The Latest from the Lakes


Fishing Open - Sunday 21st February

Well, the weather was typical February: cold, windy and wet, said Terry Fishery Manager.

The miserable weather didn't put the fishermen off, or the Canadian Geese, who have started arriving at Windmill to graze in the fields around the lakes.

The Match Lake was already being used on Sunday for the Glenfall match, so our Sunday open was held on the Carp Lake.

In first place was Norman Ferris, Norman landed small carp with a bonus mirror weighing 8.14lb. His total weight was 13.4lb. Well done Norman, says Terry.

Shaun Townsend came second with 12.8lb, which was a weight made up of all small carp. Shaun fished with both maggot and soft pellet.

Third place went to Martin Rayet with 5.3lb of small carp.
