Dragonfly Fishing Lake – Here at Perran Springs

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.

We recommend you try adding some of the Glow liquid and groundbait we sell in our shop, as this tends to get the carp feeding in a frenzy!

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

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.
