A great trout from Great Springs.


Lakes – members had an exceptionally good week on the lakes. Members visited the lakes on 54 occasions and caught 34 trout, 10 of which were returned. A fish of 8lb 4ozs was caught at Great Springs and two seven pounders. Luffs produced trout of 9lbs and 5lbs and a 5 pounder was caught at Upper Figgs.

The rain has raised the water level in the rainbow lakes and there is a good flow through both the rainbow lakes and Little Bognor.


River – the river level has been high all week and members stayed away. The level is dropping quickly and the river should be fishable at the end of the week if we don’t get any more rain.

The season on the river ends on 31 October in accordance with the Environment Agency close season for brown trout.


Lost property – a telescopic landing net has been left at the signing-in box at the Fish Pass.

A lunch box and steel drinks bottle, a folding landing net, a wooden priest and reading glasses have been left at the fishing hut at Great Springs.
