The Lake

Enjoy our three acre spring fed lake

The lake is approx 3 acres in size and was dug over forty years ago, having only been used for the benefit of the owner for pleasure fishing.

It was previously surrounded by poplar trees which resulted in approximately one metre of silt to buid up. Since acquiring the property we have completely drained and desilted the lake. It was also made twice as deep as originally constructed with depths varying between 3 to 11ft.

The bottom varies with soft mud, hard bottom, the odd patch of silt and gravel patches. There is also an island that is made up of trees, the roots of which are embedded in the lake itself and has now been fenced off. The lake is spring fed and water quality is very good with lots of natural food.

Since completion of this, the lake has been stocked with 100 mirror and common carp between 18lbs-30lbs and 4 carp between 40lb-46lb. The lake also contains pike to 24lb, black bass and roach. The fish have been fed on a high protein pellet and boillies which are available to purchase from the owners.

New stock has been added including a 52lb mirror, 34lb mirror, 24lb, 26lb and 27lb common carp.

There are no crayfish or poisson chat in the lake.
No permits needed and night fishing is allowed.
The lake was netted on 23rd October 2012 and over 200kg of small carp, 120kg of roach and 10kg of this year’s fry were taken out. These were replaced with 10 carp between 20-25lb and more will added later.
