Test Catches

Before we opened we carried out three test catches, one after each stocking and one at Christmas. This was to make sure the fish are healthy and that they are putting on weight as it is of the upmost importance to us in producing a great fishing experience for you our customers. The results are below.

Test Catch 1

We carried out a test catch in September 2016, 8 months after the first stocking. We caught 5 fish and all fought really well, all in great condition, with the biggest weight gain of 5lb 10oz. This proved that the lake was healthy and the feeding programme was doing the job.

Test Catch 2

Our second test catch in April 2017 showed good weight gain again over the five fish caught, with one fish gaining 3lbs in two months. This gave us hope that there would be a good chance of a fifty in 2018 after another year of feeding.
