25th April, 2017 Warrington Anglers Association Guardian Notes
James Rogers reports plenty of action at Worthington Lakes despite the level being dropped for inspection works. Using a maggot feeder and double red on the hook he caught fourteen bream to 3.5lbs along with some quality roach. Regular carp catches although no records are being broken.
Mike Pritchard who dramatically had his previous week's session cut short on Statham Pool when his wife locked herself out of the house more than made up for it this week. He fished his usual small waggler tactics using maggot and finally caster which brought on better stamp roach to the 10oz mark plus a bonus carp of around 8lbs that gave him a few nail biting moments on his 18's hook to 1.5 hook length. He had about fifty fish and reports a lot of small pike activity so probably worth a visit.
On the 1st May the committee are introducing some changes in an effort to improve peg accessibility for members during the summer months on Sandiway lakes. It means simply that those ending their night session must leave the water by 12noon on their last day and those coming on for the night must not access the fishery before 2pm. The idea is that this gives everyone a chance of a peg and prevents pegs being handed on to mates.
Our Disabled & Over 60's match fished on the Bridgewater Canal at Daresbury on Monday was a close run thing with barely half a pound between the first four places. John Dagnall led the field with 3-10-8 taken on pole and alternating between bread and pinkie. Lenny (End Peg) Dutton was less than an ounce behind in the runner up spot with 3-10-4. Catches were mainly roach and small skimmers with the exception of Stan Charnock who weighed an eel of 1.5lbs. Please note there is no match next week due to the bank holiday.
Please note there is a working party at Grey Mist Mere this weekend and it is closed from 10am Saturday morning and only those who attend the working party can fish Saturday night.
There is also one on Sunday morning at The Mount starting at 9am. There is a regular group of volunteers so if you fancy joining them please ask for Derek Cowell or Brian Jones on site.
WAA Headquarters at 52, Parker Street are open as usual every Friday between 7 & 9pm for new members, subscriptions, night permit renewals, and any queries. Please email catch details to firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a ring on 01928 716238.
