Oak Lake: About

Oak Lake 2023 - Syndicate Lake


Oak Lake is a mature reed lined lake of 3.5 acres in size, which is full of underwater features for its rather large inhabitants to take refuge, from its obvious island swims to its hidden bars, gravel traps, silt deposits and sunken island, there are plenty of features to keep you guessing.

We added several large target fish in 2021/22 and again our plans are the same for the 2022/23 season, with Carp sourced from the impeccable VS Fisheries and our other supplier you are guaranteed there is plenty to fish for and Oak Lakes future is firmly on the map.. 

Our largest fish caught this season has been the mighty Shoulders at a whopping weight of 45lb. The large common still remains un-caught in several seasons now and could challenge Shoulders pound for pound and with plenty of fish to back them up.

The Match Guys along with the fishery team have been on hand this year to thin out the smaller carp and Bream and continue this year on year to thin out the smaller stock.
