Blithfield pike fishing off this weekend

Pike fishing on Blithfield Reservoir has been postponed again this weekend due to adverse conditions.

Ressie regular Gary Knowles reports: "Although the weather forecast has improved greatly the recent heavy and incessant rainfall means reservoir is now 100% full, with water flowing over the dam wall.

"Although this in itself is not a problem to the fishing the water is within a couple of feet of the underside of the causeway bridge which gives access into the Blythe end of the reservoir and with any kind of a 'chop' on the water passage through here would not be allowed, or indeed possible.

"Obviously this means if the pike had all moved to this side of the reservoir, then our fishing would be useless."
