Mike Pitt, UHTFC secretary reports that the “Rivers in May UHTC festival” which was held on 1st and 2nd May went off very well with plenty of fish taken including some of size in the 48cm class. As has been the case for most of the year the upper beats were the better as the lower sections were a bit discoloured. Shaun Dickson will be holding his river clinic on the weekend of 15/16 May and then the river closes for fishing at the end of May until spring. The dams remain open throughout winter.

With regard to the club dams some of the waters are very discoloured as the water turns over which is an annual event in early winter. Normally these dams clear again in a couple of weeks.
