Well, the unseasonably warm and sunny weather conditions have again persisted through the week at Witton Castle Lakes, making the going very difficult for anglers on all of the lakes. We welcomed 55 visiting anglers who took their chances in the less than ideal angling conditions.

The unseasonably warm weather returned to Witton Castle Lakes last week, it made the going difficult for the 55 visiting anglers who turned up to fish the lakes. Although the overall catch rate was good with anglers returning a healthy rod average of 3.
Bright sunshine and flat calm conditions at the beginning of the week made fishing very difficult at Witton Castle Lakes with a catch average of 2 fish per angler. As the week progressed the more overcast conditions saw good hatches of olives and black buzzers and anglers enjoyed some very good ‘top of the water’ sport when the catch average was 3.5 fish per angler.
After a total washout at Witton Castle Lakes on Monday the week improved significantly and welcomed 50 visiting anglers. The total catch for the week reached a decent 170 fish, giving a rod average of 3.5.
The best bags of the week were D.Graham and P.Maysbell with 13 fish each, N.Hodgson with 12 and M.Cromar with 9 fish. Best flies this week have been black & olive ‘f’ flies, shipmans, black buzzer and yellow blob.
One angler caught a tagged fish but unfortunately he hadn’t paid the extra £1, so he couldn’t claim the £50 bonus and had to return the fish.
