Catch of the week:

Anton Williams fishing with his son Tim had an excellent visit fishing close to the white post. The pair decided to have a go at spinning for the first time and after plenty of knocks they both started to catch consistently when they slowed their retrieve. Both Anton and Tim left with their limit catches and all their fish were taken on 6g Wiggo spinner.

Memorable moment of the week:

Young Harry Owen finally caught his first fish on the fly this week. After a few attempts whilst bait fishing during recent visits he manage to land a 2lb rainbow on a Black Hopper in Easter Bay. The excitement nearly got the better of him but he landed the fish after quite a struggle.

Best area and flies:

Best areas & baits / lures

Fish have been feeding high in the water with lots of anglers doing well using float fished bait. Bubble-gum Mice-tails have fished well using this method with lots of limit catches taken from the Dam Wall. Spinning is starting to do well with small Mepps fishing well, as have larger Toby spinners in areas where depths allow.

Fishing with Waterside Parks is the perfect way to enjoy a great sport, whether you like fly fishing, bank fishing, coarse fishing or wild brown trout fishing.

With so many different locations to choose from, and styles of fishing, every experience will feel new and exciting.

The fishing we offer across our parks and reservoirs is aimed at all abilities. We can teach you everything from setting up your rod to casting off, or we can just direct you to the best spots and leave you to enjoy the wonderful outdoors and to practice your skill. Our rangers are always happy to have a chat and give any tips or advice to help you have the best chance of catching one of the many thousands of fish stocked across our reservoirs. And now you can bring the family! Either get them involved or learn more of what they can do at Grassholme while you enjoy your days fishing.
