The first week of the season at Witton Castle Lakes has been a busy one, even without the promised warmer weather – conditions on Monday and Wednesday were particularly bad. However a total of 78 visiting anglers came through the gates and enjoyed a very busy week returning an astounding rod average of over 10 fish.
Witton Castle Lakes have a new stock of locally tied flies for sale to visiting anglers, flies that we believe are far superior to many commercially tied flies. All the flies in stock are flies that are known to catch fish on our lakes, they have been tied by one of our volunteers G.Wharton, who whiled away many an hour over the winter period. There is a large range available in the fishing lodge all at very reasonable prices. And remember to keep an eye on the notice board in the lodge informing anglers of the best performers for a particular day or week.
After the recent freezing temperatures (and frozen lakes) the weather was favourable and quite mild for Witton Castle Lakes’ 2015 season opening weekend. A total of 27 visiting anglers for Saturday alone dusted off their fishing tackle in anticipation of a great days angling. They certainly weren’t disappointed, as the day proved to be one of the busiest for them on record with a total catch of 343 fish! Giving anglers a more than impressive rod average of 12.7.
Witton Castle Lakes will close after Sunday 22nd February in preparation for our 2015 season opening weekend on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th March, when will be open both days from 8.00am for ticket sales and fishing commences from 8.15am.
