Barlow Fly Fishing gone down hill ;(

Recommended Posts

ive been to barlow a few times fly fishing but over the last 2 month it really has gone down hill.. first few times fished this place had some real nice fish but about six weeks ago we went as we made our way to one of the lakes we so trout looking like it was dieing in the water and had some white mould on it, we fished that session had about 3 trout out and they was all covered in lice. we went back about 3 week back and all the fish we saw was all moldy. a chap we spoke to said there was nine anglers the day before that caught nothing... no fish were showing it was full with weed .. so we decided to leave it packed up and left.. this place was immaculate when we first went at the beginning of the season now its like no one bothers with it and the fish in really bad condition not to mention the grounds itself didt look like it had been looked after all overgrown.. its a real shame. going to toft newton next week hoping for a better day there ...

just thought id share we went up there 2 weeks back just for a look and they have drained 2 of the effected lakes and seem to be making it better.. the bailiff told us work should be finished and restocked within six weeks.
