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

The angling kicked off again in March for the 2018 fishing festival season for loads of match action on our 13 fantastic lakes….

We’ve been busy preparing for our 2018 season and there’s so much to tell you about.

From an extensive winter maintenance plan on the lakes to our revamped Tackle Shop, brand new accommodation and a fresh new menu in the restaurant – your White Acres experience will be better than ever. We’ve decided to bring the rules of our five main 180 angler festivals in line with each other so the Frenzee Festival is no longer a pellet-free match.

We’re looking at changing our bait limit and revising some of our other festival rules too so watch this space for more information. Plus there’ll be a new sponsor for some of our smaller festivals, which will ensure the prizes are even more exciting.

White Acres Fisheries Team 2018

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

As part of our pre-season maintenance we’ll be giving the lakes their usual haircut – trimming back any overhanging trees and brambles but we’ve also got lots more in progress to improve your fishing experience.

We’re investing into new pathways around the lakes to make them more accessible for you plus we’re replacing over 75 pegs and re-building 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 in 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’re making 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 2018 festival place – We look forward to seeing you!
