Monthly Fishery Report

March 2018

March was either very cold with plenty of snow or wet! Not the best conditions but we still had some anglers brave the horrid weather and we even had some photographs of fish caught in the snow. Although the weather was rather unpleasant the fish didn’t seem to mind and plenty. Most fish were caught blind casting or casting to movement but some were stalked by those who persevered in the challenging light conditions we have at this time of the year.

The sport has been hectic at times and some days saw fish hitting flies as soon as they landed on the water. David and Joel Young proved how switched on the fish were by taking 60 fish between them over three days – the highlight being Joel’s first Brown Trout that spun the scales to a whopping 9lb 8oz! James Maidment paid us a coiple of visits while we had snow and caught Tigers to 4lb 12oz and a couple of Browns along with a few Rainbows and a Blue. The Tiger James caught was the best marked Tiger that has been caught it looked superb against the snow! Steve Perry’s cautious approach resulted in a cracking Brown of over 5lb and Mr Allen had a superb Brown of 7lb 12oz. Mr Brookwell had a successful trip taking two Tiger Trout and an Arctic Char, season rod Sam Parry had the biggest Tiger so far from the fishery with a 6lb fish and Mr Cousin had a lovely 6lb 8oz Rainbow. Aaron House had Browns of 4lb and 5lb and Mr Evans and Mr Rescorle both had Tigers as part of their bag. Brian, Mr Rothwell and John Patten all caught Char. Ian Randall had an immaculate 11lb Rainbow and over a few trips regular Alan Drewitt had Rainbows of 7lb 8oz, 9lb and 11lb 4oz and three Browns up to 8lb 8oz with the latter in torrential Rain!

Top fly’s for the March were much the same as last month with lures such as cats whiskers, appetisers, humongous, damsels and montanas taking the majority of fish but after seeing pressure through the mornings a change to smaller nymphs and buzzers kept the bites coming. The Arctic Char were mainly tempted on red or pink flys.

That’s all for this month but keep an eye on our facebook page for up to date catches and information about the Fishery.
