Catch of the week:

Brian Shaw from Loftus had a fantastic morning on the jetty taking his eight fish limit on natural worm ledgered along with white Powerbait paste

Memorable moment of the week:

Les “Big H” Smith from Ingleby Greenhow on his first visit of his season showed younger brother Geoff how it’s done on the west end rocks. Maggot and orange Powerbait paste soon had Les coming back in for a second five fish ticket and was home by 2pm with ten rainbows brought to the net

Best area and flies:

The Dam Wall has fished really well with the dog leg providing Mr. RA Osborne with some fantastic sport returning six rainbows on small Montana Nymphs.

Best areas & baits / lures

The west end of the Dam Wall and jetty have been the most productive with orange and white Powerbait paste and more natural baits such as maggot and worm all producing full catch 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.
