Good to see you all last weekend

New post for this years results, stick them down below as before and we can also converse as to who is about.

Tomorrow I am working and next weekend, so whoever is down good luck. Depending on results I may pop in midweek but may not be necessary until we get some numbers up.

Let the Eel tickling begin...  lol!

Had a look today, there was a bullhead but no eels. Both siphons still running well, and flotsam caught up between the trap and the lid, which indicated it had overflowed at some point. I find it hard to believe, but I guess at night when the lock doesn't operate, levels could rise a bit. Any way still waiting for the first one, good luck all.

Going to pop down tomorrow as usual. I will grab some big cable ties and hopefully clean out the bottom chute as probably full of mussels. Hopefully more flow means more eels too. Or one maybe.

Nicola and I went to the trap this morning, and there was 1 eel at 95 mm. We also cleaned the bottom of the out flow channel there were a couple of hundred mussels and several handfuls of accumulated sand and gravel. All in all a successful morning, plenty of flow on the old river which is nice to see, quite fancied myself with a feeder rod sat in the sunshine having a few. Wont be long now.

Dave Nicola and myself had a look in the trap today. There were 21 eels. 2@80, 3@85, 1@90, 3@95, 7@100, 1@105, 1@120, 1@125, 1@135 and 1@140. We had to re start the big siphon as it had stopped other than that all was in good shape.

Had a phone call from an angling mate, who was net dipping with his kids in the tillingbourne at abinger hammer. They had an eel about 100 mm. This is a long way from the tidal limit of the Thames, I believe Joe mentioned elvers would be likely to travel 15 miles above. Said limit. They are very strange creatures.

Excellent, all ready go for the big eel rush now!
Big tides are happening this weekend, the Old Deer Park is flooded at Richmond, should check more frequently if possible.
May try to get down there this afternoon with Matthew and have another look.
