The lake is one acre in size, and has 21 pegs which are either slabbed or mown grass.
The lake was built in 2000, and has a depth of 3-4 feet, and there are several deeper holes, which will hold the fish in colder weather.
In 2008, the lake was re-stocked with a good head of carp, roach, rudd, tench, goldfish and a few bream.
There is an island in the lake which can be reached on oneside with a 16 metre pole, fishing tight to the reeds.
Other popular methods include a small feeder tight to the island, waggler fished at around 5-7 rod lengths out, or down the margins late in the afternoon.
When fishing the feeder, only non-tether rigs should be used.
Banned baits are boilies, nuts, high protein bait, ground bait and dog/cat food.
Baits allowed are maggot, castor, worn, corn, meat, bread, and pellet.
The park also operates a no keep net approach for pleasure anglers, but they can be used in organized matches.

During the winter months, scale down to thinner diameter line, smaller hooks, and also feed sparingly. The carp in the lake will still feed in the colder weather, and all baits will work, though you may have to wait a little longer for bites. When hooked, the fish put a good fight, especially when using lighter tackle.

The fish have lots of natural feed available, and are putting on weight and size since being introduced to the lake.

Pellet, meat and corn also work well, and can often `catch` the bigger fish.

Best method is to fish a small feeder to the island with a hook length of 9” - 12”, or by fishing at 1”-2” over depth when fishing with a float rod or pole.
