Signage improved at Whitehouse Farm

Following feedback from members that Whitehouse Farm was difficult to locate two new signs have been put up.


Thank you Greg.

Little Park boosted by small Commons from Howells

We had a good day over Howells, the figures are a total of 462lb of small Commons moved to Little Park.  49 Commons totalling 442lb went into Little Parks main lake mostly averaging 10lb, some slightly smaller, and 20lb of small Commons went into the top pond.


Four of the 49 Commons moved from Howells to Little Park main lake.

Mudwatch

I have been reminded (after a new member got stuck in the mud at New Hall) to resurrect this Mudwatch post:

Extreme caution (6) (unless you own a 4WD vehicle):

Brick Kiln Pond – the car park is churned up.  We will forgive you for parking outside the gate under these circumstances.
Little Park 1 & 2 – the track is good but in regular use by farm vehicles.  There is now a new key padlock on the white gates.  The grass car park can get very slippery.
New Hall – the access track is good but please do not drive beyond the water works entrance as the car park is extremely muddy and you will probably get stuck.
Slough House West – the car park in the farm yard is churned up and treacherous.
Whitehouse Farm – re-opened 1st Feb – Water level very high.  Pages Lane is firm but pot-holed (work in progress to repair).  The side track is muddy but the car park is OK if you can get that far.  Please do not try and drive beyond the car park as this is all churned up:

The banks at Whitehouse Farm are now slippery as well following extensive works to clear the undergrowth around the lake:

Good/Fair (11):

Beckingham Hall – fine if you park just inside the gate on the right but increasingly iffy the further up the slope you go.
Bog Grove – the track has now been repaired and the car park resurfaced so as long as you keep off the grassy bits all will be OK.  Bark chippings have been applied to some of the paths and swims but please proceed to your swim with extra caution as the sloping banks are made of clay and can be very slippery underfoot.
Heron Hall – firm track and car park but fairly tight for turning round.  The small layby opposite the gate is flooded again.
Little London – the access is firm but uphill, the car park has been resurfaced.  Turning round can be a bit tight.
Howells – the track is firm although the car park can get a bit churned up due to regular use.
Railway Pond – parking on the tarmac spur road.  Water level high.
River Blackwater (Station Road) – the entrance to the car park has been improved with hardcore and the car park is much firmer than it looks.  Under no circumstances park outside of the car park and especially not in front of the entrance to the horses field!
Rook Hall 1,2 & 3 – re-opened 1st Feb – solid car park just inside the gate on the right.  Please do not drive on the grass.  Water levels high.
Slough House Farm – the car park is sound but there is a large puddle just outside the gate.  Please do not drive up the side of the car park.  The padlock has been changed to a combination lock to hopefully make it easier to get in and out.
Totham Pit – well established hard standing, no problems here.

Bog Grove closed on Friday 11th March

The car park and track at Bog Grove have now been resurfaced/repaired.

Howells closed on Sunday 13th March

Howells will be closed to members on Sunday 13th March so that a number of the small Commons up to 10lb in weight that have bred in this lake can be moved to Little Park.  There will also be some disruption at Little Park throughout the day when the fish are introduced into their new home.  This date coincides with the Carpin On show at Five Lakes so hopefully disruption to our members fishing time has been minimised.


Howells lake – removing the smaller carp hopefully means that the big ones will get even bigger.

Concessionary match on Tue 8th Mar moved to Little London

The 8th March concessionary match has been moved from the canal at Tesco’s to Little London Reservoir so we can catch.

A recent bag of roach caught from Little London.
