With the hot weather the fishing has certainly slowed down slightly but still 432 fish have been caught over the last two weeks. The best fishing in the hot weather has been at Vale End and Weston at Wood Lodge and Kingfisher pools. As well as fishing the correct areas in the hot weather it’s also important to fish at the best times which will be early morning and late evening. As well as this you may want to think about your approach to fishing with smaller flies and finer tippets being a good option.
Remember the fishing lodge is open for tackle sales Wednesday afternoons 2pm to 4pm.
The new fishing lodge is now open.
We will open in two phases. The first on the 26th May will see it open in a basic format and you will be able to access the seating area to use (7 days a week 8.30am to 4pm) and help yourself to a tea or coffee. Payment will be made into an honesty box (£1 per cup). The office will be open on Wednesday afternoons 2pm to 4pm if you wish to buy any flies, leaders and accessories.
The second phase will be from 1st July where the lodge will be manned Monday to Friday (8.30am to 10am and 12pm to 1.30pm) selling tea, coffee, cakes, tackle etc. Outside these times including weekends the lodge will still be open but unmanned and you will have access to the seating area. Please respect and look after the lodge and face masks must be worn inside the lodge.
Please note that we will not be opening the new car park and entrance near the lodge until we have installed new automatic gates.
The water clarity at all venues is currently really good and that coupled with the cold water means conditions are about as good as you can get. Fish have responded well to small lures such as damsels and cats whiskers but with good buzzer hatches and olive hatches small buzzers and nymphs will do well. Fishing dries will be an exciting way to take fish. Try small olive patterns, hoppers and sedges.
Please remember that 2020/21 yellow tokens have now expired and cannot be used.
