Wow its been a hot one! The heatwave conditions were not ideal, but our lakes have managed well with Centre Lake fishing great, carp up to 20lb+ have been hitting the banks. Some anglers catching 10 fish in a session! Small baits like boilies and pellets are proving to be a hit. Catfish are still feeding with the best being 57lb this season!! Plenty of fish in the 10lb-30lb range being caught on luncheon meat and boilies. Bream fishing has been exceptional, also with them coming in up to 6lb. The prospect for pike fishing is looking good.
What a wet start to the year! The weather has certainly not been on the angler’s side although the brave few braving the weather have had a few good results. The weather is finally starting to feel like spring and the lakes are certainly changing with lots of movement!
Lodge Lake is fishing very well this spring, carp reaching 37lb 5oz have been hitting the banks, as well as 7lb 1 Golden Orfe!! We’ve seen some super Tench too! Unfortunately, we have found fish tethered to the lily hoops with barbed hooks. DO NOT fish too close to the hoops.
What a year it has been so far, we started off in the spring with a filming crew on Lodge Lake for the series “The big fish off” which will air in the spring of 2018. The catfish season has been great fun with the challenge being getting the fish on the bank, but with perseverance we have seen some beauties!
Earlier this year, Lodge Lake was filmed for the new series of The Big Fish Off which will be aired in the Spring of 2018! Here is a picture of Tony Bellew and Ali Hamidi with a tench caught later that day!
As pike season comes to an end and they start to spawn, the catfish start to wake! The water has certainly taken a new lease of life with movement of fish! This pike season has been one of the most successful years, some great looking fish at some brilliant weights which has been really rewarding to see. We are looking forward to seeing them again next season!
Pike season is certainly in full swing with cracking double figure fish coming out consistently in Centre Lake. Carp and Bream are still feeding but they have quietened off a little in the last couple of weeks!
Anglers have been avoiding Paddock Lake which is a fatal error as the fish in this lake are still feeding and with the big carp cruising around it would be silly not to give this lake a few hours out of your day!
As of 1st January 2017 we will be making a change to our rules on baits! In the new year we will allow Pellet and Hemp for a years trial and review at the end of the year to confirm if we will continue to allow these baits!
Please note this change does NOT start until January 2017 and there is no excuse to start using the baits now!
Any questions please feel free to ask!
Guinea Lake is fishing extremely well, after a quiet winter this lake has certainly picked up. Great sized Tench and plenty of Crucians are being caught thick and fast. Anglers are starting to find this hidden gem and the lake is becoming a favourite for many!
The catfish in Centre Lake are starting to become more active and over the last week a couple of double figure cats have been caught. The Pike have now started to spawn with the odd one still taking the bait (naughty out of season pike)! Just this week an 18lb Carp came out too which was in great condition. The lake is buzzing with activity and it feels like spring is in the air!
From the 1st May, Dorking Angling will be taking Stammerham's waters on! This will run along side our matches for 2016 and as of May 2017 Dorking Andling will have sole use!! We are excited to announce this news and would like to encourage any anglers still wanting to fish these lakes to contact S.C.Fuller for more info!
