Butterfly Fishing Lake – Here at Perran Springs
Butterfly Lake is great for family fishing, with the average stamp of carp being 1lb to 3lb, although some go up to to 15lb. Tench, big perch, rudd, roach and bream are also heavily stocked.
The best method on Buttefly is float fishing, either waggler, or pole fishing by the islands.
Fishing in the margins on each of the lake corners can also produce large catches.
Smaller baits are great for catching the crucian carp
Total catches of 50lb-plus are not uncommon.
It’s the smallest of our 3 lakes, but packed with fish so you can catch all day!
Baits that work well, and which are stocked in out shop are:
– 4mm or 6mm expander pellets
– Luncheon Meat Hook and Hair Expander Pellets 6mm
– Stillwater Silvers Stimul8or Groundbait
We sell a variety of pole floats and wagglers, and recommend you plumb the depths before fishing. The average depth is around 3 to 4ft.
Need some help – when you’re here, just ask Andrew for advice regarding baits, tackle and the lakes.
Butterfly was last re-stocked in November 2017, increasing the already large stamp of fish:
Over 100 6-8” Crucian Carp
Over 100 8-10” Bream
Approximately 80 tench all over 1.2lb
Our fish are kept in good condition and health, due to residents following our fishing lake conditions. These include using a professional knotless landing net, padded un-hooking mat, barbless hooks and disgorger. Keepnets are not permitted.
