Just a quick update as to what has been happening at Les Quis during the winter. Firstly, we have put in a drainage system that has enabled us to drop the levels of all four lakes by 18 inches. After the last four years of wet winters and even wetter spring times, the levels have gradually crept up making some of the swims tricky to fish due to water encroaching up the bank. Hopefully excess water is now a thing of the past!
Secondly, we have just had a delivery of new fish. This consisted of 95 fish between 10 and 15 kilos, all real beauties of around four to five years old that have never seen a hook before. These will no doubt provide some good sport during the coming season. There will be a second stocking of approximately 120 fish in early March. These will be slightly larger fish with an average size of 12 to 16 kilos. So we are expecting great things this season – with the fish stocks already high we do not expect any blanking!
We have thinned out some of the trees around the Elf Lake. This is to allow more wind to hit the lake to improve water movement as it had become too sheltered and shady. This improvement will encourage the fish to move around the lake more due to the increased wind on the water.
