A reminder once again of the EA Hotline number should you suspect people are stealing fish from any of our waters 0800807060. The more calls that are received about possible incidents the more likely the EA are to increase patrols in the area concerned.
A quiet week for reports but on the River Great Ouse at Wyboston Roger Wills banked a specimen 6lb 12oz chub and Alan Wilkie managed a 4lb 14oz chub. Nearby on the South Lagoon Simon Heath tempted an 8lb pike and 10lb 2oz Zander with Tim Scarff landing two unseasonal tench of 5lb 2oz and 4lb 10oz.
