Tight Lines

Anglers are reporting excellent days and evenings on the river. One visitor reported catching more than a dozen Trout with nothing less than a pound in weight and a novice fly angler enjoyed 9 similar fish on his first outing, all safely released.

June 16th is almost here, anglers who wish to take fish for the table after that date are respectfully reminded that the stocked trout are marked with a spot between the gills. This gives us the opportunity to return wild trout to the river unharmed.

The river will be stocked once more with similar sized and marked fish , meanwhile Sea Trout are being seen and a little rain to freshen things up will help. If you’re going to be fishing after dark please remember to display your parking badge so that club bailiffs can identify unexpected visitors. If you are aware of any suspicious anglers please report this to the club, any help from members really does help us to protect YOUR fishing rights.

Don’t forget, the EA has byelaws applying to hook sizes after darkness, no need to be caught out, to be safe you can view the EA Regulations and bye-laws using the link to the side of this page.

Have a great summer, tight lines.
