Naworth Fishery

Brampton in Cumbria

Fishing Report

9/12/18 Update: Poor weather over the last couple of weeks has meant the lake has been very lightly fished. M Jefferson was top rod landing 16 fish to fly and two worm rods landed 12 fish on their visit, most of the rods fishing have reported catches. Hopefully we get a more settled spell soon, "the christmas period would be good!"

16/12/18 Update: More poor weather conditions and it doesn't seem to want to stop. Only the hardy ones have ventured out, with mixed results. Though it has been fishing well on the better days. Regardless of the weather the lake will be getting its Christmas restocking this week so this should boost sport over the holiday period if the weather permits.

30/12/18 Update: This is the last update for 2018. Sport at Naworth slowed over the last few days due to flood water, however by the end of the weekend we saw a change starting and fish starting to surface feed again in the mild conditions. Just before the rain and floods top rods were M Jefferson with 13 fish to 3lbs on fly, D Cruikshank landed 11 fish to 3lbs on buzzers, I McVittie landed 8 fish to 9lbs on fly and M Valente landed 6 fish to 5lbs on fly.

3/1/19 Update: Sport has started to pick up well as the lake drops back to normal and just to help things along it will be restocked for the weekend.

20/1/19 Update: With the lake at normal level and very clear sport has picked up well. It has even managed to stay open through the recent freezing conditions. Top rods over the last couple of weeks were J Wardrope with 9 fish to 3lbs on a catswisker, I Mcvittie landed 9 fish to 4lbs on a cormerant fly, D Bell landed 6 fish to fly and M Jefferson landed 8 to 4lbs on fly. The rod average over this period was 3 fish per rod visit. Worm rods haven't faired as well as for fly with sport being better on some days and bad others.

17/2/19 Update: With nearly a month since the last report things have slowly started to pick up and hopefully we have seen the end of the worst weather. The lake has been very lightly fished, some rods have done very well and others not, but the weather had a lot to do with it. The stocking planned for this week should see the start of the spring/summer stocking programe and hopefully an increase in the numbers fishing.

24/2/19 Update: With the temperature a lot warmer for a change and the prospect of more warm conditions sport is set to improve well. There wasn't much surface action this week but the start of the main stocking programe saw some good numbers landed. Top rods were D Cruikshank with 11 fish to 3lbs on fly, B Walker with 14 fish to fly and D Taylor with 8 fish to 6lbs on buzzers. As the week progresses we should start to see more fish surface feeding with any luck. Worm rods struggled at the beginging of the week but by the end were doing well.

24/2/19 Prospects: Fishing well to both fly and worm.
