Both the Frome & the Cerne are up and coloured. There is no major rain forecast, but it is still doubtful if it will be even fishable by tomorrow….
15:15 Update – just looked over Whitfield Hatches and the mayfly are pouring off, shame the river is still very coloured and the fish can’t see them!
19:30 Update – you can see at least 2 feet into the river and by morning it will be even better, so hopes are high for some good mayfly fishing tomorrow
The Club is a private one, founded in 1877, of approximately sixty-four members and six Town Rod subscribers. The Club’s waters consist of about 12 miles of wild brown trout & grayling fishing in the main River Frome, River Cerne and River Piddle, together with attendant carriers and side streams. The waters extend both above and below the town of Dorchester and the Club employs a part-time keeper.
If you see any fishing, netting or trapping you think is illegal, please don’t tackle it yourself.
