Specimen Lakes 7 & 8 have all our biggest fish in the two specimen lakes. With lovely Carp, Roach, Bream and Perch you’ll find all the species here. Set on their own away from the main lakes, you have to be over 18 to fish these waters. We don’t allow day fishing on this part of the site making for less comings and goings during the fishing day. Anglers who chose to fish these lakes can be assured that numbers are strictly limited, and that they will never be overcrowded even on the busiest weekend. The river Teise runs down beside both the lakes and can offer some exciting ‘real’ fishing for those who like the wild fish, as well as some sport when fish on the lakes are not feeding.
Lake 7 features a snagged spine through the centre, this offers protection for the fish from Cormorants but poses a challenge to anglers. Fish too close to the snags and be too slow on your rods and your quarry will turn and snag you up in a second. New anglers to this part of the complex should stick to the margins or only halfway between the banks and the snags. In the summer surface fishing is the safer way to go. But if you like a challenge, this is the lake to fish.. The big Carp are still here and advice on fishing this water is available from the office.
