Ridgway Lakes

SATURDAY’S open at Ridgway Lakes was fantastic, with lots of very high weights and a tight result.

The carp have started spawning on a grand scale (as of Monday am), so for the next two weeks keep nets will not be able to be used by day ticket anglers.

We would also remind day ticket anglers that fish have to be released from nets after six hours. You can now fish for up to 15 hours a day which requires two releases per day.

Day tickets are available everyday from 7am from the Waterside Café.

Saturday Open – May 17 – Total 22 fished

1, Mark Baston – 278lb; 2, Ryan Shipp – 240lb; 3, Frank Donachie – 238lb.

John Morgan – 105lb on Red; Larry Laing – 140lb on Green.

1, Vince Shipp – 167lb 2oz on White 16; 2, Mark Ogbourne – 156lb 8oz on Blue 19; 3, Paul Ogbourne – 118lb on White 17.

Section wins

Richard Bailey – 110lb 8oz on Blue; Alan Smith – 86lb on White.
