A good weeks fishing early morning fly fishers have had rainbows jumping onto to rods and those signing in later
have had to work a little harder to take their fish.
Mike Sinclair got Monday off to a good start with A Tattooed fish, a regular 2lb er from the bottom lake he took a Pot of £165 . Which leaves one more in the Top lake at the moment the Pot stands at £110.
The water is in pristine condition, cool, clear and well stocked (always helps when we have a few fish in ) - we top up with our weekly restocking this afternoon so both lakes topped up for the weekend.
Flies of the week all the normal cultprits PTN, Buzzer, Damsel, CATS Whisker,
, Bloodworm,GRHE, Orange lures.,
I recommend you bring a mix of lines ; floating, intermediate, sinking .
The Met Check weather forecast looks good for Saturday , no rain, little wind, Sunday could be rain in the afternoon, Monday looks great.

Our little jewel in Worcestershire offers the Fly Fisher a peacefull and tranqil venue. Conservation plays a crucial role; benefits include increasing the entomology of the lakes, hence encouraging and establishing flourishing flora and fauna which inturn attract a diverse and fascinating range of birds and mammals.
We are a small privately owned Trout Fishery: the lakes were first developed in 1971. In 1992/3 the two lakes were drained and deepened opening for fishing in 1994. They are well established and naturalised set amongst forty acres of unspoilt beautiful Worcestershire countryside.
The Lenches Lakes offer a unnique picturesque venue for functions such as Corporate Entertainment, Dinners,Lunches,Parties and Weddings
We are a certified Caravan Club Site offering five quiet pitches with electric hook ups, water and elsan point.
We welcome Tents and Motorhomes on another area of the estate also with electric hook ups, water and elsan point.
