The last three fishing days of the river season were very productive and members took advantage of the good weather to catch their last fish. The lakes looked beautiful with the trees showing off their autumn colours in the bright sunshine.
Lakes – Fish were rising at Little Bognor this morning and the fish in Great Springs were very active, taking buzzers in the shallows at the top of the lake. Members visited the lakes on 39 occasions and caught 30 trout, 10 of which were over 2lbs. Most of the fish were caught from Great Springs and Little Bognor.
River – In the last three days of the season members visited the river on 19 occasions and caught 17 fish. Fifteen of the fish were returned to the river and will hopefully be caught again next season. Nine of the fish were over 2lbs and one trout weighed 3lbs. Two sea trout were caught at Rotherbridge weighing 3lb and 2lb 8ozs. The exceptional sport therefore continued until the very end of the season.
Lost property – A dark green fleece was left at Keeper’s Bridge on the last day of the season and is now in the fishing hut at Great Springs for the owner to collect.
