The rainbow lakes have been restocked and as the temperature has dropped significantly, catch and release is back. As always, we urge members to be ultra-careful when releasing fish. – Andrew Thompson

It was difficult fishing last week, hopefully the rainbow lakes will cool down during September and the usual excellent end-of-season fishing can commence.

8 August – Catch Returns

The hot weather continues, river water temperature is 18 degrees. Trout can be found in the hour before dark. Please don’t return fish that are slow to recover.

All of the fish caught from the lakes were from Little Bognor where the springs are keeping the water temperature down.

The fields are burnt to a crisp, the ground is like concrete but the river is flowing and there are trout hiding under the trees and streamer weed. Very early morning and late evening are the best times to fish. Please do not return trout if they are slow to revive.

A 6lb sea trout was caught and returned from Beat B, Taylors Bridge.

Now that the hot weather has ended the fishing should improve and the recent rain should encourage the sea trout up the river.
