Fishing at Pearl Lake
Pearl Lake is a natural lake that can be fished. This is an important distinction to be made as the lake is not stocked like a fishery although there are some impressive fish in the water. It is a challenge to temp the fish out of their hiding places – the reeds and snags, the lillies and fauna – and away from the abundant natural food in the lake.
There are 7 species of fish in Pearl Lake, Common, mirror and wild carp, Tench, Roach, Pike, Perch, Golden Rudd & Bream.
The mirror and common carp have been caught over the past few years up to 25lb, normally averaging around 15 to 17lb. The average weight of the tench is around 6lb although they have been caught at over 10lb. A wonderful environment for the pleasure angler and the more serious anglers can take part in the angling society matches.
For the holiday home customers fishing is free for the touring and overnight customers day tickets are applicable.
Current EA rod licence is required.
