AUGUST

LAKES REPORT

Dear Fellow Trout Anglers

 

On Friday 24th July we restocked Rawlsbury (both Chapmans and Cowleaze). Again, we have restocked with hard fighting, great eating rainbow trout of the excellent average size and great condition we have all been enjoying.

 

We have carried on our work of maintaining the bank sides, keeping good access to the waters edge with many open areas for fishing (as well as the platforms) but maintaining the natural look, feel and beauty of this fishery. Whilst the weed is growing (slowly) in Chapmans it is in no way hindering fishing and is providing natural food sources for the trout. The weed in Cowleaze has grown more strongly so we have taken extra measures to remove weed and open up several areas for better fishing. The fishery is looking in great shape and I would like to thank all those that continue to help keep it that way.

 

As we approach high summer and (hopefully!) get more sunny, warm, balmy days it can pay to search for shady areas and deeper water (which we have in this fishery) or fish smaller flies. Do remember that these fish can be large and can test leaders and knots to the limit so please be wary of fishing too light.

 

There are further notes from my previous updates below (and copied on the website) which may prove helpful and useful reminders that we still have Coronavirus out there so please continue to take appropriate precautions. Can I also thank everyone for emailing me their catch returns, including nil returns. This information is essential for me to be able to judge how the fishing is going and, importantly, when to restock. Please keep up your efforts on this front - thank you.

 

Finally, if you are a member and reading this on the website and would like to receive these updates by email and are not currently getting them, please email me so I can include you on my circulation list

 

Enjoy the fishing - it’s great!! Tight lines

 

Nigel

Game Secretary
