2019 has been yet another fantastic year of progression for the fishery with some notable highlights to mention. The year started with the netting of 5 of the 7 lakes of which helped us keep up to date with our stocks and assess the lakes moving forward. It really was wonderful to see our heavyweights come out in tip top condition and plenty of smaller fish coming along well. Moving on to May with special guest Julian Cundiff our ‘Family Fishing Fun Day’ saw footfall of over 1000 visitors across the day and not only [...]
Lake 6 Notice - The fish are (finally) spawning. Only a month late! Please respect the fish and leave them to it. Other lakes are still available, but please be mindful that other lakes could also start spawning at any time. We'll post updates as necessary. - Roy Young fishery manager
Thank you everyone who visited us yesterday at our Family Fishing Fun Day. The weather was kind to us and we hope you all enjoyed it. From our first ideas of having a fun day to encourage youngsters into the sport and help promote the work we have done down the lakes, to getting the help and support we needed from the Angling Trust, this event just grew and grew. The biggest thanks have to go to Trina Young (Roy’s sister and work colleague) for doing an amazing job pulling together all the detail and ordering everyone about [...]

As part of our stocking program, this autumn we decided that it was the right time to invest and improve our stocking in anticipation for a fantastic 2019 of fishing. Stocking saw us introduce 70 Carp from Thames Valley Aquatics into the stock lakes of which were a progeny of their original T1 fish! Of these 70 carp we introduced a mix of Sherwoods Carp Farm (Martin Moore's fish which loosely became known as Dinton Strain), Sherwoods x True Leney cross (artificial spawning), progeny of Broad Oak fish and Sherwoods x Simmo cross (natural spawning). Now all genetic lines mixed through natural [...]
Our Predator Lake, with Pike and Perch in had become too overgrown to fish. With Pike season now upon us, and a fallen tree making the only fishable swim unusable, we engaged Nash Contract Services Limited to clear around the lake, re-opening some of the old swims. There are now 6 areas to fish from. It's a snaggy water, but keep the fishing lines tight and you'll be sure to land a catch.
