Anchor Lake closed again on Saturday 14th July 2018 for more weeding

Thank you to all the people who helped out with the weeding of Anchor Lake last weekend.  We made a big dent in the unwanted underwater vegetation but more needs to be removed!

Please note that the fishery will be closed again on Saturday 14th July to enable this.  As reported last time, the good news is that the algae has not taken hold so once the weeding is completed the lakes will offer great sport.  An update will follow once the work has been completed and we apologise if the closure has caused any inconvenience.

If you would like to help out with the weeding on Saturday 14th July, we are meeting at 7am to begin, a pair of gloves, old clothing and/or waders are a good idea.  There is free fishing available for those who lend a hand.  Please see the Exe Valley Fishery Facebook Page for further updates and to register and interest please contact us through the comments area, private messages or call 01398 323008

Anchor Lake closed for weeding party on Sunday 8th July 2018

We apologise for any inconvenience but the lake will be closed for one day on Sunday 8th July 2018 for a party of anglers who are assisting with the clearance of weed from the fishery.

 The weed needs to be cleared ... but look ... at last ... no algae!  This picture was taken in late June 2018.

The good news is that we seem to be winning the battle against algae which is at its lowest level for over a decade, despite the very high temperatures experienced during the last few weeks.

Once the weed has been cleared please look out for an update and once again our apologies if you were planning to fish on Sunday 8th.  This maintenance is essential and will enable the lake to remain open throughout the summer month.

Finally, huge thanks to all those people who have offered to help us clear the weed, we very much appreciate the response and look forward to welcoming you on Sunday - "many hands make light work"

Please note that the event is fully subscribed but if you would like to be considered for the next one the deal is a days work on the fishery for two three fish permits, plus a BBQ & Beer.
