The weather was cooler last week and consequently the temperature of the water in the lakes dropped. The wind and rain lowered the water temperature at Little Bognor to 19 Degrees and at Great Springs it was 22 degrees. The forecast cooler weather and rain should further reduce the water temperature. Members visited the lakes on 21 occasions and caught 8 trout, most of them from Little Bognor. Yesterday trout were rising on the top lake at Little Bognor and taking midges.


Members visited the river on 19 occasions and caught 9 trout including 3 wild fish. No sea trout were caught although members have reported seeing a lot. The rain early in the week raised the river level and coloured the water. Now that the level has returned to normal the river should be more productive, particularly late in the evening.
