So we now move into Winter and lots of anglers will put their tackle away but there is sport still to be had in the shape of good size silvers and the odd Carp will turn up from time to time for those willing to put the hours in.

Looking back it’s been a really positive season as we have taken a long term lease on Millbrook Dam and regular work parties will be held over the winter months with the aim of having the water in a more angler friendly condition by Spring with the likely-hood that we will have stocked or stocking plans will be in place.

A Bio Mass survey is booked with the EA and this will take place hopefully just after Xmas and this will give the club a definitive figure on stock thus allowing us to make informed decisions on stocking the water.

A comprehensive planting program is also planned for the Spring.

Unfortunately our affiliation with Walkerwood has ended with United Utilities deciding to end all fishing. We are in contact with United utilities and hope this is not the end for this venue.

Catches on our 3 waters have been very encouraging all season and we have seen growth in the fish we stocked year on year and we expect this will continue.

Several of the committee and bailiffs attended and evening organised jointly by the Angling Trust and EA to discuss fishery enforcement and as is the way with these things lots of other subject were also covered. These are always very useful to attend as new contacts can be made and a wealth of information that is useful to the club is available.

Below are a few pictures submitted in the last couple of months:
