AKAC Match Report – Walters Lake, 14-Apr-2013 in Matches section
We have installed crayfish pots into Thamesmead A in an effort to control the little critters. This is all being done in house with the kind permission of Nick Freeth. Please could you make sure you don’t tamper with any of the pots please so we can be as efficient as possible. Thanks

Dates for events on Large lake have arrived. Waterlands hold several big triathlons over the course of the year and they tend to be extremely busy. On Sunday the 9th of June there is a womens only triathlon Which starts at 0800. On Sunday the 16th of June there is a major triathlon with all groups and ages. This will be a very busy event and will start at 0600. This has been unfortunately arranged by Waterlands on the opening day of the season for Cokes Pit so i ask anyone going to fish to be patient when parking. The Car Park will be free as Waterlands will have staff directing participants for the race into the camping field from the road and have asked for patience. We ask you to be patient too please. Once fishing on Cokes there should be no problems as there is no event traffic round the lake.
On the 7th of July Waterlands has a big swim which begins at 0700. Please be aware that there will be swimmers in the water that day in numbers.
On Sunday 11th of August there is the Cotswold Classic event which is again a very large event. Starting at 0600. There will be lots of people registering and as a result it will be busy. Waterlands will have staff directing traffic for parking using the gate directly into the camping field. They have asked for patience from their participants and we ask you to do the same please. Once again there should be no parking problems for anglers.
Sunday the 8th of September there is a Sprint triathlon starting at 0755. There will once again be no issues with the parking as Waterlands are having parking in the camping field. Please be patient on the day during the race. This event will be short finishing around 10ish.
Here is Lee Barter with one of the stock fish we put into Thamesmead B in January of 2012. This fish along with another two were captured this spring and in excellent condition with a superb 5lb weight gain. These V S Fisheries supplied fish are doing very well in their new home and look to have settled in well. The fish Lee is holding was 9lbs plus and in the bottom picture can be seen on the day we stocked it at around 4lbs. We look forward to seeing some more captures of these fish in the coming years. There were also several of the Cokes Pit fish Captured last season but unfortunately no photos were forthcoming although those fish are doing equally as well.
