It’s been reported that September has been the driest for over 50 years and so it has shown with the warm and sunny conditions retuning to Witton Castle Lakes. Again, this has been reflected in the numbers with just 51 anglers visiting the lakes to fish, returning a rod average of 2.
After the bright and sunny conditions of the last few weeks Witton Castle Lakes welcomed a week of cooler temperatures and near constant cloud cover. The visiting numbers rose to 72 as anglers took advantage of the improved conditions and better sporting action to fish the lakes.
A limited number of tickets are still available for the Bishop Auckland District Angling Club’s annual ‘End of Season’ dinner. To be held at The 68 Cafe (A68 Toft Hill) on Saturday 8th of November at 7pm, with tickets priced at £25 per person which includes a four course roast beef dinner. There will also be an auction of fishing tackle and related items on the evening, with proceeds going to support the angling club. Anyone interested in purchasing tickets, or booking a table, should contact the club membership secretary – Keith Robson on: 01388 818 720 or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
