Lakes – The unusual summer weather continued and the water temperature in the lakes stabilised. More weed was cleared from Great Springs. The lakes will be restocked shortly and this should improve the catch returns. Members visited the lakes on 33 occasions and caught a total of 6 trout, the majority from Little Bognor. Three carp were caught from Jacksons.


River – The river level rose and fell throughout the week but members who fished when the conditions were good were rewarded with some nice fish. Members visited the river on 24 occasions and caught a total of 18 trout, 11 of which were over 2lb. Most of the fish were caught on nymphs from Beats C and D, Keeper’s Bridge and Rotherbridge. This afternoon several fish were rising to midges at Rotherbridge and above Keeper’s Bridge. No rain is forecast for the next few days and when the river level drops, the fishing should be excellent.

The Autumn Guest Day is on Sunday 3 September from 11:00am at Great Springs. Please contact Holly at the Estate Office and let her know if you are going and how many guests you are taking, so that the food and wine can be arranged.
