SW LAKES WEEKLY TROUT FISHERY ROUND UP Week ending 8th September 2019

The fishing was much better last week and I think you can now look forward to some good sport for the remainder of the season. Please read on to see how the fishing was last week…….

Rainbow and Brown waters

We resumed stocking at Kennick last week with 400 Rainbows of 2lb+ up to 4lbs.

Did you know – at Burrator at Stithians we do a 3 hour anytime ticket which is £13 and you can fish any 3 hours of the day you wish. Something to bear in mind if time is limited and you don’t want to fish when it’s tough in the middle of the day. We are extending this offer to Kennick and Siblyback for August and September!!
