Multiple Carp from Gingerbread

February 19th, 2018 • By: Alan Davies News

The milder weather at the weekend found the carp at Gingerbread on the feed and Sean Pashley took full advantage catching 4 carp of 26lb, 25lb, 21lb and 19lb.

Elsewhere catch reports have been very thin on the ground.

Reminder that next Saturday, McGregor Lake will be closed for work to be carried out in the lake

Carp for McGregor

February 4th, 2018 • By: Alan Davies News

During the last week, a consignment of around 100 carp were delivered by Sport & Leisure Fisheries and stocked into McGregor Lake. The fish weighed between 3-8lbs and included many fully-scaled mirrors, linears, scattered scaled fish and a few commons and will give a boost to the fishing in this lake.

Carp in Gingerbread were on the feed in the recent mild weather, with a number coming out to those on the lake, the largest being a 30.02 Mirror to Craig Jones.

A member fishing for pike at Swan Lake had a surprise catch when his herring deadbait was taken by a 21lb carp. He later returned to the water and caught a 15lb carp but this time on boilies

Tempsford Saw Mill Trial . The EA have advised that over several days the gate will be incrementally lifted. It will then remain open for a year and the impacts on water levels, river users, ecology and the flow of the river will be monitored. The club are asking for members to advise the board of any effects that this has on the fishing upstream at Higher Romper and downstream at Church End and Ouse Farm. This information shall be passed to the EA and will help make an informed decision about the future of Tempsford Saw Mill Sluice.

New Fish For Swan Lake

January 28th, 2018 • By: Alan Davies News

The club are please to announce that Swan Lake received a stocking of 15 stunning mirror carp, averaging 10lb each, the fish were supplied by VS Fisheries and included classic strains such as Harrow, Sutton and Leney.

Once again the club have to report that gates within the otter fencing are being left open by some inconsiderate anglers, leading to the potential for otters to get onto the waters and destroy the stock. Any angler seen or reported to the committee as leaving the gates open runs the risk of losing their ticket permanently.

With the recent wet weather, the tracks at Sandy have become very soft, therefore anglers should ensure that they do not take their cars beyond the hard standing until the tracks have dried out.

OTTER PETITION

January 22nd, 2018 • By: Alan Davies News

A government petition calling for the control of the otter has been launched this morning

It is for the control, and hence research of the otter. It has NOTHING to do with the word ‘cull’. Read the wording. Therefore, every angler can sign this petition with a clear conscience!

Since its assisted re-introduction to the freshwater waterways of the UK, the otter has reached levels of increased population on lakes, canals and rivers where its presence has become a detriment to the riverine environment affecting most fish species and birds and mammals

Evidence shows with some certain fish species, their populations have been reduced dramatically to the point of collapse, the rivers Kennet, Great Ouse, Teme, Bristol Avon, Cherwell, Dorset Stour and Thames are good examples of the otters effect on the local environment of these rivers. Many commercial fisheries and fish farms are regularly invaded by the otter with the negative effect of costly indiscriminate fish kills, many fisheries are now ring fenced to keep this predator at bay

Chub Make A Change

January 21st, 2018 • By: Alan Davies News

In the recent cold conditions, Robert Livock decided to try for chub on the River Ivel at Sandy. He adopted a roving approach fishing swims for up to an hour before moving on if he got no bites. He fished with ledgered bread flake and went on to catch chub weighing 5lb 3oz, 4lb 2oz and 3lb 14oz.

The bridge across to the island at McGregor Lake has a hole in one of the planks, so anglers are advised to take care when crossing it to avoid having an accident
