BEWL WATER FISHING REPORTS AND NEWS
The FISHING LODGE is open 8.30am to 5.30pm daily
Report week ending 8 October 2015: Another good week at Bewl - based on returns the rod average has risen to an excellent 4.97 while average fish weight is up to 2lbs 2ozs.
The trout have remained in the top layers of the water and continue to spread out across the north end of the lake. Best boat areas are once again the dam and across the Main Bowl to Hook Straight, Chingley and Ferry Point.
We have not had much info back recently from Bewl Straight so if you fish there please update us. 1800 Bulldog rainbows were stocked this week.
Bank fishing continues to challenge but try the dam and Chingley.
Successful flies are small Boobies, Daddies, Hoppers, Cormorants and Minkies.
Water temperature is 16.5degC and water level 63.5%
All returns submitted are entered into a monthly prize draw - top prize is a voucher for 2 permits and a boat worth £81. Winners of the monthly 'returns' draw for September are 1st Ian Rose, 2nd C Johns and 3rd Tomas Krikstanas. They will be notified by letter.
A reminder that no boats are available on the following dates - 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th, and 24th October as there are large fly fishing competitions on these days.
Please remember that if you put in your returns you have a chance of winning fishing prizes worth up to £81 every month - and you help maintain a good fishery by helping us monitor the fishing.
Returns can given in the day, by phone on 01892 890352 or emailed to Janet at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you need a boat for 3 anglers, especially at weekends, please let us know in advance when you book your boat.

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.
