Read the visitors book and saw comments re crayfish, but they have definitely reduced as Paul has been netting the lake to take them out regularly. We fished with Fisheries Maple syrup boilies topped with plastic corn. Used my own bait I brought from home on one rod and had nothing on at all so swapped to three rods on Maple Syrup

First week of the season and very unsettled weather for majority of the week. I only had three takes. One I wasn;t touching due to the aggressive electrical storm, the 2nd Iost to a hook pull but I landed the third on the last night.
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
All bites came from hard spots where the silt meets the gravel. A lot of the fish seemed to be holed up in the weed at the end of the lake. As always Pauls advice and knowledge is amazing so listen to him. Will definitely be back.

Really hard weeks fishing. Temperature dropped massively as we arrived and fish went very quiet. Pressured water requiring slack lines and swim resting - also lots crays! Paul was really helpful with tactics and popped down every day which was great.. Paul said there are 60 carp in the lake - unfortunately we only saw 6 which was a shame. Paul and Susan are wonderful hosts and the food package was really good.

A very very hot week and so although we wanted carp, we caught mostly cats. Both of us had PB's. Paul allowed us to fish Lac Sans Nom for a few hours during the day to rest the swims.
What did you find were the best tactics/baits?
Wrap you baits to protect from Crayfish - Paul has been trapping them the last couple of weeks as they have been active in the hot weather. Use fisheries own bait!¬! They Work!¬! We didn't get a sniff until we switched.

The weather, though sunny, was bitter with an East wind and frost at night, this saw water temperatures drop dramatically, but we caught 1 cat and 6 beautifully conditioned carp from 27lb 8oz to 34lbs 1oz - including three PBs - and considering we are not carp anglers and the weather conditions we felt happy with that. We did not fish nights.
