Lakes – members visited the lakes on 90 occasions and caught a total of 140 trout, 105 of which were returned. Most fish were caught at Luffs including one at 6lbs. A wide variety of flies caught fish including Mayfly nymphs and dry flies. A 4lb trout was caught at Little Springs and a 5lb brownie was captured at Little Bognor.
The Mayfly hatch should be at its peak at the lakes next week and it would be worthwhile persevering with a dry fly.
River – members visited the river on 6 occasions and caught 5 trout, 4 of which were returned. Fishing a weighted nymph under trees and alongside weedbeds should produce a fish or two. Mayflies should start to hatch on the river next week, the hatch on the river lags the hatch at the lakes.
