NO CHANGE TODAY:

We have now re-opened all of Brasenose-Two, St. Johns Pool and Hardwick/Smiths as they have now finished on these waters.
B-1 is still closed due to spawning (Best guess is that B-1 will re-open at some point over the weekend - it's doubtful it will re-open tomorrow).
We have checked the Guys Syndicate again and they are still spawning on Unity Lake (we have swims 1-5 closed on Unity Lake).
No signs on Yeomans or Gaunts but they can't be far away........

**High Water Levels** (Updated 11:30am)

The levels, although still high, seem to have peaked -
So as long as we don't get too much more rain we should be ok.

So far we have only had to close swims 23-33 on Oxlease and swims 20-24 on Brasenose-One as we don't feel they are now safe to fish. We are monitoring all the other lakes.

The whole site is very wet and muddy in areas, our apologies for this but it is something that is out of our hands at the moment. If you are coming down then please bring wellies.

We now don't think that it will come to the point where we have to close all the lakes but we will of course keep you up to speed if any other areas have to be shut.
