Memorable Moment of the week:
Colin Boughey took an eight fish limit catch from the concrete on the north bank using blue PowerBait paste, netting his final fish by 1pm. Doug Moore also had a limit catch on the fly with a good old Black Fritz Goldhead doing the business!
  • Best areas and flies: Spillway west to Cronkley using a slow intermediate line with Black Fritz, Black & Silver Humungous, Yellow Dancer.
  • Best areas and baits / lures: The stream along to Murray’s Point with ledgered PowerBait of various colours, key to success is a swim feeder filled with a very strong scent.
  • Derwent tagged fish update: Stocking again this week! Of the 10 tagged fish we stocked pre Christmas, three have been caught with a £50, £70 and £90 prize claimed. This means there are seven tagged fish remaining and seven cash prizes as follows: £60 £80 £100 £110 £120 £130 £140 Happy hunting!
  • Special message for the new week: A very big thank you to all our customers, both old and new, and a happy and healthy New Year. Tight lines in 2019
