Clay Lakes (2)
Clay Lake 2 is a very popular Big Fish venue with Mirrors to just over 60lb and Commons to 57lb, ideal for the experienced angler.
There are at least 7 carp over 50lb and lots very close to this weight which we hope to see in 2019, many 40’s and plenty of 30lbers. Average weight last season was over 30lb and they are still growing, happy , healthy fish. We have 6 Grass Carp in Lake 2 ranging between 33lb to 48lb.
Clay Lakes are over 300 years old. Original Cassini drainable lakes, sleuths and chambers to control the water in and out. We washed out the excess clay on the lakebed at the end of last season ready for guests arriving in 2019. At just under 6 acres, this beautiful lake offers a truly Carpy experience, tucked away in a private forest , grassy and clay paths give access all around and provide the perfect setting for a weeks fishing with some friends. Sit back and relax you won’t hear any vehicles in the distance here, only the bliss and peacefulness of the local wildlife.
