I have just returned from the lakes having introduced another 90 odd carp between 20-25lbs into each lake. We have done this for a few years now and think the stocks are about where we want them. Numerous enough to be busy fishing but not so many that they can’t find enough food to grow!
Following the long, very hot summer this year, and despite heavy rain this autumn, both lakes are still fifteen inches from full. Judging by the number of calls from teams fishing elsewhere that had been cancelled due to low water levels, I guess this was a widespread issue this year. My local fish farming chum at Chalet Lake tells me that when the temperature is 35 celcius, as it was for quite long periods this year, and there is any sort of a breeze, you can watch the water levels fall by 1-2cm per day. Hopefully next season will be cooler!
