Oscar Taylor and his Dad Steve have been on their second visit to Cherry Lakes this week. Oscar who is the Cherry Springs lake record holder with the 26-08 PB Carp caught last year, wanted to try another lake this time, so Steve booked them into our new Pochard Lodge on Cherry Mere. To date they have landed 13 Carp between 19-08 and 10lb and lost 5 good ones. Most of these seem to have …

We had a near miss on Cherry Mere on Friday, when we came very close to losing all of our fish stock. A fishery owners nightmare. Why? As some of you may remember we had a series of thunderstorms and low pressure go over us on Thursday night. Under certain atmospheric conditions, most normally (but by no means regularly) associated with thunderstorms, conditions are such that oxygen is in practical terms ‘sucked out of the …

Andrew Hartley who fished this week in Grebe Lodge leads the way with this latest update. Andrew fished in Grebe Lodge and managed two Carp during his mid-week stay including the male Leather Carp at 33-04 caught from underneath ‘Dave’s tree’ in the rain.

I always enjoy seeing Father and Son fishing together, not least because I was unable to instill the same passion for fishing in my own son. This week things went even better when we had three generations of the Bentley family, notably Grandfather, Father and Son, fishing together. Nice! Paul Bentley (Father), a returning guest, led the way fishing on his own in Heron Lodge. Paul managed 5 Carp to 24lb including this lovely Ghost …

Mike Booth said he had a magic holiday when he stayed in Grebe Lodge for a week. Unlike last time when Mike blanked, he really got amongst the Cherry lake Carp this time when he landed 13 Carp to 28-04. He beat his PB at least 4 times last week (he had 4 twenties including the 25-08 Common below). Mike has unsurprisingly re-booked the same week for next year. I have copied Mike’s opening line …

Cherry Lake certainly sprung back into some form this weekend with all anglers landing Carp with a number also lost at the net. Simon Fox and his son Billy, who I have nick-named ‘Billy the Kid’ as he looks so young, fished together in the Cottage swim, whilst his two Sisters and his Mum watched DVD’s when not in the hot-tub. Simon landed three Carp including the biggest of the weekend, a 29-06 Mirror. Unfortunately …

A slow week across all the lakes this week which has got me scratching my head a little! I can only put it down to the sharp drop in temperatures this week, particularly Monday and Tuesday and overnight since then. The temperature on Cherry Lake was only 63F which is about 7F down on last week. Indeed Cherry Lake was ‘steaming’ when I walked around at 05.30 this morning. ‘Steaming’ is itself a sign of …

Cherry Lake almost always does well in low pressure and rain, particularly if we have some good anglers fishing at the time, and so it proved to be the case again this weekend. Unusually all three Cherry Lake Lodges were booked by a group of friends, the excuse being Paul Shakespeare’s birthday. Paul fished in Grebe Lodge and enjoyed landing several Carp including a 26-00 and a 21-00 Ghostie. Very nice birthday presents indeed! Paul’s …
