Witton Castle Lakes report w/e 6th June

We had a slow start to the week at Witton Castle Lakes no doubt due to the blustery conditions and cooler temperatures. But the week picked up as the weather improved and we welcomed a total of 70 anglers who came to enjoy their sport and they returned a decent rod average of 3.2.

Northumberland Annual Draw Winners

The Northumberland branch of the Salmon & Trout Association held their annual draw last year, giving away a day’s fishing for 2 rods at Witton Castle Lakes, to be taken during 2015.

The 2 lucky anglers were Tony Lawson and Michael Pickering, both bailiffs on the Derwent, who made their visit to the lakes on Saturday.

Both anglers upgraded to 3-fish tickets and chanced their hand in very blustery conditions. The wind didn’t have any effect their outing though, especially Tony, who landed a very impressive 6lb+ rainbow, who’s pictured here with his catch.
