It has traditional looking French mirrors, some heavily scaled Great Lake fish to well over 40lb and a few Common carp thrown in for good measure. The lake contains over 300 carp up to 66lb 4oz and contains an incredible amount of 30lb fish which are dark “traditional” English looking fish due to the clarity of the water. The lake caters for up to 6 anglers on an exclusive booking basis only and has seen anglers continually returning to this venue over the years for it’s stunning looking carp.
King lake is 15 acres, with 300 mirrors and common carp to just over 60lb. King lake also contains some hand picked scaly fish - these have been selected for their beauty, some of these fish are already close to 40lb.
King lake has an island which conveniently divides the lake into two halves. The lake's size makes it suitable for an exclusive booking of five anglers. This means that each angler will always have their own area of water to fish. The water has 6 swims available. The fishing on the lake is considered to be easy to moderate with multiple catches regularly reported.
