Multi-bait fishing tips at Fontburn - In the early months of the season try ledgering with a worm off the dam wall. Later on try Powerbait around the shallower parts of the reservoir. Lighter tackle usually catches better quality fish; try using size 12 hooks and a stick float.
Most fish are caught near the bank side so don't be tempted to fish a long way out and do not stay in one place all day, keep moving around!
Fly fishing tips at Fontburn - When fly fishing try a Cat's Whisker on a sinking line or later in the season try a floating line and a Bibio. Various boobies are productive especially off the dam wall.
