Half Price GDAA now availiable. (does not apply to Lodden Lakes)
Still fantastic fishing at Whitepost and Two Counties.
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

The first stage of the planned maintenance and review of fish stocks has taken place by netting the two lakes.
A full report of the fish stock will appear here when received . However the initial findings are that the fish stocks are in very good condition (better in small lake which is assumed to be because keepnets are used less frequently)
In the large lake there are plenty of Big Pike 20lb plus and shoals of quality Bream, Tench and Roach. Roach have been seen to over 2lb with many 1lb plus!!
With a superb head of Big Carp in both lakes plenty of high doubles and some 20lb plus in the small lake. Over 60 large Carp were counted in the small lake.
The team carrying out the survey were impressed with the quality and quantity of the fish in our lakes. With further works to be carried out on the reedbeds and shrubs please continue to respect the banks and lakes and follow the rules of the fishery. Please go to images for pictures of the netting with some Big Carp, Roach and Pike.
