News Letter 2014 Round Up
One of the best seasons we’ve ever had, with 2 different 27lb+ fish, 69 over 20lb, 433 fish averaging 16lb per fish totalling 6,933lb+. It’s going the right way and can only get better.
The free pass for the biggest fish was a close run contest with Mark Carrick’s 27lb 4oz mirror from Peg 9, just beating Sam Alcock’s 27lb 1oz common from peg 17, well done to Mark.
The otter fence is taking shape, but unfortunately due to the expense of the fence, no new fish will be stocked this year. Priority is to protect what we’ve got.
During Jan/Feb cutting back and peg maintenance will be undertaken, so apologies now for any noise, it will be kept to a minimum, but it has to be done.
We would just like to thank all customers old and new for their continued support during and we wish you all the very best for 2015.
Newsletter 2014 till 31st March
Having just done the catch report and 20’s list till end of March it would be fair to say that most of these fish have been taken during March. Chod rigs having done most of the damage, but now as the weather warms up, zig rigs will also be worth trying.
As the new season begins and you walk around the lake you will notice a couple of changes, peg 15 has been removed and 24 are no longer in use this gives more water for anglers. All the paths have been coated with gravel and the pegs sharp sand. Please be aware that the sharp sand does tend to stick a bit when wet and you will need to put something under your reels ie. a towel or rag, it will stabilise as time goes on.
Also new for 2014 we have started a Forum on Facebook, you can get there by typing Rainbow Lake Forum in the search section and my face will appear and you are there then just click on join button, when joined you will find an array of tips and advice also up to date photo’s and general info. Please note that we do not allow 3rd party selling, swearing and keep to the subject of Rainbow Lake angling.
