News Update: 11th April 2021

In 2016, the club introduced some 60 carp into Gingerbread Lake. The fish were supplied by VS Fisheries and averaged around 10lbs each. Board members have been monitoring their growth over the years and have been impressed with the increases in size of fish caught. Phoenix Miller caught a lovely looking mirror carp which was recognised as being one of those stocked fish and the fish weighed an impressive 30lb 8oz, another milestone reached.

At the Sandy complex, club locks have been installed on all access gates to further enhance security on the site. Please note though that the gates situated at the river end of Swan Lake and next to the bridge leading to Grace Lake at McGregor Lake are for estate management use only.

Bailiff Trevor Richardson completed a recent session on McGregor Lake by catching a super looking 23lb 10oz mirror carp whilst Robert Livock’s sole visit to the lake during the week produced a 15lb 8oz mirror carp for him. Other anglers fishing around the lake were picking up the odd carp or two on most days.

Swan Lake has continued to produce some good carp with several of the known fish being caught by lake regulars.
