Chatton Trout Fishery, Northumberland
Anglers braving the cold weather conditions this week have enjoyed good sport using Diawl Bachs, Buzzers, black and green lures, Cat’s Whiskers and Bloodworms. The two areators situated on Chatton Lake have been working well but unfortunately were unable to keep up with cold conditions on Saturday evening making limited spaces available on Sunday. Apologies to anglers who were unable to fish that day. A free fishing session for David Wafer from Wallsend using his full loyalty card, saw him tempt a 5lb rainbow caught from Ross Lake on a Yellow Bloodworm. New Chatton Ladies Club Angling member Sue Greenwood from Ashington was delighted with her 5lb 4oz rainbow. Keith Watson from Stakeford kept 5 fish with a total bag weight of 16lb, also returning a further 8 fish. Ali Tait from Morpeth returned a 12lb 3oz rainbow to Ross Lake. Rob Hall from Morpeth enjoyed a couple of day’s sport, returning 17 fish on his first visit, including his first tiger trout, using a Bunny Leech and Diawl Bachs. On his second visit he returned 12 fish using Cat’s Whiskers and Bunny Leeches. Davie Parker from Wallsend caught 15 fish using a Black Diawl Bach. Rob Frame from West Denton returned 15 fish using Buzzers and Diawl Bachs.
The Chatton Ladies Angling Club Annual General Meeting was held on Saturday January 20, followed by fishing. Three members caught 5 fish between them, another fun day with great company. We will be meeting on Saturday February 17 2018, new members welcome.
The fishery will be closing at 4.30pm this week.
