Fishing Report for Week Ending Tuesday 10th September


The last ten days have been the most demanding of the entire season for sport here at Bewl. Before last weekend, the water temperature was a very manageable 17°C, so after a further 1,800 Rainbows were stocked, we expected returns to be encouraging. Alas, the 3rd mini heatwave of the year saw our Trout all but disappear, and with water topping as high as 23°C, it was hardly surprising to learn, that from the 34 returns, no less than seventeen were blanks!

Let's hope we've seen the last of the hot weather and angling can return to normal. Dates for your diary:

  • 5th October · Fly competition · Association of Major Flyfishing Clubs
  • 16th October · Fly Competition · The Grand Max

Don't forget to sign up to our loyalty scheme next time you are in the lodge · Hire 8 boats get one free

We are relying on your catch returns to provide as accurate data as possible on the fishing conditions, don't forget that each month we will choose one return to win a free boat on a return visit, there are several ways to submit your return:

  • By filling out your permit and posting it in the box by the lodge or passing it to one of the team
  • By emailing fishing@bewlwater.co.uk
  • By filling out our online catch return form on www.bewlwater.co.uk/fishing
  • By giving us a call on 01892 890 352

We need your catch reports for a number of reasons:

  • To evaluate stock control
  • To provide best possible information and advice
  • To note where fish are located
