Fishing Report for Week Ending Sunday 9th September


At last the fishing is showing signs of improvement, with some anglers catching up to 6 trout. The trout are also spreading out across the water and are not just in the Main Bowl

Rod average for the week, based on returns is still low but we expect this to improve rapidly as the water cools further. 3,200 trout were stocked this week and 2,600 more will be stocked by 12th September although many of the fish being caught this week appear to be trout which were previously stocked rather than the ones that were stocked this week

Best areas for boat fishing have been between Dunsters and Tinkers and the Main Bowl. however a small number of fish are being caught by bank anglers from the Dam Wall

Important Reminder

Another reminder that the annual Grand Max fly fishing competition takes place on Wednesday 19th September. Any method fishing is not available but some boats are available by prior booking for fly anglers only
