Mayfly Fishing Lake – Here at Perran Springs
Mayfly Lake was established over twenty years ago, and holds a variety of species including 20lb-plus carp, big tench and big bream. Fishing near the margins is best, either with a pole or rod, using a ledger or float. Our park shop has a variety of fishing tackle, accessories and bait for sale.
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.

Spent four days camping and fishing last August. Caught over 100lb of carp in one day, the biggest about 16lb. Fished mainly on Mayfly lake.
The holiday park is very friendly, clean and tidy. Andrew (one of the owners) provides very helpful tips for fishing! Thank you...
