Work has just started to repair a rather large hole that appeared in the dam wall on Heron Lake during the summer. The work will require a section of the wall to be dug out, a completely new monk and sluice gate system to be put in and the whole wall strengthened. We were advised to take down the rather large oak trees that lined the back of the dam wall to prevent further damage, it has now opened it up a lot but sad to see the trees down.

A lot of heavy work going on so that have the lake fully back up and running hopefully by the end of October. As they say, when you own a fishery, the work never stops…………………….

Watch out for more details as the work progresses.
