This is a new lake offered for the first time for bookings. It is in a quiet location off the beaten track and has mature vegetation around its banks. It is difficult to put a size on the lake due to seasonal variation in the water level but would be between 3 to 4 acres we believe. The lake features an arm which opens out into a bay at one end and a dog leg of more open water at the other. From our observations the fish are quite happy to move about all over the lake but we are restricting the number of anglers to 4 to allow plenty of room.
The jewel is the stock of un-caught carp – the biggest having been stocked at 68lbs.
The initial stocking of carp to supplement the fish already there was made in July 2017 and included 2 mirrors and 2 commons between 46lb and 49lb and topped by a common of 52lb 9oz. These were summer weights so are likely to be at their lowest so we would anticipate these to be 50lb plus now with the common possibly nudging 60lb. These were added to a number of original carp present. In 2018 we supplemented this with two further stockings – the highlight being 2 x 40lb mirrors and a 40lb common and a mirror of exactly 68lb. We have tried to get a good balance of mirrors and commons and believe the stock to be around 105 carp – the largest now possibly over 70lb. As stated these fish were in immaculate condition with great proportions when stocked and almost certainly have never been caught before. This lake is not likely to be a runs water but should appeal to the angler seeking large carp in quiet surroundings. Facilities A choice of five swims catering for 4 anglers. The lake will have a partial share of facilities with Roe Deer 1 with anglers being allowed to use the shower and toilet at the top end of that lake. However this will be restricted to the hours of 7am to 8pm to prevent disturbance of other anglers on both Roe Deer 1 and Roe Deer 2. The introductory price reflects the lower level of facilities on Roe Deer 2 – there will be a separate shower and toilet block added to the lake at some time during 2019 – 2020 when the appropriate planning permissions have been granted.
Arrive 1:30 pm Saturday, Leave 12 noon the following Saturday. Facilities must be cleared by 10 am though.
