Another very good coarse fishing season draws to a close this weekend at the Nar Valley Fisheries complex.

Fenn lake has probably been the most consistent water, popping out quality carp to 37lb and Wels catfish to 60lb 2oz, and this week has turned up a number of 20lb-plus carp to finish off.

Lake Geneva has produced numerous 20lb and 30lb carp, with a few slipping over 40lb throughout the season, and continues to do so to the end. This week four 30lb-plus carp have been reported with the best a 35lb 8oz mirror, backed up by plenty of double figure and 20lb fish. Tickets for the new season will be on sale at the beginning of April.

Hobbs lake Trout fishery will be hosting an open day on April 8 to introduce anglers to the 25-acre season ticket water. Gates open at 9am. On the day you will be able to talk to staff and existing members and try the fishery; catch and release fishing is free on the day. For information call Chris on 07900 285313.
