The wet and windy weather throughout the middle of the week was good for the water temperature in the lakes and flushed out the river. Environment Agency data on the river level can be seen by clicking on the icon at the top of this page, it is refreshed twice a day.
Lakes – The rain has settled the dust and freshened all of the foliage, all the lakes look splendid. Members visited the lakes on 48 occasions and caught a total of 43 trout including fish of 5lbs and 4lbs 2ozs from Little Springs. More than half of the fish were caught at little Bognor, all of which were returned.
River – the river level rose during the middle of the week and hopefully encouraged the sea trout to migrate upstream. Members visited the river on 4 occasions but no fish were caught, probably because the water was too coloured. The river is well stocked and when the water clears the fishing should be excellent as the hungry fish search for food.
Orvis Day – the day was well attended by both club members and Orvis customers. The brief shower of rain after lunch soon passed and the sun came out. The rod racks emptied as the rods and lines were tested. Much of Jan’s yummy cake was consumed. It was a very successful day, a big thank you to all who participated.
Lost property – a folding landing net, found at Little Springs, has been left in the club house and a brass priest, found at the top lake, has been left in the hut at Little Bognor.
