Just take a look at what some of the UK’s top anglers have to say about White Acres!

Great News! Many of our 2019 festivals are now available to book. Call the Fisheries Team on 01726 862 519 today to secure your place.

From events specifically for young anglers to matches for the seasoned professional and a range of top brand sponsors, there’s something for everyone.

We’ve expanded the Fisheries Team for 2018 to help keep our fishery running smoothly. We now have someone totally dedicated to lake maintenance. Their role will be to keep on top of tree trimming, peg and path repairs and anything else that may need replacing throughout the year to make sure your fishing experience is both a safe and enjoyable one. We also have a new fisheries warden. Their duties will be to assist in lake maintenance, maintain lake health and safety reporting and permit checking late into the evenings. Plus they’ll be out and about on the lakes for general assistance.

White Acres Fisheries Team 2018

Hard at work! The White Acres Fisheries Team preparing for the 2018 season…

Our winter work ran smoothly and the lakes are all fishing well. Check out a few highlights from what’s been going on to ensure your fishing experience is the best.

Pats Pool
1,000lb of bream and skimmers plus 200lb of small roach have been nettted and removed. The lillies have been cut back and removed, the trees have been cut back and all islands have been strimmed.

Jenny’s
Jenny’s has received new pegs plus the pathways round the lakes have been improved. Over 2,000 fish have gone into Jenny’s from our stock ponds. These range from 1lb all the way up to 8lb.

Pollawyn
Some fantastic new sturdy pegs added on Pollawyn. Pollawyn has also seen 1,700 Ghost F1’s added.

Trelawney
Ditches fully cleared out plus 500lb of fish added.

We’ve invested in new pathways around the lakes to make them more accessible for you plus we’ve replaced over 75 pegs and re-built most of the pegs on Jennys and Pollawyn high bank to ensure that they are both safe and enjoyable to fish.

We’ll be continuing to carry out annual netting on the lakes. This helps to assist oxygen circulation and reduce algae, which improves water quality. We’ve introduced thousands of new fish into the lakes. Our first fish stocking took place last November with 1,700 Ghost F1’s into Pollawyn and around 1,000 into Jenny’s lake – plus more to come. To help us to do this we’re working to fully utilise all four of the lakes in our fish farm. This will enable us to be self-sufficient in our fish breeding and re-stocking programmes.

Last but not least in 2018 we’ve made a positive change for the health of the lakes. In order to improve our water quality we have decided to follow the lead of many other fisheries around the country and stop the use of meat on our lakes. A tin of luncheon meat contains over three ounces of fat therefore this change will improve the welfare of the fish and will also help to reduce the greasy residue that collects on the surface after our match days and festivals.

So don’t delay give Lisa at White Acres Reception a ring on 01726 862100 to book your 2019 festival place – We look forward to seeing you!
