Mayfly Fishing Lake – Here at Perran Springs

Mayfly Lake was established over twenty years ago, and holds a variety of species including double figure carp, perch to 4.5lb, big tench and big bream. If you like fishing for silvers, there are also skimmers, and large rudd and roach.

Depths range from 2ft to 5ft. Fishing near the margins or close to the 2 prominent waterlilies often produces the best catch weights.

Pole fishing is popular, but the fish are large and fight very hard, so please ensure you have the correct setup and strong elastic! Feeder is also a good method, casting to the far banks.

On a good day, you can easily catch over 100lb of carp during a 5hr fishing session. The average stamp of carp in Mayfly is around 6lb.

Baits that work well, and which are stocked in our shop include:

– Hook and Hair Expander Pellets 6mm
– 8mm Chocolate Orange Feed Pellets (to band or drill)
– Sweetcorn
– Luncheon Meat
– Bread
– Chocolate Orange Groundbait

We sell pole floats, pole elastic and accessories in our shop. Also a selection of feeders from Cresta.

We last re-stocked Mayfly in November 2017, with tench and bream over 2lb.

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.
