Fishery Management

Here at Stenhill Lakeside Holidays we pride ourselves on maintaining our own fish stocking and management. Most of our fish are micro-chipped so growth and catch rates can be monitored. If a fish is caught that does not have a micro-chip inserted, if convenient it can be placed into a holding area where it will be chipped.

We also have our own stock pond which is used to raise on future stockings with some beautiful looking mirror and common carp. These fish are raised on a diet that is both beneficial for good health, moderate growth rates and long living fish. The balance has taken time to get right, so the future of the lake at Stenhill Lakeside Holidays is looking extremely bright. We are not in the habit of just putting fish in when they reach a certain size in the stock pond, and a controlled stocking policy is adhered to so the water quality is kept at optimum levels to keep the biological balance perfect.

Brian maintains the fishery at a level which keeps the balance between nature and angler comfort. The grass around the lodge is mown regularly (when there are no residents, so you do not have to worry about noise or inconvienience) and any major debris that lands in the water is removed so the possiblity of snags is greatly reduced. If any rigs are reported to have been broken off in the trees, Brian will go out in the boat before check out time to remove them and return the items to you. Unlike some fisheries, we believe that your holiday should be a relaxing one, so unless you request Brian to come down to the complex, you will be left in the peace and tranquility of the surroundings.

Anglers are always interested in anything fishery related, so we have put together a few pictures below showing some of the future stock fish and of the micro-chipping process. Please click on any of the images to expand them to full size. Please allow time on slow connections for all the thumbnail pictures to load (there are a lot of them!!!)
