A "gang" effort301 viewsSo, we dropped the level of water in the lake and removed most of the Coarse fish. Since then, a leak in one bank has been plugged and many water plants have been planted. The lake has been "rested" to give the juvenile plants the opportunity to root.

352 viewsAs you can see the lake was devoid of any bankside plants and had heavily discoloured water due to algae. We now hope to restore the lakes ecology and return the lake back into a Trout lake before Christmas 2006.
