Last Blast of Winter?

A couple of shots of a very snowy Ghyll Head on Wednesday 22nd March from Stephen Lobb. Not only did he get the photos he also got ten nice rainbows for his admirable perserverance! Well done that man but I'd be worried about the bear print?

jim duncanWe're pleased to report that Jim Duncan has been appointed as our new Fishery Officer, taking over the job from Bill Williams who retired at the end of last year. Jim is a keen fly angler  who has has been with the club for several years and he will already be familiar to quite a few of our members. Expect to see Jim round and about on the fisheries checking that all is as it should be as well as being involved with all the other work that goes into running our waters.  I'm sure members will give him their full support.

The proposed stockings at Ratherheath and Cleabarrow have now taken place. At Ratherheath we stocked 49 carp averaging 6lbs in the range 5lbs -9lbs and 200 tench at 8-10". At Cleabarrow 16 carp went in averaging 12lb along with 100 8-10" tench. Most of the carp were commons although a few big mirrors went into Cleabarrow. All the fish came from our normal supplier Sport and Leisure Fisheries. Total cost ? - just a shade under £8,000.00


United Utilities will be continuing it's pipeline work during the early part of 2017 (January - April). This will involve closure of a section of the A592 between the treatment works at Tower Wood to a point a couple of hundred metres north of the Beech Hill Hotel. (see map) At this stage it looks like access to Ghyll Head will not be affected from the north - and coming from Newby Bridge the fishery should still be easily accessible by turning right at Hill of Oaks and passing Parkcliffe campsite and Great Tower. Take care though - both of these minor roads are likely to see a lot more traffic as locals make use of the route to bypass the closure.
