Derwent Reservoir The biggest water in the county offering 7 miles of bank fishing, Derwent is an extremely popular centre with reservoir fishers, the 1976 season producing a new record total catch of 13,795 brown and rainbow trout. The water is extensively stocked and there is the added attraction that it is set in a lovely valley. At the time of writing, Derwent’s biggest brown went 3 lb 2 oz and the best rainbow, 4 lb 1 oz. Trout fishing competitions can be arranged at this water by applying in advance to the Sunderland and South Shields Water CoT DT:ToxAMay1-Oct14 NWAe
