Aspen Lake comprises of the main Carp & Course Fish Lake & a newly formed & stocked 10 swim Match Lake.
As from March 01st 2021 Aspen Lake will become a syndicate venue, Anglers who have paid £300 for 12 months fishing & their payment is still valid, will automatically become syndicate members with the option to renew on expiry. Anyone wishing to join the syndicate (if accepted) will be asked to pay £360 for 12 months membership. The syndicate membership can be paid for at any time of the year, providing there are still places available & membership will run for 12 months from the date you pay. There will no longer be a day ticket option except for on the match lake, anyone wanting to use this lake on a regular basis will have the option of paying an annual fee (yet to be decided).
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 10lb 7oz, other fish stocked were: two hundred Crucian Carp now up to 3lb 6oz, two hundred Bream now up to 12lb 7oz, & 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 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.
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 6lb 7oz & 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 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.
The 10 swims on the Match Lake can be booked for the day £60.00 just call us on 07388411472 or 01285 861530
