Early Season Tips For Small Stillwater Trout Fisheries

Spring time is just round the corner, finally its starting to warm up and small stillwater fly fishing will be coming into its own! There will be no sign of troublesome summer time weed, the water will be well oxygenated and fresh fish will have been stocked. However this is still no walk in the park! Read on to find out how to kick off your early season stillwater trout fishing campaign.

Early start on a small stillwater fishery

An early start on a small stillwater fishery

1. Don’t reach for sinking lines first – For the early spring in most years people opt for sinking lines and deeply fished lures. Try a floater first with a co-polymer leader and fish the upper layers nice and slowly. By doing this, the leader and flies will not hit the deck or fall too quickly through the water column, giving fish more time to see the flies. You can then search the lower layers if your unproductive. One of my favourite set ups is an unweighted black or olive woolly bugger on the point, with a buzzer on the dropper. The heavily palmered fly means you can retrieve nice and slow without hitting bottom, and catch fish on the buzzer. When you strip in to recast you often prompt a take on the point fly – giving you the best of both methods!

2. Get to the fishery early – Set your alarm clock, and beat the crowds! Small stillwaters have a confined area, so pretty soon the fish get used to seeing flies of all description whizzing past, and wise up after a few hours. The earlier you get there, the more chance you have of connecting with some fresh fish that have not seen another anglers flies.

3. Cast to moving fish – It amazes me that more anglers don’t cover topping fish on small stillwaters! Always make the effort to pick your fly line up and cast to a moving fish. Try to work out which way it’s heading and drop your flies in its path. Its also extremely satisfying when that fish turns and nails your offering!

4. Use a blob under an indicator – when blobs first hit the scene, the in method was to rip them back in at break neck speed on fast sinking Di lines, and hang the fly for a few moments before lifting off. This can be a devastating tactic on a small stillwater, but the fish soon get used to it. Fished under a bung such as an Airlock strike indicator they are absolutely lethal. I think its about the way they behave in the water column when static, they drift slowly just like trout pellets do. The bright colours simply make the trout take notice of them.

5. Use a forty plus line – With increased angling pressure the fish can eventually move out of casting range, and seemingly all group up in the middle. This is very frustrating if like most 25 to 30 yards is your maximum range . Give your self the edge with an Airflo forty plus extreme fly line. These lines will give you that extra distance you need and of course make you look like a casting hero in front of other anglers! I would not be without a selection of these fly lines on a small water, they are easy to use and you should see at least another 5 – 10 yards on your added on to your normal range.

6.Cast along the edge – Of course the trout wont always be right out in the middle, they will also look to follow the most defined feature of the lake, the margin! Watching the margins can often pay dividends for an early fish. These margin cruisers will take a fly fished close in.  So take care to cast parallel to the bank,  and stand a few steps back from the edge – especially when you arrive at a new swim. You often hear of beginners and youngsters landing the largest trout stocked in the lake, these are anglers that cant cast far. Those big trout were hugging the margin on a patrol route.

7. Mix up retrieves – Try to vary your retrieve to keep the fish interested, use a jerky figure of eight, fast strip, twitchy two foot pulls with a long pause, a steady very slow crawl or even a rapid rolly polly, and don’t forget to hang the flies for a few seconds before lifting off. The more you mix it up, the less bored the trout will be and you will eventually trigger a strike.

Essential Early Season Fly Lines

The clock is ticking down towards the UK fly fishing season opening days on many of the UK’s large reservoir fisheries. We are talking of famous and popular venues such as Rutland water, Grafham, Blagdon, Chew valley , Eyebrook, Stocks, Draycote and many more.

Thousands of fine rainbow trout are being stocked in readiness, and the fully finned overwintered residents are bound to be hungry and ready to rip that fly line out of your hands! (Check out their facebook pages for more information on stocking)

A rare calm opening day on Rutland water

A rare calm opening day on Rutland water

We tend to have a mental image of a balmy spring day as the perfect season opener, with the trout gently sipping buzzers off the top in mild and calm conditions… The reality however is almost always very different in mid March – its often way too wet, windy and cold for top water fly fishing to be successful. The trout will have a much slower metabolism due the very cold water temperatures, and will invariably be inactive and deep down in the water column or hugging the bottom.

Thankfully to make things much easier for us, the team at Airflo have come up with the ultimate early season fly lines, the Sixth Sense range! They are perfect for those dour cold windy days – when you really need that deep and slow presentation, or for fishing a booby static.

Gareth Jones, Airflo Sales Director describes the uses and benefits of the whole Airflo sixth sense range:

For us the Airflo Sixth Sense Di7 in particular is the ”must have” early season line

If you are a bank angler early season can be even more of a challenge than on the boat. Airflo’s answer to this is the 40 plus range of fly lines. Airflo have successfully updated the old fashioned ”shooting head” tradition. Long gone are the days of hearing that annoying rattle of the crude lumpy join going through your guides, and the frustrating hours spent unpicking your curly mono running line. With the latest generation of forty plus lines, Airflo have seamlessly integrated the head and running line into a smooth tapered join, with a continuous non stretch core for superb take detection. The result is much easier casting execution combined with superb longevity.

Here’s Gareth explaining more about the forty plus fly lines:

For early season bank fishing we’d recommend the Airflo Forty Plus Di 5 & Di 7.

Leaping Trout at Cwm Hedd Lakes

Wet, wild and windy
A wild and windy week kept many of you at home this week, so I hope you’ve cracked on with the DIY with a smile on your face instead of staring gloomily out of the window and biting everyone’s heads off. Just console yourself by thinking of all the fishing you’ll be able to catch up on when the weather settles down. Another stock of rainbows and a tag fish were delivered by Exmoor Fisheries last Friday so they are just waiting for you all to be able to get out and about again.

I love mad anglers
Although anglers have inevitably been very thin on the ground a big thank you to those of you who were mad enough to brave the atrocious conditions and deliver some fishing highlights along with your good humour. Ken Pascoe took one and returned five on a rubber-legged daddy and a floating fly line. Also on a floating line Craig Bowles took one and returned five on a bloodworm and cats whisker s, while Mike James took three and returned four over two visits, on Ken’s emerger (ie Ken Pascoe) and an egg fly. Matthew Russell took one and returned four on a blob under an indicator and a cats whisker, while Lee Ashcroft took one and returned three on a hothead damsel and an intermediate line. Arron Atkin, Richard Harris, Mike Mckeown, Dave Smith and Stewart Woodfield all took one on various flies: cats whisker, white dome head, montana and a new one to me: ‘Dennis the Menace’.

Captured on camera
Kieron Jenkins took one and released one on a tequila blob under a bung in less than an hour, capturing a fabulous image of one leaping out of the water ‘a must see’ image which is the new cover shot on our facebook page (and above). The image was taken via a camera built into glasses, manufactured by Pivothead and worn by Kieron who was trying them out for the first time on a setting that took one image every three seconds (I think). Sally Ann Iles also tried out the glasses and has a potential new career as Cwm Hedd’s ‘roving reporter’ as she raced to capture Luke Thomas on video as he brought in a fish using the aptly named ‘spermy worm’ under an indicator. Sal’s in very professional commentator mode and Luke is a star. He also released another five on a 40+ floating line.

Get well soon!
I’m sure you will be very sorry to hear that Ken Bowring has suffered burns from a chip pan fire. I have kept in touch with him and he is making a steady recovery. There is a get well card at the lodge, which will be there for this week if you would like to sign it and we all hope he will be back fishing soon.
There is also a card for you to sign for Bob Mayers, who is laid up with a broken femur, so a very speedy recovery is wished for you too Bob.

Now you see it
I had one of those ‘elephant in the room’ moments on Saturday, having been at the lodge for at least an hour and not noticed that the bridge to the main island had gone! Not gone from the lake (that would indeed have been an ingenious theft): the bolts attaching it to each bank had sheared in the high winds and it’ taken itself for a sabbatical in the wading area, accompanied by a canoe. I’m sure they will enjoy the change of scene. Amazingly it is still upright (it’s on polystyrene floats) and doesn’t seem to have suffered any damage, so when the weather sorts itself out we’ll tow it aback around and give it some TLC.

Welsh International Coaching Day, Saturday 21st February ‘Fly fish with the best Less than six weeks to go!

How’s it fishing?

Overall another outstanding week for fishing at Cwm Hedd, with the mild weather but cool water temperature conducive to some excellent fishing, particularly on Wednesday and Thursday where conditions were near perfect. With all anglers required to take the first rainbow, the Exmoor fisheries stock is turning over rapidly and the excellent condition of the hard fighting rainbows is maintained, as can be seen from the numerous images posted on facebook in the last few weeks.   Another hundred rainbows are on order for this week.

Top anglers this week

One of this weeks top anglers was regular Ken Bowring, back to full form, taking one and retuning nine in less than three hours on a cats whisker and an intermediate line. Ken recommends short strips or fast figure of eights. Others on catch and release and also reaching their 10 fish total limit were Kens long time friend Roger Martyn (who also hooked a fabulous blue on a cats whisker and intermediate line); Roger Jones found success on a pink blob (floating line), Luke Thomas chose an olive lure (intermediate line), Graham Davies dazzled with a black and green fritz while Ken Pascoe scooped his limit on a diawl bach.

Plenty of others on catch and release took one and returned four or more, such as Bill Williams (daddy-long-legs), Lee Ashcroft (damsel, orange blob), Russell Evans (goldhead cats whisker), Rob Collier (black buzzer) and Ian Oxley.

Ian’s comment on facebook was very welcome: ‘great sport at Cwm Hedd today most [anglers] fishing in the morning but I had a very good session in the afternoon with seven fish all taken on a floating line with 12 ft leader and using damsel nymphs and had my largest fish all over 2.75 lb on an orange hopper. Almost all the fish were no deeper than two foot down and their condition was excellent and all fought well and returned apart from the first one as fishery rules -a policy I welcome as it stops fish becoming hookshy as many people now practice c&r’

Not surprisingly Sunday was the most difficult day with the pesky wind causing problems, so most anglers chose more clement days where they could more easily fish their favourite platforms and the hotspots, mainly the far bank and the main island, but also the bay and behind the main island.

Windswept and interesting

Cwm Hedd Top Fly Pattern

One Sunday afternoon angler on his second visit of the week was Wales International Kieron Jenkins. Morning anglers had struggled with the wind and opted mainly for more sheltered platforms, so there were some inevitable blanks. Kieron would probably have a go at fishing in a hurricane and at 3.15pm he headed straight for the far bank where the wind was at its worst and of course where the fish were to be found. Kieron had already taken one and released two when I rang him to ask if he could take another four for family who fancied taking a rainbow home for tea. By 5pm, Kieron had caught them all (on a black and green lure and an Airflo 40+ Intermediate fly line) and had also gutted and filleted them, so with five taken and two returned it was a great finale to the week.

Filleted Trout for Tea

It’s all in the planning

Others have also been in the right place at the right time for some speedy catching: on Wednesday, Terry Williams took five rainbows in under 2 hours on a cats whisker, orange fritz and a black fritz.

New faces

It’s always good to see new faces alongside the regulars: Andy Gill took one and returned two on a small damsel and a slow glass. Shane Malson and David Price each took one (cats whisker and black daddy); young Kieron Martin gave dad Peter a hand to take one rainbow on a cats whisker and novice angler Gareth Neale took one on a blob on an intermediate line. Congratulations to another novice angler Dan McGhee – who took his first rainbow this week in quite tricky weather conditions. Dan was on the tip of the main island, using a cats whisker and a floating line.

Legend

It was also a pleasure to welcome legendary rod builder Owen Caudle this week, fishing Cwm Hedd for the first time. Owen took three rainbows on goldhead cats whiskers and intermediate lines, saying that the fish had obviously ‘had their Weetabix’!

Angling development

I’m hoping to get some angling development sorted out, with my thoughts being that the following might be of interest/benefit, but let me know if there is anything else, so I can plan, as it needs to come from what you anglers or budding anglers want!:

Taster/beginner sessions (juniors)
Taster/beginner sessions (adults)
Novice development for juniors
Novice development for adults
Master classes e.g casting general/casting into the wind/ fly tying

This is in the very early stages of planning, so I don’t have any details, dates or cost yet. I’m hoping to provide some free or at a minimal cost on a non-profitmaking basis though.

Opening hours: Monday and Tuesday closed; Wednesday-Sunday: 8am til sunset; last admission: 2 hours before sunset. We’ve got one of those widget things on our web site now that tells you the sunset times for Cwm Hedd; I’ll see if we can get one that does the weather and wind speed as well. By next Sunday sunset will be 4.45pm, so last admission will be 2.45pm from Wednesday-Sunday this week.

 

Cwm Hedd Lakes Fly Fishing Report – Opening Week

Cwm Hedd Opening Week 2014
Opening weekend fishing report 19th October 2014 (posted a few days late!)

In contrast to a wild and windy Sunday the near perfect conditions on Saturday brought a great turnout of keen anglers to Cwm Hedd for opening day. The season got off to a flying start as rain held off on a mild and mainly overcast day with the occasional glimpse of sunshine and a fairly gentle breeze.  The quality fish stocked in the last two weeks by Exmoor fisheries have been finding their way around the lake and provided good sport for anglers.

Although some rainbows opted for tentative takes followed by a hasty retreat, and some anglers were simply unlucky, over a hundred rainbows were brought to the bank over the weekend, with the hotspots being the tip of the main island and the far bank. Top rods reaching their ten fish limit on Saturday were Mike James and Carlo Bertorelli, with Mike taking two and releasing eight on an orange fritz, an apps bloodworm and a damsel (all on a midge tip fly lines), while Carlo opted for black and silver mini lures to take one and release nine.

As regulars know well, fishing Cwm Hedd can test the skills of the even the most experienced anglers, so it is always a pleasure to see young anglers prepared to take up the challenge and being rewarded for their perseverance. Thomas Morgan and Luke Jenkins both took fish, each using floating lines: Thomas on a montana and Luke on a white and yellow cats whisker. Well done!

Top rod on Sunday was regular John Belcher, one of the hardy few who braved the high winds to take two rainbows and release seven on his own green and white lure with an intermediate line. Taking a breather at the lodge to fortify himself with bread pudding and tea, John reported that an immediate retrieve with a fast figure of eight produced the most success.

With the temperature due to drop further in the next few weeks anglers can look forward to some great fishing at Cwm Hedd. Let’s hope that the tail end of hurricane Gonzalo doesn’t wreak too much havoc!

Opening hours: Monday and Tuesday closed; Wednesday-Sunday: 8am til sunset; last admission: 2 hours before sunset. Sunset this week is approximately 6pm (5pm on Sunday as the clocks are going back on the weekend)

Cwm Hedd Lakes – 2014 Opening

Cwm Hedd Opening

Hope you are all looking forward to Cwm Hedd re-opening this coming Saturday 18th October. Rain forecast for the weekend might dampen enthusiasm to some degree, but will at least be conducive to good fishing, so bring your waterproofs! I am pleased to report that I’ve taken the water temperature this morning and it’s now averaging a very respectable 12 degrees, having dropped over four degrees in the last fortnight. Exmoor Fisheries put in the first of the season’s stock last week and are bringing more of their tip top stock before this weekend.

In a few weeks once anglers have experienced the ups and downs of the new season I’ll be able to tell you what’s been working best in terms of tactics, fly lines and flies and all things fly fishing at Cwm Hedd. In the meantime I am very grateful to Wales International Kieron Jenkins for responding promptly this morning to my request for advice to anglers as a starting point this season: ˜As the water temperature continues to drop the fish will tend to become more active and aggressive when it comes to feeding. Anglers who use large, mobile lures such as cats whiskers, dog nobblers and zonkers will tend to have more action and in turn, catch more fish. A medium-fast sinking line such as the Sixth Sense Airflo Di 3 sinking line will be ideal for reaching the deeper coolest water and the sensitivity from the sixth sense lines will ensure you feel EVERY take. A mixed pace retrieve will put as much life into the fly as possible and grab the attention of nearby fish.”

Ticket prices
As I said in the previous info in case you missed it ticket prices haven’t changed for a few years, so I have had to bite the bullet and put them up this year to ensure that the standard of the fishery can continue to improve and so that it will be sustainable in the long term.

New ticket prices:
All tickets include the first fish, which must be killed to ensure regular stock turnover. 10 fish limit on catch and release. Barbless hooks, no boobies.
Standard ticket: catch and release, four hours: £17.50; day ticket £22.50.
Concessions: over 65s, under 18s, students (proof of age required, photo ID for students) £15.00 four hours, £20 day ticket.
Under 18s accompanied by an adult angler paying a standard or concession ticket: each child/young person: £7.50 for four hours, £10.00 for full day. First fish included

Catch and Kill
As above, £5.50 per extra fish

New opening times:
Monday and Tuesday – closed
Wednesday-Sunday: 8am til sunset
Last admission: 2 hours before sunset.

˜Poppy fish”: British Legion Competition 16th November 2014. £30 entry fee plus sponsorship. Over half the places have gone, so don’t miss out! Cash prizes totalling £215.00. Entry forms on www.cwmhedd.co.uk or download at http://counties.britishlegion.org.uk/counties/wales/events
I’ll also have entry forms at the lodge from this weekend

Fly Fishing at Llyn Gwyn

I decided to visit Llyngwyn, run by Rhayader AC. Llyngwyn is a place I hold fondly in my memory as a place I caught my first ever fish on the fly, some 18 years or so ago before the lure of football and Rugby left the fishing behind. Now back fishing at any given opportunity it was only natural I would get back there.

I went along with a friend, Tom who was keen to fish there too. We met early, around 8 and made the relatively short journey to Rhayader where we picked up our lunch and permit for the day before heading to the lake. On arrival, the wind was up and it was rather cold. There were a few anglers on the left bank towards the boathouse so decided to head around the opposite bank to an area of Lilly pads. A check of the catch return saw fish we generally taken on Cats and Montana’s.

Having climbed into my thermals that morning, by the time I put on my Simms freestone waders, Guideline jacket and Anglers Buff I was toasty. I tackled up 2 rods. A 6wt Flextec with an Airflo ridge intermediate line to pull the lures, I added 10ft 8lb G3 leader and a black Zonker. I also tackled up my 4/5wt Sreamtec Nantec rod with 15 ft 7lb G3, with an apps bloodworm on the point and two black buzzer imitations on the droppers. To be fished under a strike indicator.

Given that there were a few anglers on the boathouse bank, I struck up a pleasant conversion with two of them on how they were fishing and what was working for them and kindly asked if I could set up my fly fishing tackle between them.  With no objections I sorted my self out and cast out. Having fished various tactics and flies, lunchtime came and still no fish, I was worried another blank was on the cards! I stopped to feed and had a think about what to do next?

The weather was still bitter cold and I had a feeling the fish were holding a little deeper. I waded out over the shallow, around 15-20ft from the bank so I could get my flies over the drop off comfortably and hopefully bring them back through the patrolling fish. My first cast I let sink down 20 or seconds before a short, sharp, jagged retrieve – only five seconds in the retrieve the line locked up and my delayed reaction saw a fish the first missed fish of the day.

Next cast and a fish was on and to the net in seconds, a rainbow trout of around 2lb. Next cast and another 2lber. A few more fish were hooked but some aerial acrobatics saw more hook pulls than I care to share! Before the end of the day another two of similar size came to the net. Tom had 2 to the net, including this one of 2 1/2lb. All fish were taken on lures; the buzzers didn’t have much of a look in to be honest!

With the conditions getting colder we called it a day around 4pm. After completed the catch return and a quick look at what had been taken throughout the day it appeared tough all round, only one angler had more fish than me that day and there was a blank earlier and the previous day. Not that I’m one motivated by being better than everyone else buts it’s nice to get the reassurances your doing things right even after a break.

Bristol Reservoir Fly Fishing Dates

Bristol Water Fisheries, home of the UK’s top fly fishing and pike venues, Blagdon, Chew and the Barrows have recently released their Bristol Water competition dates, a great chance to get involved with competition angling, see how the serious competition anglers set about their fishing day, or for the seasoned competitor to try and get their names on the cup.

Competition Dates

Snowbee Competition – Saturday 13th April

Orvis Competition – Sunday 16th June

Hidden Teams Competition – Sunday 28th July

Hidden Pairs (Blagdon) – Sunday 22nd September

End of season Bank (probably) – Sunday 13th October

The past year has been a real blinder for Chew and Blagdon, with some cracking fish coming out, especially at the end of the season. This unseasonable weather we’ve been having of late means that the water quality will stay as good as it’s been on both lakes over the winter, with some great fishing expectations for the coming season! If you haven’t already and have a spare day in your calendar, take some time out and visit next year and you could be in with a chance of latching into something like this!
