The changes in the weather didn’t discourage members from visiting the lakes but the trout had moved out of the shallow water and were difficult to find. The water at Little Springs and Lower Bognor was slightly coloured but the strong winds blew the autumn leaves into the margins clearing the surface of the lakes.


Members visited the lakes on 29 occasions and caught 14 trout, 5 of which were over 2lbs, including a fish of 3lb 2ozs from Luffs.

The cold east winds have driven the fish into deep water and a sinking line with a bright fly will produce the best results.
