The return of the rains has had many anglers making taking to the rivers in the hope of catching the runs of salmon and sea trout. This has kept the numbers low at Witton Castle Lakes with just 34 visiting anglers fishing the lakes. Those anglers who did visit enjoyed a week of good sporting action which was reflected in the rod average – a very healthy 4.2.

Tommy Carr, one of our much liked and regular anglers, celebrated his 95th birthday today (Tuesday 30th) with a session at the lakes. Certainly no stranger to the lakes, Tommy, from Sunderland, has fished here for over 40 years and still thinks it’s a great place to visit. He’s no stranger either to the weekly totals with his name appearing on the list on a regular basis. Tommy even remembers fishing at the lakes in the days before the lodge was built – when there were no facilities and you had to be creative if you needed to go. He fished the lakes with his son-in-law John and caught himself a couple of fish to celebrate. As a birthday gift the lakes management presented him with two vouchers for complementary fishing at the lakes.
