Esthwaite Water Trout Fishery
www.hawksheadtrout.com
Esthwaite Water Trout Fishery Report - 12/9/12
The unsettled weather conditions are helping to cool the water down and fish are coming predictably closer to the surface, resulting in a steady increase in catch per unit effort as the days go by! It was only a couple of weeks ago that the majority of fish were coming from 15 and 20 feet of water with fast sinking lines a necessity to get your flies down deep. But now the bulk of the fish are being taken on floating, intermediate and slow sinking lines. Hatches of buzzer and sedge have been restricted because of the cooler temperatures , however the fry feeding is now in full swing as the trout feed hard before the onset of winter conditions. The deeper stretches of the lake have been producing the best results, with the weather buoys, grubhole and the boathouse stretch fishing best in the North basin, whereas the cages and the ticket office frontage has been the favoured areas in the South basin. Best bank fishing has been from the boathouse stretch on the Eastern bank and the point opposite the ticket office, is also fishing well.
One angler that experienced some fantastic sport from the boats was visiting angler Hugh Falconer from Lanark. Hugh fished snatchers and crunchers on a floating line to land 7 brownies to 3lb+.
Season ticket holder Jim Miller also opted for the subtle approach and took 3 brownies to 2lb on hares ears and mallard and claret wets on an intermediate line from the boats.
Jim Tuck from Northumberland had a practice day to remember prior to the Esthwaite Pairs final last week, taking over a dozen fish on a variety of flies and lines from the boats. Jims best fish was a terrific 5lb Brown Trout.
Any method anglers have also been recording some very good catches. Indeed Tony Young from Stockport hired a boat and some rods and landed a fine brace of brownies on spinner.
Meanwhile lady angler Elle Barr from Barrow in Furness took a 5lb rainbow and a 4lb brownie, both on spinner from the boats.
Prospects look very good for the forthcoming weeks as the water continues to cool down, expect a fry feeding frenzy. If we get some warm weather this back end, similar to 2011 then expect good hatches of buzzer and sedges and try to concentrate fishing effort around dawn and particularly dusk!
For up to the minute information on the fishing, please phone Dave or Alex on 015394 36541 or follow us on Facebook and Twitter!
Peregrines Swoop For Pairs Title
The final of the Esthwaite Water 2012 Open Pairs competition was contested on Sunday 9th September. The match saw 24 anglers weigh in 48 trout for a total weight of 66lb 12oz. In third place England Youth squad duo John Macintosh and James Atkinson weighed in 7 fish for a total weight of 8lb 1oz. In second place competition regulars Peter Crowe and Ernie Craster weighed in 8 fish for 8lb 7oz and in first place Esthwaite Peregrine team members Alistair Beaumont and Dave Morris romped home by weighing in 11 fish for 15lb 4oz. The top three pairs shared the �3500 worth of tackle, cash and season ticket prizes. Alistair Beaumont also won the biggest fish of the competition prize, with a rainbow of 1lb 12oz!
Conditions on the day were far from perfect, with a flat calm and bright sunshine prevailing, however the afternoon saw overcast and blustery conditions roll in and sport improved no end. Winning tactics were varied as Alistair and Dave fished wet flies on floating and intermediate lines to begin with, however a switch to Di-3 and sparkler and blob combinations saw the duo take the majority of their fish from the lakes North basin.
A big thank you goes out to veteran competition angler Tom Nelson for conducting the presentation and also a very big thank you goes to the competition sponsors Rovex and Shakespeare, who very kindly supplied some fantastic prizes.
For anyone who wishes to fish the 2013 Esthwaite Pairs competition log onto our website www.hawksheadtrout.com to find out the heat dates, or alternately telephone on 015394 36541.
