Happy New Year
Maybe the scaremongers were right all those years ago warning of dire consequences of global warming – as we can see form this incredibly warm Winter continue. The lakes have now been at a constant temperature since October, having only 2 frosts. The grass has never stopped growing although conditions would suit rice production with all the rain we have had.
The daffodils are now coming into flower and unbelievably we have large trees with leaves appearing – what this all means I am not sure !
The knock on for fishing during December was interesting – with weed still growing and lots of natural food, normal Winter patterns weren’t that successful with the best results on Blue Damsel , Montana and Black Buzzer. there have been a huge amount of fish rising particularly in the afternoon.
The Artic Char have also been slower to feed, because the water temperatures are higher that then like, although good numbers have been caught with some lovely specimens coming out.
As we go into January I hope we might see some more normal weather arriving, with a good cold snap to bring conditions back to normal, although I should be careful what I wish for.
The Fishery is open every day during January and the club room is nice an cosy for a break from fishing – so if you are hardy enough come on in!
We are open to Day Tickets until 13th March – if you fancy getting a group together, please let us know and we can set up the club room for you to have your lunch together – although the local pub The Cricketers does great food.
Any questions or queries please drop us an email or call the office number.
Enjoy your fishing – we look forward to welcoming you to Duncton very soon.
