We’ve had unseasonably warm weather at Witton Castle Lakes this week and have even seen hatches of buzzers, daddies and hoppers to keep anglers busy. We welcomed 39 visiting anglers through the gates who returned a decent rod average of just under 3.
A few tickets remain for next Saturday’s BADAC fundraiser at Crook Football Club, featuring live entertainment from Keith Abbott and the Golden Years – playing a selection of 50’s and 60’s favourites.
If you’re quick tickets can be purchased from the football club on 07962 305152 or Brian on 07768 914974
This video from Finland shows the potential environmental and economic impact of cormorants and includes some horrific images of the damage to the landscape in one part of that country:
You can find information and contact details for our Fishery Management Advisors (FMAs) at: www.anglingtrust.net/fma
The FMAs, Jake Davoile and Richard Bamforth, want to hear from fisheries, riparian owners and angling clubs to be able to assist with protection from cormorants and goosanders. So if you know of a venue affected near you, please encourage the fishery, riparian owner or club to contact their FMA.
Temperatures dropped and winds picked through the second half of the week at Witton Castle Lakes and with the season drawing to a close the lakes saw a quiet week. We welcomed 39 dedicated anglers who braved the chilly conditions and returned a reasonable rod average of 3.3.
