Roping of Filham Lake will take place on 10th October 2020

The Filham Lake will be roped off during the winter months to avoid predation. Although it is roped off to prevent Cormorants landing, the roping is done to allow continued fishing with minor restrictions and causes no harm to the resident waterbirds.

The council have put a notice by the entrance to the park to this effect.

Roping of Filham and Weedy Lakes

Both Filham and Weedy Lakes have now been roped for the winter, though Filham can still be fished and booked in the normal way. The roping has been done to avoid predation and protect our fish from cormornts.
