MILLENNIUM TROUT LAKE 12th June

The trout lake is now open for bait fishing. Prices are the same as the coarse lakes. Should you catch a trout or two you are welcome to keep them. Please be aware that sometimes boating/water activities will take place on the lake.

(29.4.2018) The fish-off for the 2017 TroutMasters took place today with 4 anglers competing to win and move onto the final at Draycote Fishery in October. Peter Gander won the day with his 4 fish bag weighing in the heaviest, one of his trout weighed in at 4lb 9oz! Peter Edwards came second, being bested by only 2oz! He to had a good fish that went 4lb 10oz. Mike Villalard and Tom Jeffes put up a valiant effort and both enjoyed the experience.

Remember the Millennium Lake is a registered TroutMasters water, so please do fill in those entry cards and send them in! Any fish 3lb and over is worth sending in and you may make it through to our lake final next year and maybe even into the grand final held at Grafham reservoir! The top three fish of each month at our lake receive a TroutMasters badge to sew onto your cap!

Please remember that ALL Brown trout are to be returned.  If you should get a good picture of these, or for that matter any of the trout from the lake I would love to have a copy and be able to put some new photos up on the website. Just send them through to my email address.

Hope to see you on the bank soon!

RIB COARSE FISHING LAKE 10th July

A lot of fish can be seen cruising enjoying the Sun, so surface and zigs worth a go. Some fish still showing signs of spawning. Weed growth has increased and we have started to clear some of the swims. I hope to get some more done this week. Also some nice Roach and Tench showing up in places.

Look for signs of life before setting up, a 5min walk around the lake before starting could mean the difference between catching and not!

WESTMILL COARSE FISHING LAKE 10th July

A lot of Bream showing at the moment and the Carp starting to show more as well! Wednesdays Tackle Shop evening match had good weights with the winner at 50lb, second with 48lb and third with 46lb 4oz.
