Large pleasure bags can be achieved from this water. It is a difficult water to learn especially without advice, but can be very rewarding when you have mastered the technique of the sloping bottom hence THE BASIN.
There are various methods to learn on this lake. An accurate plumb up and a steady feed pattern should give you bites all day! Nevertheless, be warned, with the hard fighting barbel, concentration is a must, take your eyes off your rod and it will be dragged into the depths.
Very smilar to the East Lake, but with the added bonus of a center island, which if you can get close enough with a float or feeder will give you another option to fish on.
This is a small-secluded water with an island to one side, ideal to fish to on a pole. The overhanging branches make it difficult to fish to on a rod and line but a feeder round the back of the island is a good option. Large carp are taken mainly from the rear of the island or on the surface against the tall trees.
A bite a chuck on maggot, castor or pinkie feeding the same. Larger carp can be taken on pellet or sweetcorn. This canal is designed for the club angler with a maximum 10-metre pole, but is equally suited to the pleasure angler on rod and line. You will be sheltered with a grass bank to your rear and small coppice to the front.
Large stocks of small fish here with the added bonus fish. It is a 17 peg oval water 10 metres wide. Fish to the far side, tight against the bank on the deck or come mid-water and fish up in the water on castor or pellet.
A small picture postcard water with large pole breaking carp. What can I say! If you want to test your skills this is the water. Fish the margins, far bank or centre track all of which produce good weights. No large bags! Just quality.
Good up in the water fishing, also against the island. A good water reserved for pleasure fishing only. This water is close to the café and car park, ideally suited if one of your party wants to sit in the cafe and watch.
