*Update 11th April*
The top pond has now reopened. The only area now closed is the freshly repaired bank on the middle pond where the ground floor s still drying.
Folks, following today’s work party we are happy to announce the partial re-opening of the middle lake at Wedgehill. The works bank will remain closed but the rest of the lake is now open. Water levels are currently about a foot down on the maximum but continue to rise. Whilst the track to the top car park is also now open the top lake will remain closed until we have repaired the bund which has leaked for many years. The water level on the top lake will also need to be raised before we re-open it as water from here was used to replenish the middle lake.
In total we moved 17 bigger (12-15lb) carp from middle to top lake and 17 smaller carp from top to middle. In addition, around 600lb of roach and skimmers were placed into the bottom lake from the other two. Larger perch and roach were left as they were to provide good fishing for several species in all three. Platform building work continues on the closed bank of the middle lake.
Good catches are already being reported on the bottom lake. Thank you for your patience throughout the work, we are sure it will be well worth the inconvenience once completed.
