Fishing Report for Week Ending Tuesday 2nd July


The last six days have proved the hardest of the season so far. With high atmospheric pressure and soaring temperatures to 32°C, it was hardly surprising to learn the Trout dropped to a thermal layer that suited them. Just before the sharp rise of water temperature, which may have topped 23°C on Saturday, several anglers found some fish in the main bowl and around the towers

A static or 'twitched' orange blob was effective for some, but it was lure angling that offered the best sport. One boat, with three any method anglers enjoying an afternoons fishing, recorded 22 very plump fish in a little over four hours, whilst others were struggling to get a tug!

Lure anglers have found our range of Berti spoons most effective. Not unlike the Swedish ABU Toby in design, these Romanian lures are very light and available in a multitude of colours for every eventuality. Available at £4.60 in the lodge

In addition, we are expecting a delivery of SV lures from the Ukraine shortly

Whilst bank fly fishing may be testing at present, you cannot beat an early morning session for the peace and solitude that Bewl provides. Alternatively, an evening catch and release bank ticket for two fish is available from 5pm onwards. For either option, simply call the lodge on 01892 890 000

Earlier this spring, we installed a number of solar powered devices to alleviate the problem of Blue Green Algae and thankfully, according to the latest Southern Water report, suggested that little, or no Blue Green Algae is at present on Bewl Water

Safety Reminders


Please remember that if fishing in the Main Bowl boats are to keep 100 metres clear of the draw-off tower, the overflow tower and the Dam Wall. Tying boats to the towers is dangerous and may cause damage both to boats and Southern Water's operational equipment
