Trout Fishery logoEsthwaite Water



The trout continue to hold deep as they invariably do at this time of year, so sinking lines are preferable at present. Early mornings and evenings have been the best times to fish top of the water tactics. Hatches of buzzer, damsels and sedge have been prolific with the warm weather, we have experienced of late! The lake is also stuffed with Coarse fish fry at the moment and so fry patterns are also a good bet with Cats Whisker, Floating fry and Zonkers all great patterns to employ at the moment. With this in mind the best areas to fish have been Grub hole and the weather buoys in the North basin and where the old cages used to be in the South basin!

One angler that had a great day out on the boats was Peter Chapman from Carlisle. He fished around the weather buoys and caught 7 nice Brown Trout to 4lb+ on a combination of fry patterns and traditional wets. John Taylor from Ambleside also fished similar tactics and did well from the Grubhole area of the lake, landing 5 nice Trout to 2lb!

Because the Trout have been residing in deep water , the bank fishing has been tough. But for those switched on anglers fishing areas like the point opposite the ticket office and the Swimming Pool in the North basin, sport has been good. Indeed Dave Farlow from Essex fished spinner and worming tactics and recorded 4 brownies to 2lb+ and Alan Davidson from Preston who fished the car park area of the lake from the bank recorded 6 fine Trout on legered worm.

Prospects for the forthcoming weeks looks very good indeed. As we head into September the Trout will venture back nearer to the surface and fry bashing will commence in earnest. Hatches of buzzer and sedge as well as falls of daddies will also provide hectic sport from the bank and the boats!

Also don?t forget we are now open for general Coarse fishing. Esthwaite Water boasts some incredible Coarse fish stocks with Bream, Roach, Rudd, Perch and Eels. All of which grow to specimen size. Tickets to Coarse fish are 10. Best methods include feeder tactics and sliding waggler for best results! One angler that had a storming day last week on the Coarse fish was local rod Simon McKenna who fished on the tip and recorded a 20lb+ bag from the car park swim, that included a couple of Roach over the 2lb mark. Great action by anybodies standards!.
