Home Lake

Fishing Lake Home Lake

This lake is where the larger carp hang out. Even so, it is still possible to catch up to twenty fish a day. As well as Mirrors, Koi and Common Carp there are also Crucian carp, Perch Tench Roach and Bream. Due to the size and quality of the fish, we do not allow keep nets on this lake. The biggest fish in Home Lake is over 20lb.
This lake was netted in December 2020 and all of the small fish were removed. In 2018 we also extended and cleaned out the silt this has also doubled the volume and increased the over all dimesions.
Fishing is restricted to resident only to make it a great venue for a fishing holiday.
