A nice fish from Great Springs

Lakes  – during the last two weeks members visited the lakes on 118 occasions and caught a total of 42 trout including a fish of 4lbs 4ozs from Little Springs.



River – members visited the river on 46 occasions and caught 14 fish including a 9oz wild trout and a small perch.

A few mayfly hatched throughout the day and midges clustered under the alder trees along the banks. The most productive fly was the Grey Wulff. The best times to fish the river are dawn and dusk. During the day a weighted nymph fished alongside the streamer weed and under the bushes might produce a fish.
