Oak Lake has a total stock of 32 carp as you can see in the gallery below. (There are only 30 fish pictured as we unfortunately lost two of the pictures from when they were stocked. The fish pictures missing are a 19lb real old leather and the other a young 14lb mirror, we will add them to the gallery when they are caught)
There are two fish above the 20lb mark with the rest of the stock being doubles. These were stocked into Oak on 28.02.22 from our Specimen Lake ‘Station’. They are cracking fish, a real mix of older and younger fish, mirrors and commons and even a couple of ghosties!
We are looking to increase the stock up to around 50 carp, these will continuously be moved from Station lake as and when to ensure Oak lake continues to improve.
We have created 5 new peg’s which are all located on the same bank. With peg 4 being a double peg for two anglers. So a total of 6 anglers fishing at one time. The far bank will no longer be accessible for anyone.
We are excited to announce that we will now be allowing night fishing on Oak lake. Many anglers want to fish next to their friends when night fishing, so you can choose your swim, when you book.
Oak is 5ft on average, but as you can see in the video and on the lake map it has four gravel/clay bars running across it’s width which are key features and definetely worth finding.
The margins are also a nice feature so if the weather is warm, taking time to locate and bait a spot or two on the far or near margin would be a wise move.
As is standard with all lakes on the complex, the fish in Oak are being fed heavily with the house pellet so we strongly recommend its use, but any pellet combined with a good quality, freezer bait and some maize or sweetcorn will be sure to stand you in good stead and provoke a response from the fish!
