Boat anglers are reminded for their own safety and that of others, they MUST wear the 'Kill Cord' whenever they are underway in a boat. If you are not familiar with this please click on this link: Use of Kill Cords in Fishing Boats
Fishing is still good with a rod average of 3.71 from returns with fish still in the top 2-3 feet and now more spread out across the water. There are trout in most areas but no real "hot spots" at the moment. A number of the popular blue trout are now putting in an appearance.
Another 1500 trout from Bulldog Fish Farm were stocked this week and stocking of home-reared Blues commences shortly.
Best areas for boats have been Bewl Straight, Ferry Point and the top of Hook Straight.
Bank anglers have been catching from Monty's Seat to the Gorse Bushes and both sides of Bewl Straight.
Successful flies have been similar to last week - Buzzer, Cormorant, Damsel and Booby whilst any method anglers have been catching by anchoring and using bait.

BEWL BRIDGE FLYFISHERS' CLUB
The Bewl Bridge Flyfishers' Club was started in the mid 1970s, during the construction of Bewl Bridge Reservoir and before it opened to the public. In the 1990s the reservoir was renamed Bewl Water, however the club chose to retain the full name of Bewl Bridge in its title and it has since grown to become the largest fly fishing club in the country boasting a membership that exceeds 500 and has done for over 10 years. The club is run by a committee of nine volunteers, and liaises closely with Bewl Water's management on all matters related to fishing for trout at Bewl Water, with Bewl Bridge Flyfishers' Club also represented on two specialist separate committees, one for fishing and the other for all Bewl Water users.
The club offers full annual membership and members receive six copies of the much loved and looked forward to club magazine, the Bewl Angle. This is packed full of articles about how, when and where to fish at Bewl, including tactics for both boat and bank fishing, plus dates and information about events throughout the season. Some of these events will be fishing days organised by and exclusively for the membership, offering opportunities to fish with Bewl experts, to meet other members and learn more about both Bewl and our sport generally.
Being a member of Bewl Bridge Flyfishers' Club entitles you to a number of benefits including third party insurance whilst fishing, exclusive access to club car parks in various locations around Bewl's banks and discounts in local tackle shops and the Bewl fishing lodge.
