NEWSLETTER EARLY MARCH 2014

The floods of earlier this year are starting to abate, the level of the River Colne has fallen back and the colour has dropped out a bit making access to the swims a little easier than it has been, however it’s still a bit boggy down the bottom end. If you intend going down to the bottom end of the fishery wellingtons or better still waders are advisable.

ChubThe River Colne is still producing decent fish – barbel to 12lbs are not uncommon but need to be worked for, and one amazing chub of over 9lb has been caught, a fish of a lifetime by anyone’s standards. (click pic right to enlarge)

Carp are still being caught from the Flood Relief Lake, two 16lb fish being taken last weekend.

Latest catch from the River Colne – a barbel of 14lb 6oz for John Winkfield.

So there is still chance to catch a decent fish whether you’re a still water or river angler before the end of the season, and of course there is still Moor Lane.

storm damage 1For those of you who have been fishing the River Colne you will have noticed the number of trees that have fallen this winter, the combined effect of flood conditions and high winds have taken their toll. (see photos right, click to enlarge)

The amount of work required to clear up the debris and get the fishery back into shape for the beginning of the new season in June is going to be much greater than we normally experience. We also need to be able to do our normal clean-up of Moor Lane as soon as possible after the end of the season.

storm damage 2This amount of work is too much to expect from the regular work party volunteers, we will need many more of you to help this year.
