Catch of the week: John Potts took this week’s largest fish at 4lb 9oz.The trout was taken during the Jack Charlton fishing comp from the boat.  

Memorable Moment of the week: Wednesday the annual Jack Charlton fishing competition took place at Kielder Waterside. The weather was kind to anglers and conditions were favourable apart from the bright sun, which no one had the heart to complain about! The competition was well supported and it was great to see some familiar faces back again for what has become a great date in the Kielder fishing calendar. The results are as follows:

Fontburn Reservoir:

Size: 87 acres (35h), Max Depth 80 feet (25m) Sat Nav: NE61 4PL ,Grid Ref: NZ040 935

Catch of the week: Jon Robinson continued his superb season with a brilliant eight fish haul Saturday. Jon’s catch tipped the scales to just under the 24lb mark, working hard all the way to take advantage of a shoal of fish who were feeding in and around the north shore bay. Jon was beaming as he weighed in and it was unsurprising given the quality stamp of his limit catch with four fish at over the 3lb mark and a top specimen at 4lb 10oz, the quality was outstanding!

 

Memorable moment of the week: It was nice to see Oscar Eraslan weigh this years top trout on Tuesday, a 6lb 4oz rainbow trout. Oscar is a regular afternoon and evening session man, who revels in taking advantage of the late evening rises and feeding shoals at dusk. He literally had the last laugh on Tuesday, patiently waiting for his superb trout until around 8pm. Oscar opted for Sunshine Yellow Powerbait paste, a ledger rig and a mid-length cast. Good enough to record the season’s top catch from his favoured spot in the south shore bay.

 

Best areas and flies: The Dam Wall continues to provide excellent fly action, as with the north shore bay. Some spectacular rises in these areas resulted in some superb returns throughout the week. Lure anglers continued to list Cat’s Whisker and Dawson’s Olive patterns amongst the top performers, with Kate McLaren, Hawthorn and Bibio providing the traditionalists with some tiptop rod action.

 

Best areas and baits/lures: Both the north and south shore bays continued to provide the most consistent returns, depending on wind direction. Worm and Powerbait combinations remained foremost as the week progressed, whilst small Mepps and Toby spinners also generated some decent returns.

Derwent Reservoir:

Size:  1,000 acres (405h), Max Depth 100 feet (31m) Sat Nav: DH8 9TT,Grid Ref: NZ029 518 ,Sat Nav: DH8 9TT 

Catch of the week: Derek Hodgson saved the best catch of the week for competition day at Derwent Saturday netting 20lb 4oz with several fish in the 3lb range and the biggest tipping the scales at 3lb 4oz. Derek was fishing in the bay near the Oak Tree casting just over the weeds where he found a large shoal of big fish!

 

Memorable Moment of the week: The Pure Fishing sponsored WaterAid Bank Master Competition Saturday saw anglers from all over the region take some great catches on both bait and fly. Heaviest catch for the bait was Derek Hodgson, heaviest catch for fly was Phil Green with over 17lb and best junior was Luke Ellison. Biggest fish of 3lb 5oz went to Lee Abbott.

 

Best areas and flies: Fish have been caught from all banks over the past few days with an array of tactics working well. The very best tactic has been a floating line just under the surface with small traditional wet flies such as a Bibio, Black Pennell or Black and Peacock Spider. Surface sport has also been good with dries such as a Daddy Long Legs or Hoppers twitched on the surface working well.

 

Best areas and baits / lures: Deeper water has been the most successful with bright, warm days pushing fish deep. Ledgered Gulp pink or Orange Salmon eggs have worked extremely well when combined with a feeder and trout pellets or Magic Dust. Best areas have been the Oak Tree and Dam Wall corner.

 

Newsflash: Saturday and Sunday 23, 24 June is the annual cycle race at Derwent reservoir. To avoid delays please arrive before 9am on both days. Both car parks on the Dam Wall will be closed although all banking remain open.

Grassholme Reservoir:   

Size: 140 acres (57h), Max Depth 120 feet (38m),Grid Ref: NY940 224,Sat Nav: DL12 0PW

 

Catch of the week: Andrew Parkin, fishing at the west end of Grassholme Saturday, landed a nice 7lb 8oz rainbowwhich was the heaviest fish of the week.

 

Memorable Moment of the week: Aiden Mullen aged 10 and his dad Brendan, who were fishing just past the jetty without a bite Saturday, moved around to the north bank and ended the day with six cracking rainbows, the best weighing in at 3lb 9oz.

 

Best areas and flies: The white post has been a good spot on fly with shoaling fish feeding from the surface on terrestrials, especially early evening. Hoppers and Cdc patterns have produced good catches.

 

Best areas and baits / lures: TheDam Wall and north bank close to the spill way have been hotspots with spinning again being the most productive method. Float fished natural worm has also caught plenty of fish with a medium to short trace attracting surface feeding trout.

 

Special message for the new week: Our annual Father’s Day competition will be held this coming Sunday 17 June, check out our Facebook page for more info and prizes.

Catch of the week: Derek Carr took the biggest fish of the season so far weighing in at 5lb 8oz along with his limit catch for the day.

 

Memorable Moment of the week: Mr. J Raw, after returning 11 rainbows on the popular catch and release ticket, caught a beautiful fully finned wild brown trout. The fish looked  around 1lb in weight and was safely returned, all caught on a small Olive Damsel.

 

Best areas and flies: The north bank has been excellent again with straight lining nymph methods bringing plenty of fish to the net. Brief heavy thundery showers cleared the air mid week and made way for some excellent top of the water fishing with an abundance of fly life to keep feeding trout happy.

 

Special message for the new week: New House Bay is an excellent place to start your visit, as temperatures rise fish seeking oxygen rich water tend to hold up in shoals in this picturesque location.

Catch of the week: On Sunday Jake Dale from Stokesley fished with ledgered worm and green PowerBait at the west end and netted eight rainbows including two lovely 3lb’ers.

 

Memorable Moment of the week: Charlie Clark from Middlesbrough fished on the jetty Saturday and after catching five rainbows was beginning to pack up for home when his last cast struck hard and fast, after a battle he landed a super 4lb rainbow to end his day with six.

 

Best areas and flies: With another week of fog plaguing the reservoir the conditions were not ideal for fly anglers. Roger Osborne from Redcar fished Wednesday and returned two rainbows at the dog leg tempting them with a Wickham’s and a Pheasant Tail Nymph.

 

Best areas and baits / lures: Overall the jetty and west end were the best areas although on certain days the fish seemed to be uninterested around most of the reservoir. Worm fished on a float or ledgered with a feeder with or without Powerbait was the most productive. Magic Dust and trout pellets worked best in feeders.

 

Special message for the new week: Apologies to those who came out to see the F.T.A team as the competition was cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. Another bumper stocking this week should keep anglers busy.

Catch of the week: On Sunday Jake Dale from Stokesley fished with ledgered worm and green PowerBait at the west end and netted eight rainbows including two lovely 3lb’ers.

 

Memorable Moment of the week: Charlie Clark from Middlesbrough fished on the jetty Saturday and after catching five rainbows was beginning to pack up for home when his last cast struck hard and fast, after a battle he landed a super 4lb rainbow to end his day with six.

 

Best areas and flies: With another week of fog plaguing the reservoir the conditions were not ideal for fly anglers. Roger Osborne from Redcar fished Wednesday and returned two rainbows at the dog leg tempting them with a Wickham’s and a Pheasant Tail Nymph.

 

Best areas and baits / lures: Overall the jetty and west end were the best areas although on certain days the fish seemed to be uninterested around most of the reservoir. Worm fished on a float or ledgered with a feeder with or without Powerbait was the most productive. Magic Dust and trout pellets worked best in feeders.

 

Special message for the new week: Apologies to those who came out to see the F.T.A team as the competition was cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. Another bumper stocking this week should keep anglers busy.
