The best months for Trout fishing at Seighford Lakes is now upon us, the colder the better for us as the Trout thrive in the cold water, lets just hope it doesn’t get too cold out there and freeze us over. As for the weather at the moment it is as close to perfect as we can get. That’s why this week we have put a bigger stocking than usual in, both lakes are being stocked on Thursday 4th December, there will also be a stocking going in before Christmas. (23rd)

Taking a break from Carp Fishing, Neil Snowy (Penkridge) has swapped the big pit reels and 40lb+ Carp to have his hand at fly fishing . Being over a year since his last go at casting a fly, he soon got to grips with things landing this cracking looking 3lb – 4lb fish. Neil managed a further three fish, so taking his bag limit of four fish home. He took the fish from the end peg of the Swan Neck Pool using an Olive Damsel on a floating line.

Christ Ector had the best brace this week taking these two beauties , giving a combined weight of 16lb 4oz. Chris caught both these fish off the island on the Swan Neck Pool. Kev Faulkner made top rod again this week landing 22 fish over both pools on Sunday morning.

We will be holding our annual Boxing day meet up on the lakes. As always we have a few things for you all to have a go at, the biggest fish of the day will win a free day’s fishing in 2015, the biggest brace of fish will also land a free day’s fishing in 2015 and the first fish caught of the day and bought back to the lodge will win a free days fishing in 2015 (One prize per person) I know this is a family day, but a few hours on the banks over the Christmas Holiday can’t be beat, so i will be offering discounts on Father – Son tickets for the first time ever.
