Aspen Lake comprises of the main Carp & Course Fish Lake & a newly formed & stocked 10 swim Match Lake.
Aspen Lake is a Syndicate Fishery, anyone wishing to join the syndicate (if accepted) will be asked to make a one off payment of £50 to go on the waiting list, when your name comes to the top of the list you will be asked to pay a further £410 to go onto the syndicate, please note the £50 is a waiting list fee not a deposit & is non refundable. The syndicate membership will run for 12 months from the date you pay, this payment will entitle you to fish the main carp lake with 32 well spaced swims, plus the day ticket match lake. There are no day ticket options except for on the match lake if you are not in the syndicate, the charge for which is just £6.00 per day for one rod or £10.00 per day for two rods.
We try to keep membership on the syndicate at around 75 members, please feel free to come in & walk round before you join but please remember our rules, no under 14s & no dogs.
There is a very clean toilet on site with a wash basin, there is also an outside tap for drinking water.
No gate code or keys are required to enter the fishery, the gate is on an electronic lock, it unlocks at 7.00am & locks at 10.00pm.
There are 32 swims, plus 10 on the match lake, so we have never had a situation where no swims were available.
The main lake was stocked in the winter of 2005/2006 with 100 Mirror Carp at 4lb to 6lb these are now being caught up to 46lbs we also stocked two hundred 6 to 8 inch Tench plus twenty 5lb Tench from Horseshoe Lake at Lechlade, the Tench record on the lake now stands at 10lb 7oz, other fish stocked were: two hundred Crucian Carp now up to 3lb 6oz, two hundred Bream now up to 15lbs, & thirty Chub. No Crayfish are present at the fishery that we know of.
Although there are no inlets into the lake we feel nature has helped with the stocking as well & we now have other species including: Roach to 2lb 8oz, Rudd to 2lb, Perch to 3lb 5oz, Pike to 15lb & possibly a lot bigger & even more incredible Common Carp to 33lb 3oz.
The first photo below is of the main lake holding the much larger fish including Mirror Carp, a few Common Carp, Tench & Bream.
There are 32 swims on the main lakes, no day tickets will be issued.
The second photo is of the 10 swim Match Lake which has recently been shallowed to a depth of 6ft & stocked with 650 mixed Rudd & Roach, 350 Crucian Carp & 400 Bream there is also an abundance of small Tench + large Tench to 7lb & Perch, as no fish were removed while the shallowing of the lake was being carried out there could be a few other surprises in there as well.
As you can see there are ropes across the Match Lake, these are an attempt to deter Cormorants, this has worked extremely well through last winter & no cormorants have been seen on the lake, there are no nets hanging below these ropes & we have found the ropes have no adverse effect on the fishing.
The 10 swim Match Lake can be booked exclusively for the day for £60.00 just call us on 07388411472 or 01285 861530
Alternatively you are welcome to fish it on you own or with a smaller group for: £6.00 per angler with one rod per day or £10.00 per day with 2 rods.
