Stocking Programme

Roan Fishery has had an extensive stocking programme.

With our original stocking levels matches and day ticket fishing was very slow and after our second stocking things didn’t improve drastically with mainly only the F1 carp being caught however after the third stocking introducing over 2200lb f1 Carp and 1000lb of Bream the lake has really took off with a match record of 188lb 8oz and we are regularly getting match results over the 80lb mark, we even getting results of over 60lb over the colder months with most anglers having a good catch.
