Submitted by Bas van Klaveren on 04-06-2014
The last 2 weeks at High Mill Lake have been wet, stormy and wild for quite some days, as Central France suffered from heavy storms. Fortunately, the catches were still quite good as Andy, Tracey and Tony Davies-Patrick report:
17 - 24 May
A quiet week with only 6 anglers on fishing swims 8, 9, 11 and the chalet. The weather remained cold for his time of year and wet and the fish were still all up the top end waiting to spawn. Piet on peg 9 had 2 fish to 48lb 6oz, Mike and Diego on 11 had 28 fish from 35 runs, on a mixture of tigernuts or banana pop-ups, with 11 over 30lb, 3 over 40lb and a common at a little over 53lb giving them an average for the week of 30lb 8oz. Harrie and Kevin up on 8 had more runs, 55, and landed 44 of them, mainly on tigernuts and a few on Robin Red and Garlic. With 15 over 30lb, 8 over 40lb Kevin managed to break his PB several times during the week. There were again some stunning small fish so a great week for all the lads. Overall average for the week 29lb 5oz at High Mill Lake.
