Last week the river was very productive and the water temperature in the lakes stabilised at 17 degrees.


Lakes – members visited the lakes on 45 occasions and caught a total of 21 trout, all from Little Bognor. A fish of 4lbs was caught from the lower lake and was returned. Successful flies were Daddy-Long-Legs, Grey Wulff, Black Buzzer, Black Gnat and the usual nymphs.


River – last week the river fished very well, members fished most stretches and caught 21 trout on 22 occasions. Most of the fish, 19, were caught from the lower Beats, Rotherbridge and the Fish Pass. The most productive flies on the river were similar to those used on the lakes.

This afternoon fish were rising around Rotherbridge and could be caught on a dry fly. The last month of the season is often the best time to fish the river.
