We've been very lucky this Winter, as despite the very bad weather we have not been badly hit.
As we are situated on a hill we did not suffer from flooding apart from a few platforms under water. We've got some great video of the cascades of water through the park which can be viewed here on Facebook.
With just a few trees down, the fisheries team have been out and about clearing pathways from the storm debris, repairing pegs and ensuring that the Lakes and fish are all in optimum condition for the coming season.
On the pleasure lakes we have replaced 40 pegs and every peg will have a non slip surface before our opening day. You can keep up with how the team are getting on with the updates by checking out our facebook page.
We've got a new addition to our team this year, Lorna. She will be handling all your enquires at the fishing lodge, so if you need any help or information about upcoming matches and events give her a call on 01726 862526
Our first Match is the Bait Tech Festival on March 24th - a great one to kick off the season with especially for those of you who prefer the more traditional style of fishing - all conventional baits ie. no pellets, paste or method feeder!
Match action from the 2013 Bait Tech. If you'd like to fish this years match give Lorna a call on 01726 862526
Our National Fishing Month is 18th July - 25th August 2014, and we've got some of the biggest names in angling on hand to share their secrets and help you improve your coarse fishing skills with lots of freebies including demos by leading anglers, live Q&A sessions, tips on how to choose and approach your peg, specialist tuition for adults and juniors, expert product advice and free prize giveaways!
It's always a great opportunity to learn some new skills and get a few tips from some brilliant sponsored anglers. It’s a really fun week for anglers to take some time for pure pleasure fishing, so why not book an hour when you collect your permit from the fishing lodge?
After receiving our letter from CEFAS telling us that the five years of testing for KHV is clear we wasted no time in introducing some new fish stocks.
All the fish we have stocked have come from our very own fish farm / stock ponds reducing the chance of spreading any further viruses into our fishery; they have never seen a hook before so get ready to bag up! We will still be keeping our dry net policy and the net dips will still be in place!
This is our new stocking to date, but we are only half way through so there is plenty more to come!
|Sycamore Lake||470||Carp||3lb to 8lb.|
|Pollawyn Lake||70||Carp||4lb to 10lb|
|Pollawyn Lake||80||Barbel||Quality 3lb|
|Trelawney||150||Carp||4lb to 10lb|
|Pats Pool||20||carp||14lb to 23lb.|
|Twin oaks||75||Carp||4lb to 10lb.|
|Python Lake||Lots!||Skimmers||Quality 2000lb|
So get out your diaries and make a date to visit us this season. The Fisheries Team are looking forward to seeing the park spring to life again with regulars and some new faces!
Finally, we still have some spaces available on the forthcoming festivals, the Bait tech, Dynamite Bait, Junior and Intermediate and Ladies Solero. Don't forget for more information about all our up-coming festivals you can call Lorna on 01726 862526.
Hopefully we will see you soon, so until then enjoy your fishing wherever you may be.
