40lb

There are 200+ carp to over 40lb with virtually all of the stock over 15lbs.

The fishery is very popular with those new to carp fishing and also experienced anglers who enjoy plenty of arm-aching action. The carp respond well to all methods, but the conventional tactics of legering hair-rigged boilies on two rods tends to pick up the lake’s larger specimens.

The lake has a very good reputation for winter fishing, with carp being caught on the coldest of days.
