Last week 80 fish were caught from the lakes including a 4lb blue trout from Upper Figgs. Members visited the lakes on 40 occasions. Little Springs was again the most productive lake accounting for half the total catch.
The grass has been cut, the lakes have been stocked with a few bigger trout and there have been big hatches of Mayfly. Today there were large clouds of male Mayfly spinners at Great Springs and under the trees at Little Springs. It is a great time to visit the lakes with fish up to 9lb and the trout rising freely.
Mayfly are hatching in good numbers along the river. Alder and midges are also hatching. Last week there were 28 visits to the river, mainly to the lower beats. A total of 28 fish were caught including 11 sea trout and 6 wild fish. A sea trout of 2lb was caught at Rotherbridge. The river has been stocked and should be very productive during the evening rise.
The AGM is on Sunday at Great Springs commencing at 11:00am followed by the spring barbeque.
