Sunday 28th June 2015
A magic overcast and drizzly start to the day – it is 09.00 and four fly fishers are making the most of it
Flies that have been productive over the last few days are ; Orange Blob, Black Buzzer, GRHE, Black Damsel, Stalking Bug, Humungus, Minkie, Cul De Canard, Mayfly nymph, Damsel, GH Daddy, Viva, Montana, Cat Whisker
With the fishing becoming increasingly challenging I have relaxed the time on the tickets i.e the two fish ticket which is normally three hours can be as long as you like!!!
The water temperature is just hanging below the crucial 19 degrees hence I
restocked/topped up both lakes on Thursday. This mornings rain is a real refreshing treat for
those precious Rainbows . Generally Stillwater Fly Fishing
becomes increasingly difficult as the temperature climbs the main factors being lack of appetite ( it is
thought that the fish ‘lose their appetite’ when the water hits 19/20 degrees) and oxygen deficiency
( water cannot hold on to great amounts of
oxygen when warm)
The temperatures look set to soar from Tuesday onward – as soon as the water temp. hits 19/20 I will open the lakes to any method fishing for Rainbows to get as many out as possible before the Summer truly sets in – I will keep you posted
Our second Open Day – Fly Fishing and Gundog Game Fair is rapidly looming up – Saturday 11th July 10.am – 4.00 pm – details about the day are on our website and Facebook page.
Help Request – If any one of our regular Fly Fishers would like to ‘volunteer’ to run a Casting Competition on our Open Day/ Fly Fishing Fair
Please contact me . I would like to run two , a Distance
and a Target
one . I have all the kit just need the staff to staff it !!
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.
