Today, we stocked 200 very good-looking rainbow trout in Darlow. The lake now contains between 300-400 trout ready for the new season, starting on 01-Mar-2022. We have more fish to follow!
The good news is that Darlow has, so far, avoided any unwelcome influxes of flood water, and we hope that to continue; the bypass stream is very low, so doesn’t look like it will breach any time soon, and, whilst the river is high, it is staying safely within it’s banks.
We have also been undertaking lots of work around the lake supported by Sunday work parties; tree felling, scrub clearing as well as dozens of barley straw “sausages” to help prevent algal blooms between swims.
