Trout Fishery logoEsthwaite Water



So far the fishery has been stocked with 1500 top quality triploid Brown Trout, with another 500 due in a fortnight! The fishing up to now is gathering momentum as water temperatures are still low. Bank fisherman have been successful with legered worm especially from around the café area of the lake. Fly and spinner has been more successful from the boats, but again the car park area and the ticket office frontage is producing the best of the sport at present!

John Cummins from Preston had a cracking day from the boats landing 7 nice fish with one over wintered brown of 2lb 8oz. John fished traditional wets in conjunction with a medium sink line! Meanwhile Peter Johnson from Windermere fished a Dawson's Olive and Montana combo? to take his 4 fish limit in under 3 hours again from the boats in front of the café. Dave Bristow fished spinner from the boats and took 3 nice fish to 1lb 8oz.

Richard Dunn from Barrow took 6 of the best from the bank on legered worm, from the car park swim and Simon Jones from Milnthorpe had a great day?s fishing with worm taking 7 browns to 4lb, again from the car park peg!

We still have places left for the first couple of discounted fly fishing tuition days of the season on Sunday 22nd March and Saturday 18th April. These sessions will start at 10am and finish at 2pm.

The Pike fishing season will draw to a close on 31st March, so it?s last chance to come and catch a whacker!

The recent fishing has been very good with plenty of nice fish reported! Steve Morgan from Liverpool landed a 15lb 8oz and a 13lb 12oz, both on trolled lures from the boats! Mark Corr caught a nice double of 13lb while out with the Esthwaite guides.

John Bradley fished dead bait from the bank and took a very nice conditioned 21 pounder as well as another nice double in the same session! James Langer also had a broad shouldered 25 pounder from the bank in Weather Bay!

Big s club member Matt Mclean took a 12 and a 15 pounder on Mackerel dead bait from the boats!

Adam Lee from Barnard Castle took a 10 pounder from the car park banking on Smelt! Again from the same swim Reece Nicholson from Carlisle landed a 23 pounder on Mackerel. Meanwhile from the boats Steve Bivens landed a 19lb 2oz fish from the boats on Sardine!
