Andy’s plan is to rear fish down in the slightly warmer south and stock his best few fish into the fishery every year. These will be the best from a batch of over 100,000 fish. This will make an incredible stock of fish for the future.Many Fully Scaled, Zip Linear, Double Linear, Leathers and some cracking Commons have been stocked making for a different scale pattern on every capture.The fish were stocked over the winter of 2010/11 and have been fed 4 tonnes of Carp pellet over the year.
Early trials have reported good growth rates of the fish.Ladywood Lakes impressive stocking as at 2015 stands on top weight with over 40-20′s, 5-30′s & the jewel in the crown Lady Kamara at an impressive 41lb !The lake has depths down to 22ft as well as bars, gullies and weed beds. The lake has two main bodies of water and a wide channel linking the two, the Back Bay is slightly shallower.
There has been a track made around the lake.To allow anglers the ability to drop of there tackle close to there chosen swim and then drive to the nearest car park
An extensive planting programme has been undertaken with 2000 Blackthorn planted around the perimeter to keep out the unwanted. Over 75 Lilies have also been planted to encourage the fish into the margins. Norfolk Reed, Yellow Flag Iris and Sedges have also been added to the marginal shelf. Many trees including Willows, Alder, Oaks and Birch have planted around the lake to bring the old pit to life.We have erected at great cost an ‘Otter fence’ to keep these predators at bay.
PLEASE MAKE SURE GATES ARE CLOSED AT ALL TIMES OR THEY WILL GET IN!!
