Open House at Pitsford Water 20 February – fishery opens 27 February
Come and meet Anglian Water’s fisheries team from 10am to 3pm. This is a great opportunity to meet with fishery staff. There’s also the chance to brush up on your casting skills with Peter Hartley our senior coach. As well as the usual rods Peter’s going to have a couple of salmon rods handy for anyone who wants to try double handed casting. Flash Attack Flies and Snowbee will be present. Light refreshments will be served, copies of our new Hooked 2016 magazine will be available and season permits will be on sale.
Fisheries Manager Jon Marshall says “We are really looking forward to meeting anglers for a chat about the new season. One of the highlights will be the draw from last season’s ticket returns which will see one lucky angler winning a Gold Season ticket to fish the 2016 season for free!”
Ravensthorpe opens Friday 26 February
Plans for the new season are well under way, with expectations high for some good sized fish. The star of the show at the beginning of last season was a 12lb 10oz Rainbow taken by Richard Cooper.
Grafham Water opens Friday 4 March
2016 promises to be a golden year for Grafham as the fishery celebrates its 50th Birthday and we look forward to another exceptional season.
Rutland Water opens Friday 11 March
It will be an early start to the season with Rutland Water opening on Friday 11 March. Stocking will commence very early in March with Rainbows and Browns. Any overwintered fish showing at the start of the season should be in tremendous condition.
