Not good

For the Wear

The latest fish fount figures for October have been added to the lists. Whilst 4516 took the Riding Mill fish pass on the Tyne to take the yearly figure up to 32852 this figure is roughly equal with the last few years and a good sign. The Wear however only had 1184 fish through the Framwellgate weirs to take the seasons total to 7586. This is one of the lowest on record for the Wear and only bears out what members and other clubs have said that it has been a really poor year on the river for migratory fish and fishing. At least the beauty of our club is that, unlike other clubs, members do have other rivers to fish throughout the season. 

Having just stated on the last post that the Till was fishing reasonably well it has now come into full spate and stopped the fishing. Ah well, that means it's either Thornton Steward or Rothley Lake for trout fishing.
