Water Level Update
Just a quick update on the lake - the spit is currently underwater and recent weather saw the water levels rise at the beginning of this month as predicted.
There is still plenty of space to bivvy up around the lake but please be aware that the levels may rise/fall quickly so best to bivvy up a little further from the edge than you would ordinarily for the next couple of weeks.
An Update on Water Levels
Right now the lake is thawing, the water level is low and the peninsula is still visible. However it is raining quite a lot and so we predict that the water levels will continue to rise.
This may mean that it is not possible to fish off the peninsula as it will be under water later this month and in March. There is however plenty of space around the rest of the lake to bivvy up.
Feedback 20th-24th August
The guys left early last week due to a family emergency at home but from Saturday - Wednesday they had had 11 fish (good sizes) and a 70lb cat. Essential cell wafters were doing the trick over a bed of pellet and maize.
Ben Austin has been having a great week at Beaurepaire, topped so far by this 52lb mirror.
'If carlsberg made carp I think it would look somethink like this!! This must have been the hardest fighting fish in my life 30 mins I was attached to this lump was a massive relief when it when over the draw cord!! She went 52.4 on the scales!
What a beast!!
All caught using the matrix pop ups over a bed of matrix freebies! Can't beat a bit of fish meal threw the summer months!'

A New Venue Video
We spent a week at Beaurepaire this July to capture a new venue video. The lake pulled out all the stops, culminating in a 51lb'er!
The carp at Beaurepaire have been spawning on and off for the last couple of weeks, but Sophie has said that they appear to have finished after a period of 3 days this week where they were spawning heavily.

Pardon the pun but we are so pleased to see Beaurepaire bouncing back after a virus. After last weeks catches we were eager to see what this week of fishing would bring.
Due to a late cancellation only one angler went to the lake this week and he sadly had to make an early return today being recalled home due to a serious family illness. However, he has kindly reported his catch for the 3 days fished, which was already 17 carp to 45lb, 5 grass carp to 33lb & several catfish to 80lb!
He admits also to losing a few fish and found it necessary to alter his rigs to get the carp. He said the carp were fighting well and showing in both bays, so all things considered, they are back on the munch now.
This is great news not only for the anglers but for Bernard the owner too, a gentle man who loves his carp and was devastated to have let anglers down during the convalescence of the lake.
