Dragonfly Fishing Lake

Our specimen lake with carp to 24lb. Re-Stocked in Winter 2018 with lots of carp from 16lb to 18lb 

Dragonfly lake is the deepest and holds our specimen carp.

FREE and Exclusive Fishing for Residents Only
– no day tickets

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. Fish in the deep gullies for best results.

There is also a good stamp of carp which have naturally bred in the lake, so if not targeting the large carp you can easily catch a good head of carp around 1lb along with large roach over 1lb.

This lake is a bit of a mystery, not as fished as much as Mayfly or Butterfly as it tends to be harder, but time and persistence can reap the rewards, and you may also catch the odd very large tench or bream as well.

All methods work well, if targeting large carp with bait alarms, then boilies or pellets work well.

To catch the larger specimen carp, we recommend you try using larger pellets and boilies.

Need some help – when you’re here, just ask Andrew for advice regarding baits, tackle and the lakes.

Comments from our guests

Seriously impressed doesn’t even come close to describing the venue. On arrival, the welcome was fantastic! The owners and staff are so friendly and happy, nothing is too much trouble for them. Walking around the park it was apparent that a lot of time and effort goes into making sure everything is well kept, clean and tidy. The shop is well setup with all your essentials to hand. The 3 fully stocked lakes look unbelievable, it would be easy to think you was sat around an old estate lake.
