I think with the trout lake, they saw the fish kill as a positive on both the ecology and the weights of fish. 10+ years ago several fish a night was a serious possibility. If you blanked then you left scratching your head. Plus you could cast at showing fish knowing that you were sitting on gravel. Since the fish kill(s), they must have lost at least 75% of the stock, which has resulted in one or two scraper thirties being joined by another half a dozen up to mid thirties.

100% agree with AideyKaye.

Used to be great lakes Trout and Big lake but it has been downhill for the lat 10 years. Do not understand why they have been so neglected. Stunning fish in Big Lake, beautiful commons going to over 40lbs. Trout lake had lovely commons going to over 30lbs. It just needed a little investment to keep it on track. The weed is outrageous on big lake and Trout never recovered since the fish kill about 8 years ago. Fingers crossed MVF do invest money into these lakes and bring them back to their former glory.

Lack of secure parking and loads of road noise rock hard and weedy but there was some lovely fish in there what's left is anyone's guess.

Loads of tickets available, and there always will be from now on. In my opinion, it's in desperate need of some investment for the future. Neither the Trout or Big lake have had any form of (legal) stocking in decades, yet the Ford lake which is underfished received a dose of C4's about 10 years ago? They're all old fish, and both lakes are losing fish every year. It would not surprise me if there were less than 50 fish each in both lakes now. I've been an on/off member for 20 years, and it's gone from 50 quid to 250 for less fish, more weed, some type one and bark chippings.

I admire the work that MVF have done in the area, but I think a bit of investment for the future is required down Leybourne.
