Firstly a correction to the information regarding the closure of Gingerbread Lake, this will now take place Friday 28th – Monday 31st and not the previous week as originally informed.

Reports of fish caught have been quiet of lately, but Anthony Pogmore and Robert Livock had a productive week on McGregor Lake, catching several large carp upto 15lb 4oz, with Anthony catching 5 double figure carp, all of which fell to ‘The Element’ by Denham Baits. Alan Gentle also targeted the carp in McGregor and landed a superb carp of 20lb 10oz

The club has been informed that the grass is due to be cut around McGregor Lake in the next week, but this shouldn’t have any effect on access to the lake

Jim Shelley targeted The Drift behind Gingerbread Lake for the river carp and after landing several sizeable bream, was finally rewarded with a 19lb mirror. In the past, the river has produced many specimen fish including carp to 30lb plus as well as large Chub and Roach, but in recent years has been largely ignored

The club are always keen to hear from catches by members and any catch information should be sent to for it to be included it the weekly report
