Elton is a carp lake based in Newnham, Gloucestershire, United Kingdom. It has a stock of around carp and is 3 Acres in size. The biggest carp is over 30+
We opened the Horseshoe lake in June 2007. The classification of this Lake has been changed as of 2018 to a Specimen Lake. This is due to the Fish outgrowing the commonly recognised Match Lake criteria & from the introduction of WELS Catfish
This Lake has been stocked with some very strong breeds of Carp such as the Laney Bloodline and Redmire Commons.
Every year the fish have spawned twice with thousands of fry evident in the margins in the Summer/Autumn.
We have already had a good number of 20lb+ Carp up to a 29lb Mirror Carp grown within this Lake. There are plenty of Variations of colour with a good head of colourful Ghost Carp. There are Bream up to 10.7lbs currently as well as Roach, Rudd, Perch and Tench. The Cats do go upto and over 60lb
Due to the colour of water and Clay content this Lake can present some challenges and should not be overlooked as an easy ‘Runs’ Water. Presentation and Attraction is key in catching
There are current works going on and new pegs being installed to improve the usage of this Lake due to it’s popularity
This Lake is a regional favourite for Night Fishing and social events
