Carl Gee’s first Walkerwood video is now online. Great video giving a taste of whats to come
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.

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.

Work will begin Sunday 8th Jan to open up several pegs and then we can start to fish this fantastic water once your membership has been upgraded and a site induction has been completed. Existing member will be required to pay an additional £10, £5 for OAP’s/concessions. We are a non profit club so this small increase is to help cover the cost and we believe will prove excellent value once you start to fish the reservoir. For new memberships please refer to the membership page.
We have had limited access to the water but we can confidently say it really is a special place. Not only is it set in beautiful surroundings, the fishing is top quality and unspoilt as it has been a fly fishery for the past 30 years. Silver fishing is up there amongst the best we have experienced and it’s backed up with trout and specimen carp. Bream are present and there are reports of Pike, Theroux trout and Tench. Sizes are unknown but we do know they all go to specimen sizes and we are sure some special fish reside in this un-tapped reservoir. We can’t wait to start getting catch reports back from our members to see what surprises it holds !
