Lake Chira back on track

Carpworld - - TOPCATS -

Over on Gran Ca­naria things are look­ing very good at the main carp fish­ing venue on the is­land, Lake Chira. Much of the talk over re­cent months has been about how low the wa­ter was and peo­ple fear­ing that it might dry up com­pletely. Well that could never hap­pen any­way but, the great news is that af­ter weeks of rain and stormy con­di­tions, the lake is now full once again. It may seem hard to be­lieve that things can turn around so quickly but it was Dave Beecham, of Carp Gran Ca­naria, who pre­dicted it would hap­pen. He said: “I’ve seen ex­actly the same thing hap­pen be­fore where the wa­ter lev­els have been low but, be­cause ev­ery­where around the lake is solid rock, as soon as we get heavy rain it all runs in to the lake and it rises lit­er­ally me­ters in just hours. Now that the lake is full it has been fish­ing re­ally well with ev­ery­one catch­ing and if pre­vi­ous years are any­thing to go by we will see the weights in­creas­ing rapidly over the next few months.”
