Good fishing on all waters. Fish holding at 1-2ft down in the water, so floating lines and nymphing still working best. Good Mayfly action at the moment with overcast warm weather. More brown trout have been stocked this week into the lakes and rivers.
157 fish caught to the week ending 21st May with a good number of large double figure fish taken. Joe Jackson had the largest at 12lb 4oz taken at Vale End on a Mayfly, Ian McCandish had a 12lb 2oz rainbow also from Vale End, A.Buck had a 12lb rainbow on an orange blob form Powdermills and Steve Bull had a 11lb 8oz rainbow also from Powdermills. Also Terry Cooling had a 11lb 3oz rainbow at Weston.
The river beats opened up on the 1st April and coincided with some beutiful weather which encouraged anglers out and some nice wild and stocked fish were caught, mainly on nymphs. The new section of river at Vale End fished nicely with some fine trout taken like the pic below of a stunning wild brown trout.
Next Teach IN session – Sat 14th October at Vale End.

The fishing details for Powder Mills, Vale End, Weston and Park have been moved to the report page allowing you to see all the latest news on a single page whilst freeing up space on the home page.
The fish are still fairly high up in the water for the time of year so floating lines will work but maybe go to an intermediate line if it gets very cold. Small imitative patterns such as PTN and GRHE are still working well but expect the fish to become more active and aggressive in the cooler weather which will see small lures working well such as damsel patterns in various styles, cats whisker and fritz patterns.

Floating lines and more imitative patterns such as Buzzers and small nymphs now coming into their own rather than fishing the depths with the winter goldhead favourites.
90 fish taken w/e 21st May.
