Our Lake

Genets carp lake is a 60 year old man-made carp lake of just over 5 acres, fed by a natural spring, with a silt over clay bottom.



The anglers lodge with showers & toilets is situated on the far bank overlooking the lake.



We offer an excellent optional food package with generous portion sizes which will see you through the day...



We always hold stock of the following on-site but in order to maintain our stock levels we do ask that you pre-order your bait.


Equipment Hire

We have equipment for hire. Let us know in advance so that we can be sure it is ready.

Name: Mat Symons & Jason Falkner.

Catches: 8 x Carp to 43lb, 2 x Tench, 4 x Catfish.

No of Anglers: 2

Tactics: A mixture of baits rigs and spots accounted for the fish so hard to say a single tactic worked but most came off far margins.

General Comments: Larry and Heather were the consumate hosts. Always happy to chat and give ideas or advice as required. Fishing was tough due to immediately being post spawning but we caught some nice looking fish including a new PB for Jason. Toilet and shower block clean and tidy at all times. Food was excellent...great portions and delivery to swim is excellent as caught fish at dinner time.
