We have today had a weed boat on Willow lake at Woodend Farm. This lake is now at last free from weed. This action has been taken as part of the longer term strategy for managing the weed coverage on the lake that has been a struggle since we took the rights to fish the lakes.
A section of weed has been left in the middle of the lake so fish do have a natural refuge.
A work party for will be announced towards autumn time and it is our intention to cut back and remove a lot of the marginal growth on the lakes, this action will reduce the amount of natural decomposition of plant material and over time reduce a some of the conditions that have enabled the prolific weed growth to go unchecked since the lakes were first dug.
