Lizzies Carp Lake
Lizzie’s Lake was the first lake on the complex to be
developed and has been well established since 1989. It is surrounded by flat grass
banks with 30 well spaced pegs which are easily accessible particularly for disabled anglers and also has onsite
Lizzie’s lake is approx. eight feet deep although
slightly shallower nearer to the island, it is stocked with a good mixture
of Common, Mirror, Ghost and Grass Carp many of these run to double figures
the largest specimen caught this year being 32lb. In addition to these you will also find some lovely Tench, and a
mixture of silver fish, although the anglers that normally fish this lake are targeting the larger specimen
Baits to use would
include sweetcorn, maggot, luncheon meat and Pellet.
Techniques to use would include both traditional and
modern carping techniques, the use of a Method Feeder on the bottom, and a waggler in shallower water, where
fishing to both the Island and the margins can all prove to be very productive.
