Our opening weekend for the 2020 season will be on Saturday February 22nd and Sunday 23rd. It’s our 25th season of running Stocks and we will be celebrating this with a variety of events and promotions throughout the year. Starting with our opening weekend, which will include special celebratory tagged fish and a selection of prizes for angers over both the weekend days.
Our trout are in awesome condition, helped by the mild winter. We will be stocking the reservoir in full, ready for the opening day on February 22nd. This year we have loads of 3-4lbs fish and some big double figure specimens so be prepared!

A week of two halves with early signs promising! 12 fish for Wayne Dent and Adam Ingraham who caught over the Northern Shallows with sunburst blobs on fast intermediate lines. Sport started to get harder as strong winds and bright skies came, fish were still coming out to the persistent angler and we saw a few 7-11lb fish out over the weekend.
The Stocks and Shares Comp was held on Saturday and won by Andy Cooper with 2 fish bagging him £20 + a cash prize and 4 packets of Fnf Fritz, Colin Fitzjohn was second again getting £20 for his fish a further cash prize and 4 Packets of Fnf Fritz
Sunday morning was…wet, to say the least! The heavy downpours eventually gave way to a lovely afternoon and misty evening with fish moving well tight in along Hollins Bay- Bell Point. We stocked Sunday afternoon and with the level set to rise again we should see an increase in the sport!
The last day of the season will be the 4th of November
