Bill Morris Shares His Thoughts on Fishing Early in the Season
‘The fishing season for 2022 has kicked off and things are stirring on the riverbanks down in Brokenborough. The two beats are running clear and low with some blanket weed on the bottom because of the winter nitrate release from the fields. A wet April would improve things greatly, rather like last year’s wet spring which, was a delight for the anglers. Major showers just before the Mayfly kicked-off resulting in the best fishing ever experienced by the season rods – long may it continue.
‘I took a walk on opening day and saw fish rising to olives, but they will prove difficult to catch until the undergrowth gives anglers the cover they need. The path down to the hut on beat one is slippery now, please take care and use the rope provided. A large pike was seen at the bottom of beat two and there seems to be the usual number of Herons about. Hopefully this shows there is a healthy stock of trout. My advice would be that gold heads work at this time of year and be sure to cast into all the likely holes. Give it a go for an early fish and I look forward to seeing you on the bank.’
