The EA are giving us 500 roach and 500 skimmers from their Claverton Fish Farm as part of the winter re-stocking program. Not sure of the date though but every little helps.
The weed on the Kenn has gone so let’s get fishing…….
Numerous species showed during a small Club Match on 6th October.
Barry Fowlers won with 15lb plus from peg 20 made up mainly of 3 tench and a few skimmers he also lost a big bream at the net.
Secretary Ivan Currie caught a bag of roach and perch from peg 16 weighing in 6lb 11oz and 2nd place.
3rd was Scott Smallwood with 4lb 11oz from peg 18.
The river flowed all day and can only improve from now on.
PS…Barry always looks like this!
Ivan certainly caught the most fish
Scott’s best perch went over 2lbs
Today Monday 9th Sept the EA are out clearing weed from the river. Looks like they are doing a great job.
