16 June 2019 - River Wid
The 2019 river season started on Sunday June 16th. Many thanks to the members who turned out for the river Wid work party - especially Peter and Mike (the machete) who, even though they did not fish, still worked hard clearing bank side vegetation. By the afternoon we had a dozen fishable swims.
Despite rain showers and low clear water levels red maggots and worms scored with chub dace and roach being caught in the deeper/darker swims. I hope to see more members bank side soon and ask that you submit any catch returns/information etc as it will benefit all.

16 June 2018 - River Wid Writtle 16/17th June 2018
The open season/weekend on the river Wid saw a few new members trying this delightful stretch of water. Although river levels were low – following weeks with no rain – everyone managed to find a suitable swim. Big thanks to my bailiff Barry for his efforts scything nettles and cutting weeds. Red maggot scored but if the minnows got too much a switch to bigger baits worm, luncheon meat or sweetcorn proved productive.
Dace, chub, roach and perch are the prevalent species, for bigger fish try the deeper darker pools.
