Nine Oaks Fishery News 1st November 2006

Here is the latest fishing report for Nineoaks Fishery near Aberaeron in
We have finally re-stocked our Trout Lake known as "Pallen" and topped up
on Derwen week commencing 22/10. We have stocked with Rainbows and Blues from
2lb and up to 4lb; Pallen now looks superb. Meanwhile we are continuing
re-planting the bottom of Weir lake with water plants as it fills up with all
the recent rains, we don't expect to re-stock this lake with Trout until
sometime in the New Year. This should give the water plants time to establish
and begin to have an improving impact on the Lake's ecology. It will also give
us time to verify that the remedial work on plugging a leaking "hole" in the
Lake's bank has also been successful.

Meanwhile Trout are now cruising just
below the surface with fry frequently jumping. Best time has been 1 hour before
sunset. Best recent bag has been 4 Trout for 9 1/2lb with the best individual a
3 1/2lb Rainbow from Pallen by young holidayer Harry Brooker from Brackley,

The best Coarse fish in recent weeks has been a 16lb Carp from the House
Pool and a 15 1/2lb Common caught by Jamie Field of Caerphilly on floating dog
biscuit in the Main Lake. Another good double has been a 14lb Common from Main
on Sausage meat by Lee Whitfield of Llanarth.

Bill Stafford of Aberaeron has
frequently had 24 or more carp in a morning session. His tactics have been to
use a 1" open ended plastic ledger tube filled with semi-dry carp enticer mix
and one soft hookable pellet on the hook. He fishes near (but not in) one of the
aerators in the Main Pool. One of our smallest Grass Carp was caught by Daniel
Pearson of Llangollen on floating chum mixer pellet at 4lbs. Meanwhile young
Stuart Hudst of New Quay caught a lovely 6 1/2lb Common just a few feet out from
the bank by carefully dropping a luncheon meat baited hook directly into its
mouth as he saw the fish rise for a floating bait.
