Dear Fellow Trout Anglers


Winterbourne Zelston


As sure as day turns to night, autumn has arrived and with it, autumn rains. Not really what we might want, but it is good news for Winterbourne Zelston. The water level has now started to rise and we’re looking at stocking with hard fighting, great eating, fresh trout in the next week or two. I will confirm as usual when we have restocked. At that point, any remaining “end of season special” tickets - the £30 three fish ticket - will become invalid and we’ll revert to normal day ticketing at Zelston. If you do have an end of season special ticket and haven’t caught your three trout, it might be worth giving it a go before we restock. I had one more trout to catch on my second £30 ticket so I took my fly rod down a couple of days ago and was quickly rewarded with a beautiful 3lb rainbow - lean but not skinny, very strong with a big tail and great stamina and in excellent condition. The water is crystal clear with plenty of open water to fish in and, even though fish spotting conditions weren’t ideal, I did see two or three other trout.




Remember, Rawlsbury season ends on 31st October too. I’ve attached a couple of photo’s of work on Viners from a couple of weeks ago, where we removed, by hand, reedmace and opened the bridge up to access the top end. Good for the end of this season - great for next season. A very big thank you to everyone that has helped with all the work parties over this year - great work and great fun too - thank you.


Tight lines and stay safe everyone
