Walkerwood (Exciting Times)

Posted: May 13, 2017 by Davebailiff in Uncategorized

Well, the nicer weather is upon us and with it comes the prospect of more time to get on the bank. Walkerwood Reservoir is the newest water to become available to CAC members and offers the opportunity to land some big roach and monster perch. There have been some nice fish caught recently, the roach looking immaculate as they fall into the hands of the happy anglers seeking their elusive, fast biting quarry.

The perch have been deep bodied, greedy and brightly red finned, falling to both float and swimfeeder. These fish are in great condition!

Do yourself a favour, get on the bank. Walkerwood is waiting……with it a great days fishing.

Lots of activity at Walkerwood this weekend with work coming along really well. There are lots of pegs open now so you have  space to fish and clear paths to get around the resi. Two new car parks were cleared on Sunday to give good access to the water from the top end to save long walks with fishing tackle. There are locked gates to pass through but these have the same combination as our other locks and we would advise taking care as the roads are a little rough. We had Carl Gee down filming around the reservoir so expect something soon on his great you tube channel (click here to view Carl’s site)

I was fishing again Saturday and its was a very entertaining few hours  with more top quality roach and a solitary perch also put in an appearance. We know there is a really good head of large Perch in the depths somewhere but they are staying hidden just for now.

January Afternoon on Walkerwood

A grey wet day in January may not be the best time to go fishing but with Walkerwood now being open for fishing it was too much to resist. A tub of maggots and a feeder rod was all the gear needed so I was travelling nice and light. After 20 minutes of punching the feeder about 40yrds the roach started to get onto the bait. The next couple of hours were very pleasurable, relaxing fishing with pretty regular bites and a decent stamp of roach all fin perfect and healthy little scrappers. No wild runaway bites today but considering the time of year and the recent cold snap,this was good enough to go home happy and looking forward to returning as soon as I can.

Thanks to all that attended today. We got loads done and a few pegs opened up. The members who payed up the additional subs can now fish.A letter will be going out to all members this week with details of how to gain access to this water and the rules.We will be holding a meeting in a week or so for the members who missed today.
