Autumn Sport gets going

gh autumn26th September. Trout fishing has now picked up markedly on the stillwaters with Ghyll Head, High Newton and Bigland set for some excellent autumn sport.

Stocking has resumed on all three fisheries and will continue through to the end of October. As usual the autumn stockings will include a few end of season monsters just to add a bit of extra spice. At this time of year most methods will produce the goods but the best sport is still likely to be off the surface. Calmer days will see fish smutting  - calling for small flies and fine leaders. Emergers and small buzzers should also be very effective.

Trout will be moving into shallower areas and foraging around decaying weedbeds for shrimp and nymphs - slim pheasant tails with a touch of silver and red are good searching patterns for these cruising fish.

Another cracker from Ghyll Head

23.05.17.  Scott Patterson had this lovely 7lb rainbow from Ghyll Head last week on a damsel. The quality of fish on all the clubs waters has been exceptional this year and has included a much higher proportion of bigger fish.

Ghyll Head

25.4.17.  Day ticket angler Mark Forsyth from Keswick had this superb rainbow from Ghyll Head over the last weekend. Mark estimated the fish at 7-8lbs. Despite the cold conditions hatches of buzzer are bringing fish up and all areas of the reservoir are holding trout. With temperatures finally set to rise after the weekend sport should get even better.
