Lakes – The tail end of a hurricane, red dust from the desert and torrential rain discouraged people from fishing. The lakes were visited on 17 occasions and 4 trout were caught. Low water temperature and good levels of dissolved oxygen are encouraging the fish to feed. This afternoon several trout were rising to hatching buzzers on both lakes at Little Bognor. Lower Figgs in now completely empty and drying out.
River – During the weekend the water level was at it’s highest since March. Bad weather also kept members away from the river earlier in the week. Members visited the river on 10 occasions and caught 5 fish, one of which was over 2lb. No sea trout or wild trout were caught. The season on the river ends next Tuesday and there are plenty of fish to be caught if the weather is kind.
