Trout Fishery logoEsthwaite Water



The Trout fishing has been on top form in recent weeks, with plenty of fish being reported over the Easter period! Fly fisherman have been doing well on sinking line tactics, in conjunction with lures such as Cat?s Whisker, Zonkers, and Dawson?s Olive?s. With the weather warming nicely, surface activity has been good on overcast days or early mornings and evenings best. Plenty of buzzer?s coming off the lake now and one or two damsel?s starting to show.

Worm and spinner has also accounted for some nice fish, to both bank and boat anglers alike!

Gary Scott from London fished from the boats with Damsel and hares ear nymphs on a floating line from the boats and landed 3 nice fish to 2lb! Dave Pickering from Blackpool also fished from the boats with sinking line and Cat?s Whisker combo? and landed 4 nice fish too!

Harry Colthart from Perth fished from the boats and landed 4 nice Trout to 1lb 8oz on float fished worm. Also John Gibbons from Liverpool fished worm and spinner from the boats and landed 5 nice brownies to 1lb 8oz. Bank fishing from the car park, Peter Johnson took 6 brownies on legered worm.

However best recent fish was taken by 9 year old Thomas Ainsworth from Morecambe. Fishing with his dad from the boats Thomas landed a 7 pounder on spinner, which was released to fight another day. The father and son duo also landed 6 other fish in the same session.
