The winter maintenance work on the lakes has revealed the depths of Little Springs, it is a lot deeper than I thought !
Great Springs and Lower Figgs have also been drained so that the winter frosts kill the weed at its roots. The lakes are all filling up, the torrential rain over the weekend and the rain forecast for next weekend, should ensure that the lakes are full and allow plenty of time for the water to clear.
The river is in flood and last years debris has been washed away. The contours of the river bed will have changed and the trout will have different lies.
The season opens on the river on Friday 3 April in accordance with the bylaws. The lakes open on Saturday 14 March.
