The weather during last week had been extreme. The hottest day of the year so far followed by nearly an inch of rain. The water temperature at Great Springs had risen and the fish were difficult. The Mayfly hatch had almost finished.

Members visited the lakes on 39 occasions and 40 fish were caught. Lower Springs produced almost half the total. None of the remaining blue trout had been caught although one of the larger fish had been hooked and lost.

The fishing on the river had been exceptional. Members visited all of the beats and caught 25 fish including 2 sea trout andย 2 wild fish. Twenty of the fish were returned. The best fish of the week was a 3lb 8oz sea trout from Rotherbridge.
