The high water temperature made fishing at the rainbow lakes difficult but the lakes at Little Bognor are still producing fish. Last Thursday the temperature broke the all time UK record and the water temperature in the rainbow lakes rose to 25 degrees.
Lakes – last week members visited the lakes on 40 occasions and caught 17 trout, all except one from Little Bognor. Two wild fish were caught from the top lake, successful flies were Pheasant Tail Nymph, buzzers and Adams.
River – last week members visited the river on 20 occasions and caught 10 trout, two chub and a good dace. The most productive beats were Keepers Bridge and Rotherbridge. Fish were rising this afternoon and if you can find a rising fish they will generally take a well presented dry fly. The most successful flies were Adams, GRHE nymph and dry Pheasant Tail.
A nice condition chub from Keepers Bridge taken on a dry fly.
