THE BIG LAKE is a 10 acre gravel pit. The lake has depths down to 22ft as well as bars, gullies and weed beds. The lake has two main bodies of water and a wide channel linking the two, the Back Bay is slightly shallower.
The fish were stocked over the winter of 2010/11 and have been fed 2 tonnes of Carp pellet every year.
Many Fully Scaled, Zip Linear, Double Linear, Leathers and some cracking Commons have been stocked making for a different scale pattern on every capture.
The lake holds over 500 fish, 300 x 20lb+ fish, 40 x 30lb+ carp and 5 over the magical 40lb mark. With Kamara at 46.8lb begin the lake record.
There has been a track made around the lake to allow anglers the ability to park behind their chosen swim, only pegs 7 and 8 require a short walk from the car park.
Many trees including Willows, Alder, Oaks and Birch have planted around the lake to bring the old pit to life.
We have erected at great cost an ‘Otter fence’ to keep these predators at bay.
