As we approach the middle of May and the weather is improving so is the fishing. As you may have been aware the weather conditions have been against us as anglers, cold easterly winds, snow at the end of April and cold night's but it seems to be changing. The daytime and night time temperatures are set to increase this next week which will hopefully bring on the fishing at Skelsmergh Tarn. Fishing is always slow at Skelsmergh until the temperature increases a little. To all that have and are going to give it a go, good luck and I hope you get a new personal best. See you up there.
Banks pond has seen an increase in anglers this year and the carp seem to be liking the extra bit of food going in. Members and day ticketer's have been steadily catching since March. As the weather improves and the water temperature increases in the next few weeks the carp should be getting ready to spawn. This is usually a good indicator for the silver fish at Banks Pond which come out of hiding.
Atkinson's tarn has also been on top form for members and day ticketer's. Carp, tench, bream, rudd and roach have been coming out in good numbers all over the tarn, the crusian's will hopefully turn on soon. Carp up to 16lb, tench up to 4lb and bream just over 5lb have been coming out regularly on all methods.
A BIG thankyou must go out to Peter Burgess and Ian Campbell who have done a lot of work at the pond this year transforming the fishery into a tidy and clean place again. A lot of the pegs and pot holes have been refilled, trees chopped back and bushes cut as not to inhibit anglers whilst casting. Thankyou chaps.
The canal is also been on top form for roach, perch and pike in recent weeks. If you land on a shoal of roach it can be some nice consistent fishing with the odd surprise fish amongst them. Members have caught 3lb+ perch in the past and these are only increasing in number these days. As the weed grows it will provide cover for fish and they should spread out a bit. I look forward to seeing and hearing about people fishing for the tench and bream that the Enviroment Agency stocked back in December.

If you take part in the matches the club has once a month you will be aware that these matches are no longer run in conjunction with WADAA. If you are competing and are not a member of Kendal & District Angling club your points that you win will not count in the summer or winter league.

Many thanks and tight lines
