Not many anglers turned out for the pike match held on Rowley Lake, and only one fish was caught by Trevor Moffatt to take the spoils.

Around 60 anglers from the North West took part in a two-day fishing match, held on Boddington Reservoir near Birmingham over the weekend.

Some of the top rods were present for this two-day event, and victory went to local Burnley angler Sam Chew with a 250lb net of fish.

The Pendle Burnley and District Committee would like to make it known to all members that, contrary to rumours going around, no netting of fish will take place on Lowerhouse Lodge.

What fish are in this water will stay in this water.

The following fish will be stocked into Rowley Lake - 500 tench 6” to 10”.

Also 500 Bream 6” to 10”.

The same amount of fish will also go into Walverden Reservoir. These fish will be ready at the end of October.
