Fishing Report for Week Ending Thursday 18th October

This week has seen a great improvement in the fishing at Bewl Water. Most anglers are catching and there were very few nil returns. Rod average, based on returns, was 2.45

The trout are very high in the water and fly anglers have been using floating or intermediate lines

3,600 rainbows have been stocked in the past 8 days, 1,800 on Thursday 11th October and another 1,800 on Wednesday 17th October

Best areas for boat fishing have been Chingley, The Main Bowl and Bewl Straight up to Dunsters and Hatherells

Bank fishing is still difficult. The deeper water near the Dam and Chingley are the best places to try. Successful flies have been lures such as Minkies and Cat's Whiskers


A reminder that winter predator fishing starts on November 1st (boats only)
