Trout Fishery logoEsthwaite Water



The trout fishing has been excellent recently with good bags of fish coming from both the bank and the boats and on all methods, fly , spinner and worm! There?s plenty of fly life coming off the water. There?s plenty of Damsels, Alders , olives and buzzer coming off the water, however fly fishing has been best first thing in the morning and last thing in the evenings. Best areas of the lake at present are Stockie Bay, Strickland Bay, Weather Bay and Swimming Pool!

Hawkshead Angling Club member Neville Jameson had the best recent fish taken on a buzzer pattern from the boats and tipped the scales at just over 5lb! Peter Turner from Preston fished cats whisker on a sinking line and landed 6 brownies to 4lb from the boats!

Fishing spinner from the boats Jimmy Whittaker landed 5 Trout to 3lb+ and David Johnson from St Helens managed 4 to spinner also!

Employing worming tactics Johnathon DaviS landed 5 browns to 2lb from the boats and Gary Tomlinson landed 4 nice ones to 2lb+ from the car park banking. So plenty of action recently and the cold and unsettled May helped keep the water temps? down and the fishing very good!

The Esthwaite Kayak Grand Slam 2015 was held recently and what a turn out we had. It was fished over 2 days and anglers had to catch Trout, Perch and Pike. 35 anglers fished the competition and in 3rd place Ben Quinn submitted a length of 157cm. In 2nd place Eddie Turner submitted a length of 158cm and the winner was Mike Redding with an overall length of 175cm.

The following weekend we held the Esthwaite Boat Grand Slam 2015. This was similar to the kayak event, however it was a pairs competition and again was a multi species event held over 2 days! 26 anglers fished the event, 13 pairs. In third place Andy Sharpe and Tom Sharpe, alias team Sink ?em submitted a length of 132 inches. In second place Karl Ashurst and Adam Wade alias team Sambo Perch submitted a length of 133.5 inches and the winners for the second year running were Stuart Fazackerley and John Ashurst alias team Top Rods with an overall length of 181.25 inches. A big thank you goes out to the event sponsors Savagear and Masterline for providing some fantastic prizes!
