Spring angling event to be staged

Anglers were hoping to carry on the good work from the excellent opening weekend at Carsington Fishery - until the snow put paid to all that.

The water had fished well until the white stuff fell and access to site was near impossible.

Once again, a mixture of newly stocked and over wintered fish were caught with many being over 3lbs.

The rod average for the opening weekend was 6.07 with 91 fish caught by 15 anglers.

The heaviest rainbow was 3¾lbs, caught by Mr D J Webber.

The Carsington Spring Open Competition is on Saturday, April 13. The competition is aimed at all anglers who enjoy a day’s boat fishing with a friend.

It will be an organised event based on two people per boat with an individual bag limit of six fish.

The cost of entry will be £60 per boat including permits and boat hire.
