Thursday 11th September 2014 –
The water is heating back up again !!! back up to 20 degrees Celsius surface temperature and 17.8 degrees five foot under !!! The weather forecast predicts temperature of 21 – 23 degrees over the next few days and next week . I have cancelled delivery of fish for next week , hopefully the following week – week beginning Monday 22nd September – we will start re stocking.–MEANWHILE please note the no additional charge for caught fish( see below)
We have approximately 100 rainbow trout in each lake – these have been in since June, there has been one or two summer fatalities – but it does seem that the remaining ones are in quite good condition.
Summertime Tickets £10
For £10 you can have UNLIMITED TIME, should you tempt a trout out there will be NO ADDITIOINAL CHARGE – I will be pleased to get as many summer survivors out before I put the new boys in. Please let me know your tally by completing your returns ticket- always keen to keep an eye on remaining stock levels !! I f you don’t want to take the trout home – please leave by Clubhouse door – my dogs love them !
The weed has been conquered thanks to DyoFix – the inert vegetable dye. I have spent the summer experimenting and now , Blanket weed, Algae bloom ( that pea soup effect) and Spiked Water Milifoil are HISTORY !!!!! If you really want to find a little Milfoil whack a sinking line on and let it go right down , you will find a little dying at the roots !!– I am so looking forward to putting some fresh trout in there
We are open for summer ‘Fly Fishing’ – however please be aware that your chances of catching a trout are slim - When the water heats up in the summer, the trout struggle, some literature suggest that they stop feeding at 19 degrees Celsius . As the temperatures
the water is unable to hold onto the oxygen, the trout do one of two things; some will go almost into a state of hibernation, others will become stressed, you may see them on the surface swimming aimlessly. This is the warm water summer phase of our
During this quiet time the Clubhouse isl generally unmanned -– the back door will be open throughout the day for access to toilet, Please use the ENVELOPES to sign in and pay for your ticket. The envelopes are in a plastic container on one of the tables on the decking area. Please complete and post in post box.
Autumn is knocking on the door !!!
Our little jewel in Worcestershire offers the Fly Fisher a peacefull and tranqil venue. Conservation plays a crucial role; benefits include increasing the entomology of the lakes, hence encouraging and establishing flourishing flora and fauna which inturn attract a diverse and fascinating range of birds and mammals.
