SW LAKES WEEKLY TROUT FISHERY ROUND UP Week ending 24th November but including week ending 17th November

The season is almost finished – we close at the end of November so its your last chance to get out and enjoy our beautiful lakes and don’t forget the prices are reduced for you! See below for full details.

Rainbow and Brown waters

Burrator has had rod averages of 2 and 1 for the last two weeks with a mix of Rainbows and Browns being caught on boobies and damsels. The water level is full and the usual areas of Longstone and Discovery centre have produced fish.

Siblyback has also produced some fish with Mr Tompkins catching 2 Rainbiows of 2lb 3oz from Stock Bay. Ron Wilday was the only person to venture out last week but caught three Rainbows from the Marshes on a Siblyback sizzler fly!

Kennick has produced very few fish this last two weeks but those which have been caught have taken mini lures or boobies with Clampitts being the best location.

Stithians didn’t produce any fish during the last couple of weeks with only a few brave souls venturing out in the deluge of rain we have been having!

Don’t forget if you have a season permit you can fish until the end of November at no extra charge.

It was much harder at the other rainbow waters but don’t forget day tickets are now reduced for the remainder of the month other than at Siblyback which has just been stocked and will be reduced on 11th November.
