Lockwood Beck Catch Return Sunday 23rd to Saturday 29th September 2012

95 Anglers have caught 159 rainbows to 5lb 8oz
Rod average 1.7
64 fish were kept at an average weight of 2lb 6oz

The weather conditions have made fishing difficult and kept numbers low this week. When we get some settled conditions the fishing will improve. Anglers should try fishing up and down the water the water column to find were the fish are feeding. During October Anglers can use the £20 4fish evening permit as a full day permit. Day boats are now £10 and outboards £5.
Anglers are reminded that the Brown Trout season ends at midnight on Sunday 30th of September
