A channel has now been excavated in the lake to make the landing stage by the Car Park more accessible for boats.
The lake is being stocked twice before the Fur and Feather competition on Sunday 18th December, so fishing should be good.
At the moment, the usual flies are catching well, Damsel / Cat's Whisker / Montana. Ken Holroyd of Tenbury Wells landed an 8 lb Rainbow on a Damsel, fishing from the Bank, but this month most fish landed were in the 2 – 4 lb range.
The main part of lake has remained fishable through November in spite of the recent icy conditions.
