Carsington is a great venue for Fly fishing competitions and following the success of both our Spring and Autumn competitions we are pleased to announce the date for the 2017 Autumn Open on Sat 7th October 2017.
The Carsington Autumn Open competition is aimed at all anglers who enjoy a days boat fishing with a friend. It will be an organised event based on two people per boat with an individual bag limit of 6 fish. Prizes will be awarded for the winning pair with the heaviest collective bag and a number of individual prizes.
The cost of entry will be 60.00 per pair including permits and petrol boat hire.
25 Year Anniversary Tagged Fish Competition
To mark Carsington Water's 25th Anniversary we have launched a tagged fish competition. We have released 25 tagged fish into the reservoir with a number of prizes to be won for those caught throughout the 2017 season.
To date 13 of the 25 fish have been caught so lots more prizes up for grabs.
Please can we remind our anglers:
- Always wear your killcord whilst the engine is running
- Do not stand up whilst the boat is moving either as driver or passenger
- Wear your lifejacket on top of all other clothing
- Carry a mobile phone
It's good to be able to feature those great catches on our weekly reports. We have already received some great shots, thanks to those who have emailed in.
We always have a camera in the fishery lodge so let us know if your catch is worth a snap!
It is now possible to book your days fishing online 24/7. It’s a great way of making a booking out of hours and checking the availability of boats.
Our weekly fishing reports will be emailed out to those on our mailing list and will be available to view on our website:-
If you would like to be on our email mailing list then please let us have your details.
You can also help us with our reports by filling in the fishing catch return forms and putting them in the returns box by the warden’s office, plus any pictures are always useful.
We look forward to seeing you throughout the 2017 season.
Don’t forget to book your boat in advance to avoid disappointment.
