Eagle Lake & Peters Pool - Over the Rainbow......

Blog Post Image Blog Post Image

A lovely shot by George Nixon of a rainbow over Eagle Lake on the complex.
Irish folklore has it that Fairies were said to have great wealth, and would often bury their treasures or pots of gold at the end of the rainbow. This led to the fable that the end of the rainbow contained riches that could be found, and they would be guarded by leprechauns.
George found his pot of gold at the end of the rainbow in the shape of this wondrous bar of gold weighing over thirty pounds in Peter's Pool.......

Birch Lake - Great catch of Birch Lake carp!

Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image

 There have been some tidy anglers on the lakes already this season not least Dean Cook who had a great haul of carp from Birch Lake a couple of weeks ago - leaving aside his catfish captures.
His best carp was a mirror of 37lbs 1ozs and a common of 35lbs and he had some other superb fish.

Eagle Lake & Peters Pool - Eagle Lake: who will catch the first fifty pound carp in 2020?

Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image

Eagle Lake has always been a prolific lake after we excavated the tiny pool to make it much bigger after we purchased it in 2004.

However in the last two seasons we have seen a big increase in the weights of the carp after a sustained winter feeding programme with aquaculture pellets.

The mutiple catches of twenty pound and thirty pound fish have now been replaced with multiple catches of thirty and forty pound carp, with two different carp of 49lb caught by regulars Ben and Josh in 2019. It seems certain that it will produce its first fifty pound carp in 2020. 

The Wels' catfish are growing too with the best at 99lb in 2019, with further nineties and eighties commonplace, plus the odd grass carp which are growing too. 100lb plus cats are also certain in 2020!

We have a few weeks free for 2020 and with the ability to fish Peter's Pool at the same time as it is just a few yards away from the swims on Eagle you have more carp and cats to go at, with commons to 40lb and Wels' to 50lb plus. A totally unique venue!
