Report Last Farm 2011 Sue Babich The feed back over the last year from the other clubs is that the farm has been in a good condition and the fishing excellent depending on the time of the year. The banks kept clean, wildlife/bird life all reported and in general a super fishing/relaxing venue. There has been the odd complaint about dirty toilets and rubbish left in the old farmhouse, these problems where soon sorted out, there was a couple incidents of damage to property such as driving through the fence or cutting the locks off and these incidences where reported to the relevant club who dealt with their member accordingly and compensated RPA. There was also reports that people fishing for the day or weekend at Rosslee using the toilets at Last Farm, this is something that will have to be watch carefully by the RPA rangers although personally I would not want to spend a week fishing at Rosslee with out the right facilities especially for Mums and young kids. The main concern from the other clubs is the assess road during the summer months a number of clubs Jan and Feb 2011 could not get up the road and had to cancel at great expense for some of their members re petrol etc. I have mentioned this before to the committee that the road should be fixed during the winter months particularly the where the road meets the Milk Hut Road and would like to propose that this suggestion is taken seriously both Mike Kirby and I have discussed it many times. The other area of interest and possible concern is over the last year having received regular reports back from the other clubs as to their members catches and species caught that there has been an explosion of yellow fish both large and small mouth in the Last Farm Bay particularly during 2011. Due to the no points system the RPA adopted over 10 years ago this species has not been recorded not even on a catch and release bases in the data sheets. I would suggest that the Conservation Officer for the RPA looks into this phenomenon - is it a certain number of years cycle or something else happening in the Bay?
