Fishing Report and News 28/3/22 – 3/4/22

55 rods caught 482 trout for a rod average of 8.76.

Its still exceptional sport though the weather seemed to keep a few of you at home meaning we didn’t manage to replicate the terrific attendance of the previous week – in truth aside from a couple of decent showers it really wasn’t as bad as the forecast would have you believing – they’ve certainly got a lot to answer for.

Fish seemed to move up and down through the layers a little and those fishing subsurface are advised to keep swapping the point fly between a Buzzer or a small Booby or FAB to stay in touch with the feeding depth – this means you can chop and change between straight line nymphing or washing line tactics very easily indeed. Some fish are still happy to chase moved flies and the usual white and green, black and green or olive based lures are great options to pick from.

Season ticket holders John wood and Dave McGeever enjoyed a day afloat with a great number of fish falling to dries – a small ‘Shuck’ fly doing the damage for them. It was really nice to welcome another newcomer Mark Sharples in the better weather at the start of last week – he managed his first fish during a lesson and he’s back later today to get kitted out with some great quality kit.

We also stocked again on Thursday with 235 fine quality rainbows from Olsten Trout, it has really been great to get so many compliments of late about the sheer strength of the fish in Toft.

As the season and longer daylight hours continue Tofts opening hours will adjust accordingly. Our current opening hours are as follows:

MONDAY 0800-1800HRS

TUESDAY 0800-1800HRS



FRIDAY 0800-1930HRS


SUNDAY 0800-1930HRS


In the not too distant future we should all be enjoying fantastic evening sport – make sure you’re here to enjoy it with us.

We look forward to seeing you all soon.

A lovely sunset at Toft – thanks to Steve Bircumshaw for the photo.

Fishing Report and News 9/5/22 – 15/5/22

Some heavy rain in the middle of last week kept a few anglers away dashing our hopes of an attendance similar to the previous week – that said we still enjoyed a decent steady turnout, we just love you to take full advantage whilst the fishing is so good…………………….


Fishing Report and News 2/5/22 – 8/5/22

The last week made it in to our top 3 attendances of the season as anglers took advantage of the recent great fishing weather and enjoyed Toft during ‘primetime’.

In keeping with the general trend recently, imitative tactics reigned supreme again with a mixture of nymph and dry fly tactics accounting for probably 90% of the fish caught. Favourite patterns included both olive and black buzzers, crunchers, diawl bach, hares ear, shipmans, shuttlecocks and daddies. Its been great to see that our fish are really piling the weight on with the masses of natural food available, many anglers have reported catching several fine quality fish in the……….

98 rods caught 739 trout for a rod average of 7.54

A real bumper week again!

As we slip into May the season is well and truly in full swing and the fish obliging on the whole to the imitative approach employed by most of the anglers. Those that have fared best seemed to be the ones that could spot when to change depths, during brighter spells dropping deeper seemed to be a decent way to keep catching a few fish……..


Fishing Report and News 18/4/22 – 24/4/22

123 Anglers caught 360 fish for a rod average of 2.92

A week started with some promise and good settled weather soon turned abit less consistent and tested the resolve of anglers to the limit. A stiff north easterly breeze and bright sunshine for the second half of the week did little to maintain last weeks incredible rod average and those that fished from boat whilst slightly less comfortable probably enjoyed the better sport……………. 


Fishing Report and News 11/4/22 – 17/4/22

116 anglers caught 794 trout for a rod average of 6.84

Toft keeps giving at the moment and our excellent stock of fish have proved to be very cooperative indeed. At the risk of sounding like a broken record nothing much has changed in the way of tactics – it’s the time of year to generally adopt an imitative type of approach……………………………


Fishing Report and News 4/4/22-10/4/22

75 anglers caught 493 trout (67 killed) for a rod average of 6.57

Windy weather made for a slightly quieter week than we would have liked, the fishing however remained fabulous as Tofts trout gorged on the massive profusion of buzzers throughout the levels of the water column. Both black and olive buzzer imitations played a big part in catches and as lots of quality trout made their way to the landing nets of our anglers.

We spooned several fish this week to help us to ‘match the hatch’ and you can see from the pictures that they were certainly feeding very well indeed – the majority of the sport has been with floating lines and imitative types of flies – the real ‘cream’ of the seasons fishing – its literally buzzer soup out there!
