Fishery Headline: Doug takes end of season prize!

The weather gods smiled on the region for the last day of the season with an excellent turnout of over 50 anglers. Prizes for the five biggest fish caught on day were available with Doug Pearson taking the biggest, weighing in with a nice 2lb 14oz rainbow from Pow Hill.

Grassholme Reservoir

Fishery Headline: Colin nets end of season jackpot

A fine day on Sunday rounded off what has been an excellent season of sport at Grassholme reservoir. Anglers turned out in force for the final day heaviest fish competition to have a punt at the cash prize and to enjoy the end of season ‘banter’. Colin Parnaby from Durham was the lucky angler who took home the cash pot of £130. Colin caught two good sized rainbows, both of which weighed over 2lb with the heaviest weighing in at 2lb 12oz. Colin caught his fish using a Mepps spinner fishing around in Easter Bay.

Hury Reservoir

Fishery Headline: Scott takes eight beauties

The rod average maintained a high level throughout November thanks to the mild weather conditions and the extensive stocking during the season. Andrew Scott had a successful day using roaming tactics and caught eight fish, the majority of which were caught on Dawson’s Olive and a Kate McLaren. Andrew caught fish in several different areas but reported the best sport on Reedy Bank using large lures and blobs.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all anglers for their support during the 2014 season and wish everyone an enjoyable and peaceful Christmas and New Year.

Scaling Dam Reservoir

Fishery Headline: Noble takes last day plaudits!

Thick fog hindered sport on a couple of occasions this week but calmer weather later in the week was much more welcome and Sunday was a great day to end the season. On Wednesday Derek Ogden from Redcar finished his season with style working his way along the south shore and finishing in the east bay landing six rainbows on a Cutthroat Cat. On Saturday visitor Stuart Allan tried his luck in the deep water on the middle of the Dam Wall and using a PowerBait cocktail landed two rainbows. Sunday was a day for the bait anglers and Steve Lynas from Hinderwell pulled in three rainbows including the best of the week at 2lb 9oz. This was beaten by only 1oz as Harry Noble’s took the last day prize for the biggest fish of the day.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all anglers for their support during the 2014 season and wish everyone an enjoyable and peaceful Christmas and New Year.
