Witton Castle Fishery Report

Written by Anne Woodcock. Posted in Catch Reports

Despite the unsettled forecast, conditions on average were favourable for the 115 visiting anglers who averaged a visit of 3.3 fish per angler.

Anglers have had some good bags on all three lakes. Mr P Down from Ashington on West Lake landed a 9lb 12oz rainbow. Mr. B Palmer from South Shields using a Zonker caught an 8lb rainbow on South Lake and Mr A Grey from Crook, a fin-perfect 6lb rainbow from East Lake. Fish rising to black spiders have extended the days fishing and anglers changing tactics to dry's have enjoyed some of the best evening sport. To rate and review Witton Castle please go here

Written by Wellsfield Trout Fishery. Posted in Catch Reports

Wellsfield Fishery is now open till 8pm 7 days per week for fly and bait fishing. We will open till 9pm soon. Opening hours are currently 8am-8pm, 7 days.

All 3 lochans fished very well throughout the course of the week, due to the good head of trout stocked. We continue to receive a weekly delivery of top quality hard fighting trout, which we then trickle stock up to 4 times per week into the ponds.

The rise in temperature has started to see some fly life hatch around the ponds, including chrinomids (midge buzzers), hawthorn flies, stone flies, and some olives.

Best flies this week: Black & Green Nomad, Yellow Dancer, Orange Blob, Cormorant, Red HH Damsel, Buzzers, Diawl Bach. Best Baits: Maggots, Worms and Small Mepp Spinners.
