The river was in perfect condition last week and trout could be found rising in the evening under the trees. They were very spooky and good presentation of the fly was essential. The water level was up a little but the slight colouration didn’t deter the fish from rising.


Lakes – members visited the lakes on 32 occasions and caught 47 trout including 33 fish from Little Bognor, all of which were returned. Fish were rising well this evening at Little Bognor and were taking both buzzers and dry flies.


River – a trout rose to take a sedge while I was admiring the view towards Perryfields Barn. The fish were rising freely but usually under the cover of the trees.

Members visited the river on 28 occasions and caught 20 trout, 17 of which were returned including 4 wild fish.

Successful flies this week were Klinkhammer, Daddy, GRHE, PTN, black buzzer and black nymph.

The recent rain and the rain forecast this week, should encourage sea trout to make their way up the river. Now is a good time to visit the Fish Pass.
