Lakes – The Autumn weather reduced the water temperature and improved the level of dissolved oxygen in the lakes. The fish were feeding and behaving normally. Great Springs and Little Springs were stocked again last week and the number of fish in those lakes is now higher than at the start of the season. The fish in Luffs were feeding well. The Aqua Science report about the water quality in the lakes and their recommendations for improvement, has been received. Members visited the lakes on 19 occasions and caught 9 trout, 4 of which were over 2lb.
River – The rain last week caused the river to repeatedly rise and fall. Despite the conditions members visited the river on 21 occasions and caught 14 fish including 7 over 2lb and a wild trout. Several big sea trout were hooked and lost in the weir pool.
The river has also been stocked. The stock fish are slightly larger than normal and with this weeks settled weather conditions, the fishing should be good.
