Sounds like that there are not many fish in the new lake, with little info on people catching any fish, bit if a concern
Jim wrote on 15th November 2018 at 2:50 pm:
I notice there are lots of questions about the new lake and the possible presence of an otter, but no answers so far. The reported lack of catches is rather concerning, so is anyone (particularly from the committee) able to clarify?

I am going to get up to Stanford lake this weekend with my deeper pro and have a good cast about to try to find out if there is a good stock of fish in the lake or not will post my findings when done

One swim at Stanford had dogs mess(large dog) this must have been brought by an angler as the swim was down 7 steep steps and this was on the grass 4 foot from water edge. are dogs are allowed? if so please clear up

I have only been to Stanford once so far, but I completely blanked, and despite lots of other anglers being there I wasn't aware of fish being caught around me either! Have others had the same experience, or should I keep just trying ? Has the presence of the otter been confirmed?

is there been any more sighting of the otter at Stanford lake as I was thinking of getting a winter ticket just to fish that lake
John wrote on 3rd November 2018 at 10:26 am:
Have fished Stanford twice now. Once for carp and once on the float and have blanked both times. Neither have I seen anyone else catch anything. Was not aware of the Otter but perhaps that explains it. As anyone fared better.

We would just like to remind all members to lock the gate at Beachborough after them. It has been found open several times recently.

any news on how the new lake is fishing

Hi, was just wondering how the new lake is fishing as have a free weekend
CPAS Secretary wrote on 19th October 2018 at 5:54 pm:
Hi All, just had clarification. The barbed hooks at Stanford are for Carp anglers, optional for everyone else. Rules will be amended ready for the new season next year.
Darren wrote on 12th October 2018 at 7:07 am:
Is anything going to be done about the otter up at Stanford lake if not there will be no fish left soon if it's not eaten most of them by now
barry wrote on 10th October 2018 at 4:40 pm:
Can somebody from the committee answer the question about barbed hooks on the stanford lake and the reasoning behind this?
Paul Hardy wrote on 7th October 2018 at 6:33 pm:
Had a bit of a surprise whilst fishing Stanford lake, spotted a resident otter about 3' long! Wondered why bites died off. 2 other members spotted it as well.

Hi, we're looking to stay with our caravan, next weekend near to Giggers Green Road bridge and wanted to know if it would be ok for my two boys aged 5 and 7 to use their light weight poles to do a little fishing? Please advise how we would pay etc.
Jim W wrote on 13th September 2018 at 4:46 pm:
I've just noticed the same think as John , is that correct that ONLY barbed hooks can be used at Stanford? Seems odd, as some of us object to barbed hooks and would prefer to have the choice...?
John allan wrote on 12th September 2018 at 7:10 pm:
Just received rules for Stanford lake why are barbed books to be used or is this just for carp fishing

A quick message for Paul Musson hi old son doing a bit of internetting about the flies at aldergate, they are Deer flies and their bites can be dangerous. Thought this might be of some good....cheers Chris Wilson 01303 211986

Hi, I am looking to fish Friday 20th July are there any issues with Aldersgate lane area for day fishing.
