The Coypu were a bit of a problem on peg one diving down on the baited areas at night and biting through rigs. Apart from that the lake, food package and the fishing was superb.

General comments:
As discussed with Philippe the removal of the trees on the far bank has dispersed the fish around the lake. Fish can still be caught on the hard spots on the far bank, but not in the same numbers as last year. Planting of some fast growing trees, such as willows and silver birches, along the far bank would return the natural cover for the carp and hopefully improve the catch results.

General comments:
To be honest in my opinion the fishery is totally run down and looks nothing like the pictures i seen and videos i watched on U Tube, the only swim on the lake thats safe to fish on the Carps point of view is swim 1, swim 2 which i fished was a right off due all the rotten cut branches in the water were the Carp jumped on a regular basis, the problem being every single tree had been cut down on the opposite bank and clearly the branches had been cut and fell in the water before the trees were chopped down, causing me to loose most of the fish i hooked so instead of landing a Carp i landed a branch or was snapped off, over and above that the complete fishery is in a sad state due to the lack of trees and shade for the fish, all in all very disappointed with my fishing trip to La Fonte.

*Angling Lines note* We have spoken to the customer about this feedback and fully appreciate his opinion. We discussed the branches with owner Philippe who has now spent more time to remove branches from the far side of the lake as well as a big trunk in the water along the side of swim 2.

All PB's Broken

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Very hot days, water temp was 28oc by end of the week, had to work for them, spots had moved from last year, only caught late evening/early morning.
Various Rigs, bottom bait, wafters, popups all worked.
Caught off light and heavily baited areas.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes great, also the shower upgraded from last year is a great improvement.
Were you happy with them?
Yes, clean and adequate for a week away fishing.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
As an overall yes, very rural area, good facilities. Average size of fish is very good, but far from easy. Food Package and Hospitality from Joanne is excellent.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes, Angling Lines have been excellent the past 2 years and can’t fault the service at all, highly recommended. The lake has visually changed dramatically and maybe arriving customers could have been made aware of this a lot sooner.

General comments:
We had a great week, all PB's broken. As returning anglers to La Fonte we couldn’t wait to return. We had heard about the extensive tree work from anglers that arrived in March. We fish for carp not trees, but can’t deny that this has affected the holding areas for the fish. There is also an unfishable channel past peg 3 in which a lot of the stock hold up in, we recommended last year that this could be blocked off but still remains open. I will return when the lake has grown back it’s maturity.
