Oscar’s Lake was built in 2004.
Heavily stocked with Carp this has become a very popular day fishing and match fishing lake.
The largest Carp are now almost 20lbs but with a good spread of weights. Matches regulary catch in excess of 100lbs with match record over 150lbs. There is a good range of Carp: Mirror Carp, Common Carp and F1 Carp.
The lake has 32 pegs and parking, when dry, is behind each peg, or on the car park, which is nearby.
Designed as a canal style lake, and often referred to as a Snake lake, this offers a great alternative to the Main Lake and Frog Hall.
Match bookings taken for any day, except Mondays.
Start on the far bank and work towards you through the session. The long pole line with 4mm fishery pellets works well through the year. During the warmer months you will catch large numbers of the F1's fishing shallow, whilst the larger carp may well be found on the deck below the F1's. Pole and waggler fishing both work well, with a hook length of 3lb (0.12mm). Fish a short waggler between 1ft and 2ft down.
The pellet feeder and bomb work particularly well towards the island when fishing at each end of the lake.
Fishing tight to the banks with corn or worm has produced large match bags and the bigger 'evening' carp. Luncheon meat catches here too.
Scale down to a size 18 hook and try banded caster or maggot and loose feed the fishery micro pellets. Expander pellet also has its day. A bomb and corn approach works too, especially in the harshest conditions.Ensure that you have several lines being fed and rotate between them.
