News Update: 6th November 2023

With the winter fast approaching, more anglers are starting to change their attention to predator fishing. Clive Day decided to fish for pike at McGregor Lake where he landed thee pike in a short session with two weighing around 8lbs and a heavier one just over 10lbs.

Glenn Mills fished an overnight session at Gingerbread Lake when he caught two nice carp, a 29ln 12oz specimen and a smaller one weighing 17lb 10oz. Later in the week, Sam Hallybone fished an overnight session catching a cracking looking 34lb mirror carp.

Members are asked to note that Gingerbread Lake will be closed on 11th and 12th of November to a working party will be enable a working party to complete swim rebuilding operations. Also, anyone thinking of visiting the Sandy Lakes fishery must take account of the recent heavy rains with the risk of flooding and the ground becoming very soft for vehicles to travel over so, where possible, members should park on the gravel tracks and not the soft ground near swims.
