comes from the fish…

The Stock

“What makes the charm of fishing here is the return to nature: What record fish is hiding in this lake?”

The complexity of the lake makes it impossible to net and drain. So, until they are caught we will never know what the lake holds exactly since its conception in the medieval period. An exciting prospect for any angler!

There had been no fishing until 2011! The first fishing tests were quite satisfactory with beautiful common carp up to 40lbs. However, what we can be sure of is about what carp have been added since then.

The first part of a major stocking programme took place in 2013:

A total weight of 4,500lb was stocked comprising carp between 30 and 50 lb and 10 sturgeons between 20 and 30 lb. Following on from another stock of 7 carp between 45 and 55 lb.

New in 2017 !!  3 carp betwen 50 – 58 lbs, 10 carp bewten 25 – 35 lbs and the big one : a common of 60 lbs !!
