Stocking January 2017

Kicking off the New year by stocking some fantastic Rainbow trout in all three lakes. Thornwood has been frozen over almost completely the last few days, so ice breaking was in order before we could get these stunning fish into the very cold water.

Looking forward to the ice receding and some serious sport on the stalking pond with a few new ‘big surprises’ lurking in lakes one and two also.

Thankfully the frozen ground made it possible to get the fish tanks right up to each lake. Specimens were netted and counted into lake 2 and the stalking pond. Smaller fish stocking into lake 1 through the usual yellow chute to speed things up. Of course one fish managed to get itself up and onto the ice but was swiftly rescued. Seriously can’t wait to fish for these they will be superb. Photography: Chris K Jones
