A592 Road Closure & Ghyll Head Access

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.

Last update for this year

17th November. That's it for the reports this year - winter is not far away.  Ghyll Head, High Newton and Bigland have all been on great form over the last few weeks but, as the colder weather sets in, fishing is inevitably going to get harder. Pick those softer, milder days if you can and aim to be on the water during the middle part of the day.

Be assured there are still very good stocks of fish in all three waters - even when it doesn't feel like it! .

Good luck and we'll be back in late February
