Averaging 13ft deep throughout the lake holds carp to 30lbs, good sized perch, roach and trout. The reed lined shores offers a natural looking habitat with well built platforms designed for the modern angler. Pleasure angling techniques including waggler fishing, method feeder and pole fishing work well, as do carp fishing tactics.
