2024 Latest Fishery News!

9th February 2024 - Back to square one!

Despite only being in early February, the land and banks were just starting to dry out nicely before the dumping of snow and rain over the last 36 hours clattered us straight back to square one! The reservoir currently sits nearly eight inches above normal with some swims partially submerged.
I know a few of the lads are getting eager to kick start their campaigns but please be cautious under foot if visiting this weekend.
Hopefully this will be the last of the winter flooding and we can finally turn a 'drier' corner from this point on.
No sightings to report so far this month.

5th February 2024 - Road now open!

We are pleased to say the road works have now come to an end and has now fully reopened. Access is back to normal from all directions.

Many Thanks

30th January 2024 - Road closures!

Could all members please be aware that there are currently closures in place along the B600 restricting access to the fishery.
Those of you who travel from Junction 27/Underwood, you will need to follow the signed diversion route in order to get to the wood side car park. You can use the normal route if wanting to access the field side. For those travelling from the Eastwood end, this also applies but vice versa.
No vehicles of any kind are currently able to drive across the Dam Wall as they continue ground work. This is due to end by Friday the 2nd of February but that still remains to be seen. We'll inform you all once there are any changes.

There's not much to report on the fishing front I'm afraid apart from we now completely ice free. Levels have again been up & down this week following further downpours. The high winds have also contributed to the heavy colour the reservoir is carrying. Some unseasonably mild temperatures are expected over the next few days so it would be nice to see activity at the height we saw it last February. A bite or two would be a bonus!

19th January 2024 - There's a lid!

Not a lot happening on the fishery at present but we are pleased to say the levels have finally stabled up thanks to some settled weather. This week, temperatures took a tumble to as low as -8 leaving the reservoir with a pretty firm lid. It remains frozen but storms are again on the horizon for the coming weekend so it should be back 'wobbling' within a couple of days.
This time last year we had already seen catch returns hit double figures yet so far in 2024 barely anyone has been able to wet a line.

The countdown to spring begins!

3rd January 2024 - Happy New Year!

Happy new Year & welcome along to the 2024 newsfeed!
Here you will find all the latest happenings throughout the season. Be sure to keep an eye on our social media pages too for round the clock updates.

Conditions haven't exactly been great to start the year, however, some brief spells of activity have been recorded over the last week. Most notably, Carp were present in the 'Shallows' and 'Teabag' in particular on and after boxing day.
Levels are approximately eight inches above normal following the latest storm. To say the ground is saturated is an understatement although drier but colder weather is expected come the weekend.

In the meantime, can all members please have a quick read and reminder of the fishery rules for the upcoming season. 2024-2025.

See you all soon!

Many Thanks & Tight Lines
