Aspen Lake comprises of the main Carp & Course Fish Lake & a newly formed & stocked 10 swim Match Lake.
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 39lb 13oz, 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 9lb 8oz, other fish stocked were: two hundred Crucian Carp now up to 3lb 6oz, two hundred Bream now up to 12lb, & thirty Chub.
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 12lb & possibly a lot bigger & even more incredible Common Carp to 32lb 8oz.
The first photo below is of the main lake holding the much larger fish including Mirror Carp, a few Common Carp, Tench & Bream.
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 & Perch plus the occasional large ones, 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 the 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.
