Work Party Lodden Lakes
Aim of the Work Party 24/25 March 2018:
To improve air flow and oxygen levels and to help combat weed problem.
A work party was held at Lodden Lakes on the weekend 24th - 25th, with the work carrying on through the following week. I would like to say big thank you to the following for all their hard work. Martin Colohan, Ken Murchie, John Collings, Dave Sealey, Pete Edwards, Sue Collings, Wayne Hunt, Jill Hunt, Mark Harper, Steve Harper, Ray Webster, Joe Searle, and Charlie Walters .
A lot of work has been carried out this year after the report done by A E Fisherie Consultants. We have been working through the recommendations that were made. Platforms have been removed where it has been possible as they were beginning to be a hazard, the ones that have been left have been repaired,the Norfolk Reeds around the lake have been pulled back to make this possible.
We have had a digger in for the last week carrying out the necessary work. A lot of tree work has been carried out around the lake which may look a bit bare at the moment but will soon grow back at a more manageable level.
This has been a lot of hard work. It is a shame that more of our members could not give up a little bit of their time to make it easier on the few that do help. A lot of us are getting older now and a lot of the jobs we have had to pay out to be done, which doesn’t come cheap. We pride ourselves on the fact that we have kept licences as low as possible over the years. But it is now becoming impossible to improve the Fisherie without more investment. Unfortunately I think it will not be possible to keep the membership costs at its present level in the coming season.
I hope you appreciate all the work that is being carried out for everyone’s benefit.
We will keep you all informed with future events as they happen.
Chairman 4 April 2018
The Club is currently working with A&E Fisherie Consultants to make some improvements at the Lakes. When the netting was done we moved some of the bream and roach from the small Lake into the main Lake. Then some of the small carp have been moved from the main lake into the small lake. This has been done for a reason one of them being the weed. I hope the members will respect what we are trying to do. NO FISH ARE TO BE TRANSFERRED FROM LAKE TO LAKE !! WHERE THE FISH ARE NOW IS WHERE THEY ARE TO STAY.
We have a similar problem at this venue where people are transferring fish from one lake to another. When this Fishery was created we wanted to have a small tench and pure crucian carp lake. Due to anglers transferring fish we now have fish all over the place. We are going to sort this out again in the future so as it is back to what it should be. Obviously this takes time and money again, we try to keep down the cost of the membership but it is difficult when people are working against us with little thought for others. If it continues I will be putting it forward to the committee that we will have no alternative but to ban keep nets.
I hope that you will cooperate so we will not have to take these drastic steps.
Thanks for your cooperation
