Location St. Osyth
Description

This lake is set in open farmland near St Osyth, it was dug around 2005 but has yet to be landscaped. This was a virgin water when CAPS took it on and we have stocked the water with carp ranging to over 20lb including some large mirror's. A good head of Bream to 4lb has also been stocked, along with some Roach and Rudd. 200lb of tench between 2lb & 5lb have been stocked in early 2010. There is a car park by the main entrance.

The water is used to irrigate the farmers crops, so the water level will change through out the year.

PLEASE RESPECT THE LOCAL RESIDENTS AND USERS OF DALTES LANE AND KEEP YOUR SPEED AND NOISE TO A MINIMUM.

This water will continue to under go improvements for the next year or two.

Trees have been recently planted around the lake, please take the time to give them a water during the warmer months.

In February of 2017, a number of carp from VS Fisheries were stocked into the lake. This stocking will boost the numbers of carp and it is hoped that they will quickly settle and grow to 20lb fish in the coming years.
