Western Reservoir Catch Reports 2020
We have asked Members to report back to us how they have done during their sessions. This section of the site is not intended to be a hall of fame for certain anglers but to inform you how the waters are coming on and to reasonably reflect the fish that have been caught (and that prospective Members could fairly expect to catch).
Please report your catches back to us, and if you would like a picture of a fish you have caught from one of our waters put on the site, if suitable we will do our best to upload it.
Western Reservoir Syndicate
Northumberland isn’t exactly blessed with a great deal of carp fishing venues; in fact it’s fair to say there certainly aren’t many, if any waters in the county or surrounding regions that offer the opportunity to fish for carp in a large and weed free venue like the Western.
Over the last couple of years the Western has produced over 21 different 20lb+ carp and with a continuous number of mid to upper doubles and 20lb+ carp coming up through the ranks each year the venue is developing into a good doubles water with an increasing number of upper doubles and 20lb+ carp to target.
With no restriction to length of stay, Members can relax and enjoy their fishing as part of a friendly Syndicate in the peace and quiet of the beautiful Northumbrian countryside.
17.5 acre water supply reservoir with depths ranging between 8-20 feet, the margins are stone lined up to two rod lengths out from the bank, the lake bed is firm with a light covering of silt and there is NO weed present.
The Syndicate was established and opened to fishing in 2012.
Current stock approx. 400 carp; 22 fish per acre, plus home grown fish from successful spawning’s.
Lake Record Mirror 25lb 5oz Common 18lb 2oz.
No formal swims, but with nearly two thirds of a mile of bank to fish from finding a pitch to fish isn’t a problem.
Other species; roach, dace, gudgeon, perch and eels.
No restriction to length of stay.
Non fishing Partners and Children are allowed to accompany Members; no fees charged.
