The Res has 24 designated swims on 24 acres of water. The depth of water does vary throughout the year but generally, the deepest points are approx. 14-16 feet with a clay-based bottom. The carp get caught on all tactics, bottom baits, pop-ups, Zigs and surface at short, medium and long-ranges all depending on conditions, swims, weed beds and the time of year.
The lake has been carefully stocked with over 600 hand-selected carp & 14 catfish from some of the UK’s best-known fish dealers, some of which we have been growing on in our stock lakes since 2006. This has ensured there is a good cross-section of all strains of carp including the original fisher pond mirrors, clean commons, heavily scaled mirrors, fully plated and linears. The carp range from brand new virginal doubles to a very large head of beautiful 20’s & as we write this we estimate there are 35+ different 30lb carp present. The current lake record Mirror is a fish known as ‘Rambo’ weighing in at 44lb 9oz and the lake record Common is ‘Buster’ at 40lb. With both good numbers and sizes of fish present, this water offers a realistic chance of an all round great session.
There are on-site toilets.
Entrance gate is kept locked at all times.
