Catch Reports

18th August 2009

Mike Dibble fished the River Adur below White Bridge on the evening of the 15th August. Using feeder fished banded pellets it was a bite a chuck from the Skimmers & Mike managed about a dozen to nearly 3lb plus a decent Roach. The session would have been even better if two bigger Bream had stayed on the hook & not spooked the shoal. Mike reports that other hook baits were not nearly as effective.

11th August 2009

Steve and Verity Ludlow fished their favourite swim on Deep Pond at Goose Green on the 11th August, fishing the waggler with pellet Steve caught a steady succession of Roach, Rudd, Tench, Skimmers & Gudgeon, Steve reports that at one pointy he was plagued by the Gudgeon and one Gudgeon bite sailed off into the deeper water, and after a bit of a struggle, it turned out to be a small Common Carp of around 2-0-0, shortly after another bite resulted in one of the infamous flying Bream of around 1-8-0.

4th August 2009

Steve and Verity Ludlow made a return visit to Deep Lake at Goose Green on the 4th August, after briefly contemplating trying floating baits for the carp moving on the surface the pair decided to target the many small Tench & Crucians in the lake, fishing the waggler to the marginal lilies, Steve caught Gudgeon, Rudd, Roach, Crucians and Tench on corn and strawberry pellets.  Later in the session with pellet on the hook, Steve hooked into and landed a 1-8-0 Mirror Carp, followed immediately by another that might have been a bit weightier as it managed to break Steve's 2lb10oz hook length.

Andrew Eggleden sends the following report re his trips to Goose Green with his two young sons:
I have just joined Pulborough A S with a family membership and thought I would let you know of our success. I introduced my 2 sons Jake (11) and Ben (7) to fishing for the first time last month and on our first visit fished Heron without a single bite !
The following week we fished Canada with a mixed bag of small fish. The boys were thrilled they actually caught something this time !
We have just returned from fishing Deep lake today with a bag containing Gudgeon, Roach, Bream, Tench, Skimmers, Perch, Chub ( 1lb 6) and 2 Common Carp ( 3lb and 5 lb). The boys were absolutely delighted and I now seem to have two new fishing companions to help me get back into the sport I had long forgotten about.

Thanks for helping introduce my sons to fishing by providing such a well maintained fishery at Goose Green.

Catch Report

Goose Green

Adam Tester fished peg 7 on Heron Lake at Goose Green on the 17th Feb, Adam fishing bread punch reports catching a bag of Roach, but the day was topped off by a 3-0-0 Common Carp.

Craig Burgess fished Canada lake at Goose Green on the 18th February, Craig started off using bread & sweetcorn fished on the bottom but missed the only bite he had. He then tried some floating crust towards the margins, after a few minutes Craig was into a 4lb Common carp which came in easily, Craig then lost another carp which slipped the hook straight away, not to be outdone by the fish Craig persevered with floating crust and was rewarded with a 7lb common which put up a real struggle.

Moor Farm


Duncans Pond

Reece Woodhams fished Duncan's Pond on the 17th February, Recce fishing with hair rigged corn reports the capture of a 13-0-0 Common carp on a bolt rig.

River Arun

No reports

River Adur

Mark Dibble fished the River Adur below White Bridge on the 15th February. Mark reports the river as still fining down after the flooding last week, but his speculative session did produce a fish. Using groundbait feeder fished pellet, the third cast saw the tip drop back gently in a way he didn't even recognise as a bite. A couple of minutes later Mark picked up the rod to reel in & found what he thought to be a good Skimmer hanging on the end. The Skimmer turned out to be a perfectly lip hooked & very lethargic 3lb Mirror Carp! After that it went quiet.
