Well after last weeks escapades the fish started spawning again on the Sunday after the last group left, this carried on a little on Monday and there are still groups of fish milling around together, and swimming in lines down in Peg 5. Have they finished is anyone's guess, but there will be a big hit for someone soon once they decide to start feeding again.
It has been very stormy this week so far, with temps approaching 30oc and feeling very muggy indeed. Another storm is forcast for tomorrow so hopefully this might spark the fish into feeding.
One thing I have noticed this season is the abundance of Damselfly present around the lakes, I have not seen this many for a few seasons now which indicates the high number of Larvae that are present in the lakes, providing the carp with a larder of natural food. The Larvae will continue to emerge from the lake bed then hatch into the adult Damselfly over the summer months. Also there is an absolute mass of roach fry present in the lakes too this season, and it seems due to the water table pushing so much water this year, that everything has bred in numbers!!!!
