The lakes fished well during the last week. The weather was cold with strong winds from the north east but the trout were rising to mayfly. Members visited the lakes on 24 occasions and caught 41 fish the biggest of which was 3lb 12oz from Great Springs. Lower Springs produced over half the trout.
The fishing on the river has been exceptionally good. Members visited the river on 13 occasions and caught 15 fish. Eight of the fish were wild. Two of the overwintered wintered fish weighed more than 3lbs. There are lots of sea trout smolts in the lower beats, please handle these fish with care and return them all to the river as quickly as possible. They will provide sport in years to come. The mayfly are hatching in good numbers, particularly in the evening or when the wind drops.
The AGM and Spring Barbeque will be held on Sunday 21 May at Great Springs from 11:00am onwards.
