Spawning

**Spawning Update** 8:30am

The weather has cooled down and the spawning seems to have stopped on B-1, Oxlease and Gaunts, but not sure about Manor, Smiths and Yeomans - still a bit of cloudy water around on these three.

If we spot nothing more by midday, we'll be looking at re-opening B-1 and Oxlease in the next 24-hours and hopefully opening the remaining waters on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Looking at the weather forecast for the weekend, it's going to be very warm so we may see further spawning commencing - we'll continue monitoring all the lakes, and close any lakes as we see fit.

Thanks for your patience and understanding over the Bank Holiday Weekend, not a great time to shut the lakes, but it had to be done!

And just a reminder to anyone planning to come up over the next few weeks - we will be resting ALL of the day ticket lakes for two week,s from the 16th of June until the first week in July, so this will also give the fish a nice break...........
