Billy’s is designed as Norton’s ‘big hit’ water with well over 1000 carp in 27 acres. The fish can be caught from under your feet to longer ranges of over 100 yards, so offers something for every angler, summer or winter.
At 27 acres in size, Billy’s is the largest lake on the complex, and is designed to be a real ‘action’ water where hits of multiple fish are the norm.
Billy’s was initially stocked with over 900 stunning carp up to 30lb+ but it has since received another 200+ fish, bringing the total stock up to over 1100 fish!
Much the same as Pettitt’s lake next door, the lakebed is very up and down so there’s plenty of features to fish to. Therefore, taking a bit of time to find them and apply a decent amount of bait to one of these areas is sure to give anglers the best chance of a hit of fish.
The water is usually very clear, making for an extremely rich environment. There is plenty of weed in the lake during the summer and early autumn so be mindful of that. This does mean the carp are incredibly dark in colour, often as black as the proverbial hat!
