Lake 2

Several bags of over 100lb are taken on a weekly basis during the summer months from this match and pleasure angler’s haven, with numerous nets of over 300lb being landed on a yearly basis. With such amazing sport on offer, it is not hard to see why many top flight match anglers consider this to be THE BEST competition water in the country.

Although the average stamp of carp is between 7 and 8lb, there are stacks of double figure specimens, with the odd low twenty thrown in for good measure. When the going gets tough, which it rarely ever does, there are large shoals of roach and skimmers that willingly feed throughout even the most arctic of conditions.

Method feeder tactics presented in either open water or tight against the island work well on this 3.4 acre water, with dead maggot or corn hookbaits your best bet. Pole fishing in the margins with strong tackle can also account for some hefty lumps later in the session.

Lake Two is usually booked up at weekends for scheduled matches, although pleasure anglers are encouraged to get stuck into this prolific water on weekdays.
