and diawl bachs for the best results.

    Clatworthy reservoir


    Number of fish caught: 337
    Rod average: 2.4
    Best fish: A 13lb 4oz rainbow and three fish for 25lb 10oz


    This last week the hawthorn have been making their way onto the water causing some fantastic surface sport, along with the masses of gnats gathered up near the tree lines. The black hopper is causing some vicious surface takes with the drifting buzzers also doing well, the drift past Northern Woods and across Dudderidge has seen some great action with rainbows and the wild browns both coming to the boats.
    What to try: Bank anglers still favouring Westcott Bay and Rowes End with a mix of tactics from drifting buzzers to intermediate lines and lures, the damsel fly patterns still proving to do well along with cats’ whiskers and tadpole.

    Hawkridge reservoir


    Number of fish caught: 182 (2 tiger, 6 blue, 9 sparctic trout)
    Rod average: 2.36
    Best fish: Mr D Tomkins - 10lb 8oz rainbow, Mr B Mercer - 9lb 5oz rainbow, Dave Hokin - 8lb 6oz rainbow, Mr R Biss - 8lb rainbow and Martin Hillman - 5lb 6oz sparctic.

    Anglers are recommended to try Black Buzzer, Cats Whisker and Blue Flash Damsel.
