The first frost of the season greeted the 11 anglers that attended the matvh on the canal on the LGCAA Poppyhill complex. The early morning cloud gave way to a bright blue sky and dazzling sunshine but this did not help lift the temperatures much above freezing.

The river Ouzel at Stoke Hammond looked idyllic for the return interclub match between LGCAA and Leighton Buzzard.  Sadly the first frost of winter, bright sunny skies, low water levels and only gentle flow combined to spoil the day. Leighton Buzzard opted to hold the match on sections C/D of the river which normally produce good bags of fish this time of year, but bites were at a premium with almost half of the field failing to catch.

The first interclub match of the season for Letchworth Garden City Angling Association was held on the river Ouse at Felmersham, with the guest coming from Leighton Buzzard.
Little rain had fallen over the last few weeks which allowed the river to flow, slow and clear. Vegetation growth in the river was still high which put a few pegs out of action but a nice sunny day made for a pleasant day out.

7 Anglers turned up for the clubs first outing on the river Ouse at Felmersham.

After several weeks of low rainfall the river was down nearly a foot and running slow and clear. The temperatures rose during the day but were tempered by the constant wind blowing down the river which gave anglers using the pole at full length a problem with presentation.

Sunday 28th June 2015

LGCAA’s first visit of this season to How End fisheries was greeted with overcast skies and rain not far off! The lake of the day was Danni’s and Steve Mayes set the pace with a fish within the first few minutes of the starting whistle.  Rain had then set in for most of the morning and early afternoon but eventually giving way to clearer skies and increased fish activity.
