May 2018 Fishery Report

The reservoir is currently fishing well with bank averages over three per visit.  The third stocking of rainbows will occur before the end of the month. Members report that the fish are fighting well including a number of blue trout taken and returned. Work to improve the backcasting is ongoing together with steps to improve some of the underfoot conditions along the Abbey Village bank.

Sadly the Belmont Bull has now closed leaving the internet, Brinscall Post Office and Millingtons Fishing shop as our current sources of day tickets. The club is acutely aware of the challenges posed by parking for day ticket anglers. It may be possible to find space on the extension of lower Roddlesworth Lane after the metalled road ends however this is entirely a matter of chance.

Given the charges for day tickets generally the club feels that a visit is a relatively cheap day’s fishing in a most conducive location where members are welcoming and happy to give advice to visitors.
