Well the new season has started and its off to a flying start with a new lake record for Hithermoor of 36lb 8oz,s the big common on the first day of the season. I was lucky enough to witness this immaculate looking fish caught by Gavin, well done.
There have been a number of fish out of hithermoor some old like Two Tone at 27lb and a lot of new up and coming fish from 6lb to 15lb which is very good for the future of the fisheries as well as the new members young and old getting amongst the fish with new PB,s.
We have also seen an unpresidented amount of Bream out from skimmers to a whopping 12lb 6oz.
Tench out to over 5lb and two Barbel out of the flood relief. Plenty of silver fish coming out with bags of 15lb plus reported. River colne had a slow start but has now caught up with lots of Roach ,Perch ,Dace and bleak reported a 5lb 9oz Chub from the upper end and Barbel to double figures from all parts, You no when the river is fishing well because the Barbel anglers are quiet !. Moor lane has,nt stopped with carp on the long lake up to 20lb and in numbers too, Tench to over 7lb and Bream plus reports of Rudd perch and pike. Front lake has fished slow but reports are Tench , Rudd , Carp , Perch and Pike. In all a very good start to the season and lets hope a very good year. Last Thursday night at the Club meeting it was Trophy night for everybody that put forward there catches from last season a great night was had by all that attended. The winners received a Trophy plus certificates and badge relevant to species caught. Unfortunately Not all trophys were awarded as no entrys were made for some species so please record your catches photo them and get them witnessed so next year we can award them all.
