Fishery Management Report
The aquatic weed at Hurston Lane Fishery has continued to plague us well into the autumn and with the unseasonal mild weather is taking a long time to die back. Ross Denby our water warden has been doing a sterling job dragging out large quantities of weed, in particular from the Carp Pond. If you have visited Hurston Lane Fishery in the last month or so you will have seen the large piles of weed that are the results of his efforts. For those who haven’t been recently then the pictures below give you an idea of the amount of weed that has been removed.
Most of this work has been done by Ross together with his friend Scott Rayson and they have managed to spend a bit of time fishing at Hurston Lane as well. Below are a couple of fish that Ross or Scott have managed to bank when not clearing weed
You will perhaps notice by his attire that this picture was taken earlier in the year on one of the rare days when it was safe to take your shirt off. Dragging the weed out also stimulates fish movement and Ross managed to capture a couple of fish moving on the edge of the dredging below.
Hopefully we will see the weed die right back over the next month and the Fishery Management team have some plans that will hopefully exert some control on the weed for the seasons to come. Watch this space for more information.
