Membership renewal letters have been posted and enclose the renewal form, details of the 2018 charges and a standing order form. The membership fee remains the same but the fish stocking fee and guest ticket have both been increased slightly to ensure that the club covers it’s costs.
The restoration of Lower Figgs is complete and the recent rain has filled the lake. Work to remove the weed and silt from Great Springs is underway and the lake has been drained. The objective is to stabilize the water temperature and pH during the hot summer months and to give members better access to weed free water.
The lakes at Little Bognor will trial catch and release. Both lakes are spring fed and the summer water temperatures are generally low enough to ensure the recovery of released trout. Barbless hooks or crushed barbs must be used on both lakes.
In view of the number of stocked trout that are returned to the river and the increasing number of sea trout and wild trout caught, barbless hooks must also be used on the river.
