Lakes – members visited the lakes on 67 occasions and caught a total of 165 trout, which was a very good result. Fish were caught at all the lakes and 124 were returned. All of the trout caught at Little Bognor were returned which is good to see. The biggest fish of the week was 5lb 12ozs, caught at Little Springs. Two 4lb trout were caught at Great Springs and Luffs produced a 5lb fish.

A wide variety of flies produced fish including the Blue Flash Damsel and the GRHE. Fish were moving well at Little Springs this afternoon and were feeding just under the surface.

River – the season opens on Saturday and the river is looking very good. The water level is slightly higher than normal but the water is not coloured. There is a good chance of an overwintered fish this weekend.
