Our three privately owned stocked coarse fishing lakes have islands and varying water depths, with features including reeds, wildflowers and water lilies. The Lakes are for the exclusive use of Perran Springs’ residents only, by permit, available to purchase from the Reception. Friendly advice from Andrew is available, if needed.
Please note: All three lakes are open from 8am till 10pm – this rule is in place so we can manage the lakes, but more importantly for the safety of teenagers who are fishing alone.
Advice: Most anglers catch the majority of fish from 9am to 12 Mid-day, then from 2pm onwards. Fishing close into the banks and islands will see your catch rate increase.
If you’re looking for a perfect fishing holiday in Cornwall look no further, as we have guests return year after year due to the excellent fishing available. It’s not uncommon to catch over 70lb of fish during one day.
Anglers of all levels of experience will enjoy catching the variety of fish including carp (common, mirror, leather, crucian and ghost), bream, tench, perch, rudd and roach – all in abundance large and small. See our guest’s own Perran Springs holiday ‘Big Catch’ photos. Dogs / pets are not allowed in the Lake Meadow.
To complement our Lakes, the park shop offers a wide variety of coarse rods, reels (inc Shakespeare & Spro), line, weights, floats, barbless hooks, disgorgers, pole accessories, landing nets, un-hooking mats, boxes, seats, pellets and flavoured baits.
The majority of our carp are stocked by Priory Fishery in Devon:
The carp strains we stock are the classic Leneys which are the original English strain farmed by Donald Leney, long scaly and a steady grower with more history than any other. The second strain is the German Dinkensbhul, which is shorter framed less scaled Carp but with an incredible growth rate and very domesticated which is ideally suited for farm and fishery life. By crossing the two strains we have created fast growing Carp which are a mix of leathers, mirrors, linear’s and fully scaled, perfect for a good mix within a fishery.
Butterfly Lake is great for family fishing, with carp up to 15lbs, tench, big perch, rudd, roach and bream. Best method is with a pole by the islands. Total catches of 50lb-plus are not uncommon.
Dragonfly Lake is recommended for the more experienced and patient carp angler. The majority of carp in this lake are between 10 to 20lbs-plus, with a few bigger ones in-between.
