Fishing report

Fishing report - 22 September 2021

Sutton Bingham reservoir and the West Pond

There were eight anglers fishing last week and only three returns. One of these managed to land a fish weighing 1.8lbs.

Both the bank and boat are still struggling with the water temperature still sitting at 19.8 degrees and with the reservoir dropping in level this will not improve.

Two anglers fished the West Pond from the boat and after several hours without a take they almost gave up hope but in the closing half hour after a long struggling day caught a rainbow of 6 lbs.

Apart from the fishing being hard it’s always a nice place to be to chill out and unwind regardless of catching a fish.

Hawkridge reservoir

Fish caught 25
Rod average 1
Number of returns 25

The fishing from the bank remains difficult at Hawkridge because of the amount of weed growth. Boat fishing is still recommended for the best chance of success.

Clatworthy reservoir

Clatworthy has been fishing really well recently, with fish coming to a variety of methods. Daddy long legs pulled through the surface has seen some impressive takes, small nymphs and buzzers are still catching well in Rowes end and Westcott bay.

Boats are picking up some of the better fish in the dam area, and Dudderidge.

Fry patterns are also working well, fished into the margins.

Fish caught 107
Rod average 2.2
