Head Water Keeper Matt Davis had a good day on the Kenn peg 9. Two big bream, two tench, 25 eels and a small mirror carp. He also hooked another “zoo creature “, second time within a week and broke another rod! He still hasn’t seen whatever he’s been hooking.Do you want to catch the Kenn Monster? Yes…. Then get down there but make sure you tie one end of a rope around a tree and the other end around your waist!
River Kenn in great condition at the moment. Today Barry Fowler was on peg 7 and had a lovely bag of fish on the waggler (photo below). Head Water Keeper Matt Davis was on peg 8 and had 40 eels plus broke his rod on a big fish (unseen).

Now this is a turn up for the books, a rainbow trout at 2lb 8oz caught from peg 16 on the Kenn, long pole and double red maggot. We suspect it is an escapee from Jacklands Trout Fishery in Tickenham and made its way down the stream and onto Nailsea Moor before finally reaching the Kenn.
Stephen Wills with his surprise catch which was returned.
It is with great sadness that I have to announce the passing of our long serving member Brian Hobson who loved fishing the River Kenn in all winds and weather. Brian lost his long battle with cancer. Our sincere condolences to his family.
