The season has started very well indeed on the majority of The West’s premier reservoirs and larger stillwaters that have opened. The levels are good to excellent with the bodies of water in the far west being full and the levels decreasing only slightly as you go east with Sutton Bingham being at the lowest level of them all. Wimbleball and Clatworthy are fishing very well and bag limits are being taken from both boat and bank from both, but with Wimbleball being the best performer of the two. Blagdon had one of its best opening days for ages despite being slightly down in level.
All in all a promising start to what some are worried might become a difficult season should the weather predictions come to fruition. Let’s hope it continues.
