As regular visitors to the site will know, Kingfisher Lake is closed for the 2019 season. We are progressing with plans for the dam wall renovation and work should start in September 2019 and last for about 3 weeks. We are still waiting for confirmation from the contractor, but we are hoping that the work will be complete by early October. This will allow us to refill the lake and re-stock late in 2019, so we are fully ready to re-open the lake in 2020.

We have decided to only take one booking per week in 2020 to ensure that, if there are any unforeseen delays with Kingfisher, no customers will be affected and we are almost certain now that all our 2020 visitors will have two lakes to fish as part of their package.

For 2021, we are likely to revert back to our norm of taking bookings for the barn and Heron Lake and cottage and Kingfisher Lake.

What a week it was for first time visitors Steve, Tom Charlie and Isaac. The guys were here to give it everything they had and quickly established the norm of fishing 24 x 7 whilst at Puyravaud.

The first night proved eventful with a number of fish including good PB’s for Tom and Charlie of 57lb+ and 58lb+. The fish kept coming all week and by Thursday all 4 had enjoyed a number of PB’s and multiple catches.

The highlight of the week was Steve beating his PB of 56lb+ with one of our biggest mirrors weighing in at 60lb 8ozs. Steve was over the moon with his best but also his first 60lb+fish.

All in all, the guys weighed in with an incredible 91 fish for a total weight of 3317.4lbs, a new venue weight record and an average weight of 36.45lbs. They landed 1 x 60, 8 x 50’s and 22 x 40’s among the total!

Needless to say the guys are keen to return, but I have warned them, that was a weeks fishing of a lifetime!

Dave is a regular visitor to Puyravaud and this May saw his 8th visit along with his normal crew of Scott, Stuart and Wayne.Despite the number of visits, Dave had not managed to join the Puyravaud 50’s Club and was for ever hopeful that this visit would break the magic mark.The week started well and a number of good fish were banked including a 43lb 8oz grass carp for his first PB of the week. Stuart also hooked a nice 40lb 20z grassie for a GC PB.

Dave then hooked into a nice fish of 51lb 12ozs to finally break his 50’s duck and notch his second PB of the week. The following day this was bettered with a monster of 58lbs 14ozs for his third PB of the week and a new Heron Lake record. Scott also got into the PB act with a first PB of 55lb 12ozs, followed quickly by another lovely fish of 58lb.

All told 32 fish and 10 fish over 40lb. Not a bad weeks fishing for the lads and they will be back in May 2020 to try and improve yet again!

Well done guys.
