Work is underway at Spring Rock Fishery enlarging the lake and deepening the shallower part to the right of the entrance to give a minimum depth of one and a half metres.
Part of the enlargement will include the creation of another small island to give an additional feature to this interesting water.
The diggers are also buys laying mains water to the site as well as creating six touring caravan pitches, each with their own electric hook up, a new access road inside the fishery and creating a car park which will be able to accommodate up to eight vehicles comfortably.
When work is complete the existing entrance will be closed off.
The fishery and sleeping pods are open as usual whilst work is being carried out.
|To be found in stunningly beautiful and remote surroundings just off the A44 near Llandrindod Wells, Spring Rock Fishery is a clay bottomed carp fishery built by carp anglers which is suitable for both devotees and pleasure anglers alike. Indeed, if you are looking for an attractive water in the middle of the countryside, Spring Rock will fit the bill.
Stocked with more than 350 mirror, common, ghost and koi carp to 25lb as well as a good head of crucians, the lake is about two and a half acres in size with three central islands and depths which range from a few feet in parts of the margins to about 10 feet further out.
Because depths vary so much and because there are plenty of underwater features such as plateaux and holes, it is advisable to spend a little time before fishing to plumb depths and find the features. Also, with margins which vary between a few feet and eight feet in places, some of which are lined with high reeds, the water is also ideal for stalking.
Although there are few rules there is a limit of two rods per angler and only barbless or micro-barb hooks can be used. The only baits to be banned are trout pellets, tiger nuts and halibut pellets. All anglers should use an unhooking mat and all fish should be returned to the water after weighing or photographing.
Because Spring Rock is so remote there are few facilities for anglers with the exception of a spacious new log pod, a car park and on-site toilets. This means that anglers looking for a stay of several days or nights should go well equipped with everything they need.
A new feature at the fishery is a log pod, pictured left, which is equipped with electric points and a flat screen television and DVD player.
Measuring 10 feet wide by 25 feet long, the pod can be rented at £20.00 per night and is ideal for overnight accommodation as there is plenty of room for camp beds, fishing tackle and other items.
Because there are only some 15 pegs and fishing is limited to six anglers at any one time, advance booking is essential.
