News - October 2016
When Reading Civil Service visited Whitehouse on October 16th, Ian Marcham put 23lb on the scales, ahead of Dave Sexton on 19lb 8oz and M Biles on 13lb 10oz.
Prospect's match at Whitehouse on October 9th proved to be a good close match, and considering that 16 fished, it performed pretty well. First was Dave Green with 41lb, followed by Roy Beales on 39lb 8oz, Joe Darby on 33lb and Richard Arkell on 30lb.
Two weeks earlier Prospect visited Old Barlows where the weights were lower, this time Joe Darby came out on top with 27lb, with Sue Arkell second on 17lb and Dave Green third on 12lb.
The weights across the lakes have improved since the fish stockings in March and April:
- Whitehouse receiving around 300lb of skimmers and bream, plus 74lb of tench in the 1lb to 2lb bracket.
- Soke Road receiving 268lb of carp between 1lb and 3lb.
Back in November last year there was also some significant restocking of the lakes. 300 crucians between four and six inches went into the new canal at Barlows, and 120lb of quality bream to 5lb were put in New Barlows. Around 450lb of quality bream also went into Whitehouse lake, with many in the six to seven pound bracket. Soke Road also received some fish, in this case 168 small F1s and 100 chub of between six and eight inches.
