Fishing Reports

April 14th 2021

The clarity remains very good and subsequently the fishing has been excellent with the quality of the fish outstanding. The buzzer hatch has not been as good as this for a few years and you can expect fish to rise anytime of day, even with a cold edge to the wind. Many anglers are using small black buzzers and muskins type flies to some success, with most fish only a few yards.

Opening Week March 20th 2021

After the long wait, it was nice to get out fishing and the lake and weather duely obliged. The quality of both fishing and fish were excellent, the best being a silver 5- 6lber which was carefully returned, da iawn Rob, special mention to Lewis, Zac and Mostyn our junior members for catching their first trout at the top res, Da iawn bechgyn. All methods seem to work, from boobies on di lines to light nymphs on floater, with fish following right in to the bank, so dibble those flies and try not to wade. The quality of the Exmoor fish are superb, and with Torre hatchery stocking this week, good fishing should continue. Tight lines

12th August 2020

In between thunder showers and hot sultry weather during last few days, special mention must go to William Hooper aged 10 for catching his first trout at Swiss Valley during an extremely hot morning. Well done. Fish are still being caught and with a further stocking this week, the good fishing will continue. Tight lines

3rd Aug

It’s been a few years since I can report fish being caught in the ‘dog days’ of August, but fish are being caught consistently mainly as the river enters, but most areas hold fish. If you’re prepared to wait, sometimes late evening they switch on and the lake seems to be alive. I keep on telling myself, your flies have got to be in the water!

21st July

The relatively cool weather has continued the good fishing, with good bags being caught. The rain has coloured the water slightly making imitative fishing harder, and we hope for settled period. Both ends of the lake are holding fish and a Torre hatchery stocking today with a further two over the summer period should liven things up. Tight lines

7th July 2020

The latest exmoor stocking has resulted in some impressive bags of trout especially from the boat, with buzzers and damsels doing the damage, but don’t forget your daddies. The rain has coloured the top end but cooled the water temp! so fish the dam at both ends where there is more clarity. But settled weather should see clarity return. Tight lines.

Post - Lockdown

Hope your all well, and nice to see so many members fishing. The latest stocking has really switched the reservoir back on, especially with the cooler weather. To catch good bags of fish in July is unheard of, and the fishing has been excellent, with the older fish often fry bashing close in. All methods seem to be catching, but a pearly cruncher/pheasant tail on the cast should match the fry. Tight lines
