With the rivers sea­son now fad­ing into mem­ory, many of our fish­eries con­tain a few of a favourite run­ning-wa­ter species, and they have thrived. One place in par­tic­u­lar has had a strong chub pop­u­la­tion that seems to en­joy a bit of the still stuff, and they are known for their tip-top con­di­tion and hard-fight­ing abil­i­ties, so I popped along to have a butch­ers.

VENUE: Stone­bridge Lakes, near Scru­ton, in North York­shire is a well-es­tab­lished fish­ery with more fish than you can shake a rod at.

Bait and bits and bobs are avail­able on site. See www.stone­bridge fish­ WEATHER: spring may be here this week but hadn’t quite ar­rived on this day, as a howl­ing east­erly made fish­ing a lit­tle un­com­fort­able. Tem­per­a­ture 7 de­grees (feels like 4). Wind 18-25 mph.

Air pres­sure 989 mbar.
