News and catch report

Well what a season 2018 has been with not one but 2 60lb fish out. So our new lake record is a whopping 62.4lb.

Statistics show we had  567 carp out with 60% of those being over 30lb.

These are the numbers

2 x 60s, 57 x 50s, 153 x 40s 129 x 30s

Now that the fishing has stopped we have spent the rest of 2018 doing some much needed maintenence work including the removal of two large trees that had fallen into the lake, the replacing of the netting around the island to enable us to use it as a stock pond and hopefully grow on some of the smaller fish. We have also replaced the platform by extending the bank out into the lake making a bigger area with a slightly lower part for returning the fish. We have also extended out into the lake at the next swim along to give a bit more room for bivving up etc. The chalet has also undergone a facelift with interior floors being replaced and decorated throughout. We are hoping to do further improvements before the start of the 2019 season.

 

2019

 

2019 got off to a good start by replacing the  fabric gazebo on the platform swim with a sturdy wooden one, great for keeping out of the weather. We also improved some if the path ways around the lake 

and renewed the boardwalk down to the inlet.

2020

 

Well as everyone knows 2020 has been a trying time for everyone, with nobody able to travel in the first half of the year, we have got on with the jobs that had been put off for some time. The chalet has had new decking and been  painted, so is looking quite smart now. We have built a new gazebo on the cutout swim and cemented uprights for the gazebo on the dam. Lots of tidying of trees, hedges and bushes saw the lake looking it's best when the first anglers were able to get here.
