River levels

The Angling Trust has put a useful website on the internet for finding river levels; one I use when planning a fishing trip on the river.

 

The web address is www.fishinginfo.co.uk.

 

Click on the 'Find A River Level' tab and enter 'Langport' in the search box.

This will show a map of river level measuring stations in the Langport area.

I find the 'Monks Lease Wq' at Combe and the 'Oath' at Oath Lock locations give meaningful levels for the river.

Beware the level at 'Westover' which is the river side of the Westover Pumping Station opposite Cocklemoor in Langport. When the river is low, this measuring station shows a smooth horizontal line which suggests the level sensor is probably above the current water level and so not showing the correct level.

I hope this site is of some use to you.

New club member Alexandru Eremencu had a spinning session at the Footbridge at Oath. After many missed bites he landed this good chub. Nice one Alex!

One of our lady anglers caught this very nice rudd on Cocklemoor.

Combe Lake

 

Please make sure you shut the gate securely in the otter fence when entering and leaving the lake.

 

If you are fishing Combe Lake, why not let me know what you caught; photos of your catch would also be appreciated. We'd love to know how it's fishing for our members. Email me.

Thursday 9th August

Fran fished the western arm of Combe Lake. It was a warm cloudy day with the odd sunny spell.

Fran raked a clear patch in the weed before setting up.

He set up with an 8 metre pole.

He first fed three balls of groundbait laced with hemp and caster.

 He fished maggot on the hook and regularly loosefed maggot.

He caught 49 fish consisting of roach and rudd and a 4" mirror carp for a total of 2lb 13oz.
