ESTHWAITE WATER TROUT FISHERY REPORT - 10/09/2014
The autumnal weather that we experienced towards the end of
August, helped the fishing no end and as a result the fish are up in the water
once more and the fry bashing is in full swing. Fly patterns such as cats
whiskers, zonkers, sparklers and floating fry are all working well at present in
combination with a sinking line approach. Evenings have been best for surface
activity, with both buzzer and sedges coming off the water. Daddies and hoppers
have been scoring well too!
Hawkshead Angling Club member Neville Jameson took to the
boats and landed 3 brownies. Neville employed an intermediate line and damsel
nymph approach up in the North basin. Meanwhile Alex Fenton from Fife up in
Scotland managed a nice brace of browns, one on a silver Invicta and the other
on a pearly pennel from the boats and again up in the North basin along the
Any method anglers have been reporting some really good days
too. Nathan Poland from Workington used spinning tactics from the boats and
landed 8 brownies! Michael Brody from Southport also had 3 trout using float
fished worm, again from the boats.

Nick Lancaster from Ripon landed 2 trout and Josh Li from Singapore also landed
2 Trout from the boat jetty, near the ticket office! Meanwhile Kelly Winter from
Co Durham landed a nice brace of brown?s on worm, again from the boat jetty!
