ESTHWAITE WATER TROUT FISHERY REPORT - 21/07/2015
The trout fishing has been tough during the heat wave. Fish
did their usual migration to the deep water and were feeding almost exclusively
on Daphnia and as a result were very tricky to catch. The weather is cooling now
and its an improving picture with fish venturing to the surface in the mornings
and evenings again feeding on buzzer, sedge and damsels!
Due to the depth the fish were residing (10-25 feet down),
worm predictably out fished any other method . Indeed 9 year old Joe Buxton from
South Wales fished worm deep around the weather buoys and landed 5 nice brownies
to 2lb+. Peter Jenkins from Nottingham also landed 5 brownies on similar tactics
from the North basin too.
Spinning tactics have also been producing the goods of late,
as Darren Golden from Rochdale found out. He fished from the boats and landed 7
trout to 2lb+ on a 3cm Rapala in the South basin!
Meanwhile Ross Anderson from Arbroath fished fly and spinner
and landed 4 browns to 1lb 8oz. John Jones from North Wales also landed 5 browns
to cats whisker fished on a Di-7 sinking line!
Providing the weather continues to cool expect sport to
improve no end. Another 500 top quality triploid Brown Trout were stocked again
