Gallien’s Reach is a 50 year old stream and spring fed carp fishing and estate lake, containing mirror carp and common carp with quality water all year and is on a clay subsoil.
The lake is 3 acres in size with depths ranging up to five feet. There are 2 islands roughly central and the western end of the lake is dammed.
It has a hard bottom in some places and silty base in others which will make for challenging angling.
There is some weed cover and lilies to fish to as well.
There are 4 swims available around the lake allowing 3 anglers at any one time. Landing nets, unhooking mats and weighing slings are provided.
This water has never been fished (except by family) and there were mirror and common carp in the lake when we arrived in December 2018. We enhanced the stock in February 2019 after netting the lake in December to remove excess silver fish.
We increased our stock again in January, February and May 2020. We have added over 48 mirror carp and 7 common carp ranging from 6kg (14lb) to 18kg (40lb), with the average weight now around 10kg (22lb). We also added some young ghost koi in May 2020 to grow on
Additionally, there are some zander, perch and roach in the lake.
The fish spawned in May 2019 and have been feeding well since.
