Catch of the week:

Mr. K Corrigan from Seaton Carew had a fantastic day with his son on the west end of the Dam Wall netting eight rainbows on ledgered yellow liver Powerbait. The east of the Dam Wall also produced the goods for Peter Harbottle from Yarm who landed his eight on the good old bubble float and worm.

Memorable moment of the week:

George Goldsborough from Redcar landed our best trout of the week a lovely 3lb 4oz rainbow at the west end of Dam Wall ending his day with six caught on maggot and yellow liver Powerbait.

Best area and flies:

The west end lodge and the moorside have been the best areas for fly anglers with the most success using Kate McLaren and Invicta flies.

Best areas & baits / lures

Sunshine yellow with liver Powerbait, worm and maggot have worked well with both ends of the Dam Wall and the lightly fished moor side all producing eight fish limits.

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 Scaling while you enjoy your days fishing.
