Day Ticket Lake and No.2 Lake


 

 

The majority of the fish stock is made up of carp imported from Holland in 1994 and 1995. Predominately commons, it's also home to mirrors and leathers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Original stocks of roach, perch, tench, pike, bream and a few carp were left from the early days of Dereham Angling Club. Specimen size roach to 4lb, tench to 10lb, bream to 16lb and pike to over 30lb can be caught from both lakes.

 

 

 In the Day Ticket Lake, the carp average 23lb, with a lot of anglers catching between 25-35lb fish. 

We are still seeing 30lb plus fish being caught with full curtains that have never been hooked.
