Winter Trout Fishing Guide

There’s a chill in the air and the leaves are falling, what better time to get out of the house and catch some fighting fit stillwater trout? Whilst fishing stillwater is is arguably most pleasant on a summer’s day, trout dislike high water temperatures resulting in the fishing dropping off through warmer months. With a large number of fisheries staying open through the winter months there is certainly good sport available!

Allan on Farmoor

Farmoor reservoir in Oxfordshire is a great trout fishery, it’s run by Thames water – they do an excellent job of keeping rods bent right through the year with quality rainbow and occasional brown trout. The fishery is made up of two concrete bowl water supply reservoirs separated by a causeway. Although this doesn’t sound very pretty, the concrete has weathered and the reservoirs fit comfortably into the surrounding landscape.

Trout Days

Our still water courses are proving very popular this season and places are selling fast. With the increase in popularity of still water trout fishing, an increasing number of people are looking for opportunities to learn about the equipment and techniques needed to get the most from the sport. Sportfish offers a number of dates either on a Friday or a Saturday throughout the summer.

A cold start to spring has changed the fishing routine for the Easter holiday – but don’t worry the fish are still there and feeding hard! Check out our latest video in this post and see how trout expert Jonathan Tomlinson tackles a short session on Haywards Farm Lake – right next to our Reading store – armed with his trusty Sage ONE fly rod.
