WELCOME TO ELTON CARP LAKES
Elton Carp Lakes has now been established for TEN years. Near the Forest of Dean, Newnham on Severn it provides excellent carp fishing for all ages and abiliites.
This has two islands and the banks have mature trees around so the lake isn't an ugly "pit." The lake has 16 pegs and there is some disabled access.
The orginal stock of carp have spawned frequently and consequently there is a wide range of carp of all sizes, some of the orginals are now over 20lb
THE BEST FISH FOR 2008 WAS REPORTEDLY 26LB!
Three years ago we stocked 5000 small fish including 1000 ghost carp,100 barbel and 100 tench.
The barbel are caught quite frequently and are quite happy as there is a constant flow of fresh water into the lake.
The best barbel of 2009 was 4.5lb and the best tench caught only last week was around 2lb.
Many of the ghost carp are averaging 1.5lb now with some of the older ghost carp being 5-6lb.
The fish are all in fine condition and even the small carp are hard fighting.
We opened the purpose built match lake in June 2007 with a charity match which is now run annually. We have team, individual and junior trophies and the 2010 event will be ON THE 26TH SEPTEMBER. Details to follow. RING NOW TO BOOK IN YOUR TEAM
The match lake was stocked with some top quality carp from Sport and Leisure Fisheries and was stocked with carp to 4lb about 1.5 tons and 6500 small carp.
TWO years running the fish have spawned twice with thousands of fry evident in the margins in the autumn.
We also put some larger fish in from the top lake and some ghost carp.
