News Update: 1st May 2022

A big thankyou to the persons who turned at up at Swan Lake to participate in last weekend’s working party. They worked tirelessly over two days to create or refurbish over a dozen swims around the lake to a very high standard. Each swim is now clearly numbered, and members should only fish from these numbered swims and not from between them. The working party group have identified much work that still needs to be done on all our waters including river sections so more dates will be arranged to tackle these tasks.

Despite the cool conditions that existed throughout the week, carp continued to be active at Swan Lake and were now coming out during daytime hours. A member on the working party caught two cracking mirrors (a just reward) and Jamie Boness had a 15lb common carp. Stewart Howes caught a 28lb common carp during a short after work visit and was unlucky to lose another big fish on a previous visit. A member visited the lake on two occasions casting his baits towards carp he had spotted topping on the surface out in the lake. On each occasion, the tactic worked as he caught mirror carp weighing 24lb 10oz and another just under 20lbs.

McGregor Lake has been producing some nice fish too with lake regular Troy Fletcher catching, at least, two upper double figured mirror carp using 12mm boilies fished ‘snowman’ style. Another regular visitor to the lake, Lloyd Gadsby caught a lovely looking mirror carp bang on the 20lb mark.
