accommodate up to 50 anglers and consequently is a popular venue for the

during the week.

good head of carp reaching 15lbs. There is also a good stock of chub to
4lbs, crucians to 1lb and skimmers and perch. Pole, tip and waggler can
all produce good results from this lake fishing the usual mix of
sweetcorn, luncheon meat, pellets, maggots and worm.

tench during summer months and the island pegs are good to catch in open
water at 16m. The margins around the lake work well and catches are
regularly taken under your feet.
