Swallow lake is dedicated to day tickets 365 days a year. The lake contains mainly carp, commons and mirrors and we have gradually increased the size of the fish over the years with a policy of netting each winter and removing any carp under 7lb and then introducing a similar weight of larger fish. At the start of the 2023 Spring season the majority of the fish in the lake were 7lb to 22lb with every other fish being a double figure specimen. there is also a substantial head of Barbel in the 3lb-5lb range.
The lake is more challenging than Brook, we all know as anglers the trade off between the size of the fish we are targeting and the number of bites expected. The lake fishes best early morning and in the evening, particualrly on hot sunny days.
