Fishery News - Goose Green

We are pleased to announce that Deep Lake at Goose Green will be open to anglers as of the 19th January 2008, work still remains to be done on and around the lake and we ask for your patience whilst it is completed, our thanks go out to the members who have worked on the lake and made it possible to open it a full, two and half months ahead of schedule.

Saturday the 26th January will see a large consignment (300+) of trees that need planting around Deep Lake and the surrounding area, if you can help with planting, and we will need some help, as we intend to plant the entire consignment in one day, then please contact Chairman Bob or Mark Emery, to let them know you will be able to assist, the more people we have to assist the sooner we can get the job completed, please wear suitable footwear and if possible bring a small spade, as we have limited tools available on site.

There has been some confusion in identifying the new ponds created between the main road and the Tench pond at Goose Green, It has therefore been decided by the committee to rename them as follows

Lake 2 / Bottom Lake, will now be called Heron Lake
Lake 3 / Middle Lake, will now be called Canada Lake
Lake 4 / Top Lake, will now be called Kingfisher Lake
These are all names reflecting birds associated with water that have been seen at Goose Green, the names of the other three lakes at the fishery Tench, New & Deep Lake remain unchanged. To help establish these names and to confirm the existing names of the other three lakes (Tench, New and Deep), purpose made name boards will be erected by the side of each lake showing it's name
