Duncton Mill

Postby badger040 » Sun Mar 16, 2014 7:29 pm

hi all
just got back from a cracking day at Duncton Mill trout fishery in search of the elusive Tiger trout
didn't get one today but you will see from the picture
the sky was blue without a cloud in sight
the fishery has four lakes all fed by crystal clear spring waters
they have a good stock of Blue,Rainbow,Brown and Tiger Trout
the Tiger Trout,i have found out is no longer available for stocking in the UK,unless you know different...
the places where Martin,the overseer at Duncton Mill,used to get his eggs from has got diseased waters and so the few he has left in his stock pond will sadly be the last chance for me to try and catch one
he is replacing this fish with Arctic Char which he has been rearing for the last couple of seasons from 80,000 eggs
they are due to be stocked from this coming October
the fish below was my only one today
but what a beauty and gave a good account of itself
weighing in at 6lb 8oz
hope your all in good health
best regards

Hi Barry,
An excellent catch. The biggest rainbow I caught was only 20 inches. Yours made mine look like a minnow. Excellent job and hope you get your tiger. Roger (rwwalleye)

Beautiful 'Bow, Barry! You'll get that Tiger, just keep at em and don't give up. First Tiger Trout I ever caught got me by complete surprise, though it really shouldn't have since I had been fishing an area that had lots of Browns and Brookies. Was almost inevitable there would be a few Tigers. ;-)
