News » March Update
More fish were added to the ponds in early March and the ponds are very well stocked at the moment. Also the weed has started to die down with the cooler evenings so is less of a nuisance when catching a fish. That said it is still easier and more effective to fish with a float and bait rather than some form of spinner or soft bait. There is a nice fish , 5lb plus, in the small pond. :)
Remember that the ponds close for public/parent assisted fishing from the 30th of March to the 30th of May to enable maintenance, some fishout days, and events for special needs children.
There were 100 plus fish added to the children’s ponds in February , mainly about 1.3 kilos or heavier, so there is good fishing at the moment. With the warm weather there has been a lot of weed growth which makes fishing challenging. If the kids hook a fish that runs into weed tell them to keep steady pressure on the rod/fish and given a few minutes the fish is likely to find its way out of the weed.
We will undertake weed removal in late March to have it most of the weeds removed for the winter and for some fishout days in April/May.
