Big carp catches

Pipe Lake is the members only lake with 11 swims – 4 doubles and 7 singles (including two with disabled access). The Lake caters for up to 35 members and there is currently a waiting list so why not add your name.

The stock is mainly Carp with at least 12 known 30's and more than 60 fish that are over 20lbs. In fact, there are Mirror Carp of 36lbs in the lake as well as Common Carp verging on 30lbs, Linear Carp of up 25lbs and hefty Koi Carp of 20lbs.

There are two islands on 3.6 acre lake and, like Oak Lake, the deepest parts of the lake are 14 feet deep, with shallows of three feet. Although "newer" than Oak Lake, Pipe Lake has been established for 40 years and the bark mulch-lined swims are kept in good condition to ensure members are comfortable while they fish.

Secure car parking is available near most swims and unisex toilet and shower facilities are nearby.

If you'd like to get to grips with some big fish, give one of the owners a ring – (Kevin 07771 896964, Paul 07702 384027 or Mick 07979 745741) to find out how to get your membership.
