Hello All,

does anyone know which of our waters have thawed out yet and are fishable?

cheers

Bragging may not bring happiness, but no man having caught a large fish goes home through an alley.

only the rivers will be ok to fish. It will be a week or so with +1 temps to defrost. Abbotts lake is still froze as of yesterday apart from wherev ducks are.

I hope the ABAC’s fish have faired better than my Koi Carp. :(
I’ve had them ten years, in which time they've grown from fingerlings to 6 lb beauties, :D but despite clearing a patch of ice each day they’ve not survived this last cold spell. :cry: :cry:
I'd rather be fishing!

Sorry to hear about your koi carp Geoff, i dont think yours will be the only casualties tbh. I hope our venues will be ok, i think if anywhere will suffer most it will be the commercials stuffed with fish. I was told that silty lakes suffer aswell with lids on, as the debris on the bottom breaks down into silt you get a build up of gasses that cant escape , not good for fish. I hear that some places are now ice free so fingers crossed we can get out soon, lets hope the fish have pulled through. Cyprio.
