June 2019 Report

None of last year’s problems with the water level! The reservoir is well stocked with a mixture of rainbows up to 4lb, blue and brown trout. The fish are seen to be rising well when the surface is reasonably calm. The club continues to improve the back casting areas on both banks and the dam is fishing well.  The parking for anglers is by Raikes cottage.  The United Utilities sign by the Hare and Hounds entrance to the causeway is wrong. The car park up there is for anglers and that remains the case. We are trying to get the sign altered. Dog walkers continue to find informal parking opposite Smiths farm in Lower Roddlesworth Lane but this is very limited.

We believe that the cost of a our day ticket remains very competitive. Many anglers find that our online sale suits them, though we do ask everybody to file a return on their catch. Members are very approachable and will point visiting anglers to areas fishing well.
