Some more pics (courtesy of Anita Atkinson) from last Wednesday’s ladies fishing evening at the lakes with the members of Wolsingham Women’s Institute.
Improved conditions through the week saw improved visitor numbers to Witton Castle Lakes trout fishery. We welcomed 62 visiting anglers through the gates, who all found the going (described as) ‘very hard’ and just managed to scrape a rod average of 2.
The marked improvement in weather conditions made for a more bearable week at Witton Castle Lakes, even though anglers still found the going quite tough. We welcomed more through the gates this week, 59 visiting anglers fished the lakes and retuned a rod average of 3.2.
As you may already be aware, the fishing lodge at Witton Castle Lakes was recently broken into and a lot of ground work tools were stolen. In order to raise funds to help replace this equipment it has been suggested by some members that we have fundraising activities at the Annual General Meeting in November.
Therefore, we are looking for prizes to either be raffled or auctioned off at the AGM. If you would like to donate an item please contact the membership secretary with your name, address and telephone number and the item you wish to donate – if the item is for auction please let us know your reserve price. All donations, whatever their value, will be greatly appreciated and helpful towards the club.
