ABOUT the resERVOIR

 

 

The reservoir was originally built to store water to irrigate the fruit trees on the farm. It is now a fully mature lake, with 29 designated swims, surrounded by reed beds and willows. There is car parking space very close to the water providing easy access. At it’s deepest the water is around 4.5m. There are two marginal ledges, one at 1m depth, the other is at 2m.


The reservoir contains a large head of carp to 33lb, with lots of doubles. There are a good number of tench to a best weight of nearly 9lb. Good bags of roach are taken with fish to well over 2lb. There are also bream to 6lb, perch to over 5lb, plus rudd, crucian carp, golden orfe, and huge gudgeon. This is a very prolific water, however your fishing methods need to adapt very closely to the water temperatures. In the summer use big baits - soft pellet, sweet corn, luncheon meat, bread & dog biscuit. As the water cools down greatly reduce feed, hook size & terminal tackle.


Due to it’s depth, large pleasure catches can be caught during the winter months, fishing a maggot  hook bait with fishmeal ground bait in the feeder, mixed in with a few pellets. Roach fishing is excellent off the bottom, bigger fish will come to the caster on either waggler or pole.
