3rd Nov 2019 - Fishing Report W/E 3rd November 2019

Some continued cooler conditions, have provided the anglers with some ‘cracking’ fishing sessions this week. Some of our double figured fish have also been landed this week, the biggest was a 15lb 4oz Brownie from Coe Crag which was safely returned by Ali Spours, caught on a floating line and a Blue and Black Buzzer. We have also had our biggest tiger trout to date caught this week; one of our regular anglers, Mick Brown from Bedlington landed a magnificent 9lb Tiger, which was also safely returned. Fish have still be taken relatively high in the water for this time of year, a few anglers even having some success on small Dries. Other anglers are finding Lures fished on Intermediate lines very productive.

We were very pleased to be placed 19th in the ‘Top 100 Stillwater’s’ for 2019 in the Trout Fisherman magazine, it’s a great achievement for the fishery.
