Website Updates & Posts

With so much going on throughout the past year it would seem that updating the website has slipped down the priority list, no more! We are back and bigger than ever with a very strong online presence.

Please join our Facebook Group to get involved with our very active Facebook community

COVID-19

We are now open and we are working to our best ability to comply with Social Distancing rules as set out by the Government.

You can join our active Facebook community group: Elton Carp & Catfish Lakes, for updates on any temporary changes to the rules to work in accordance with social distancing, good hygiene and ensuring that we can all enjoy our sport without risking each others health.

Some changes include:

– Customers must use their own toilet roll, disinfectant wipes and hand wipes

– All rubbish must now be taken home. Bins will no longer be provided for public use

– 2m rule to be adhered to at all times with those outside of your household

The day the Cats came

We are happy to finally receive our first batch of WELS Catfish after what feels like a very long year of preparations.

We have been working in partnership with The Catfish Conservation Group and have secured our Cats from Homersfield, the most prolific WELS Catfish supplier in the UK.

Here is looking forward to many seasons of Catfishing fun!

Temporary closure

The Fishery has been closed on a temporary basis until the 5th November. This is due to improvements and introduction of Wels Catfish.

 

The exception will be an informal Open Match on the 3rd November lasting 24 hours

A visit from Bait Tech in January 2018: from their Facebook page –

“Darren Attwood opened his 2018 account with two carp in his latest session!”

“The venue of choice was Elton Carp lakes just outside of Gloucester towards the Forest of Dean . The horse shoe shaped lake with an island running down the middle was stocked around 2005 and the carp have come on nicely with a large head around the 20lb mark. As I was limited on time I was looking for quick bites so I decided to use Bait-Tech’s Tutti Fruity sweetcorn on the hair with a bag of mixed maggots soaked in Corn Liquid” .

“Fishing a couple of feet off the island it didnt take long before my bobbin come out of its winter hibernation and 2018 was kick started with a stunning mirror weighing in a whisker over 18lb! Shortly after the same tactic tripped up another stunning mirror weighing in at 17lb. With these cold misty mornings Super Sweetcorn range does the business and to really increase my chance of a bite Liquid Corn is a must have to boost those free offerings!”
