Are you planning to update this list ?
If so I would like you to consider including my venue, Lenton Lakes.


Having retired at the beginning of 2010 I bought the lease to two lakes which are available for use on day/night tickets or on a membership basis.

Lenton Lakes fishery consists of two very different lakes which sit side by side on a site just off the A1 near Brampton, Cambs.

The site is about 1/2 mile from Brampton centre, which contains a supermarket, and a couple of takeaways. There is a clean toilet on site during the summer months, and the owner or one of the bailiffs is there every day.

Carp baits may be purchased including the sites own brand " SIMPLY CARP " together with the complete range of Heathrow Bait Services products.

Although the original lake ( locally known as the A1 pit ) has been in existence for some 40 years or more the lease to the site was only acquired by the current owner in April this year, who has embarked on an ambitious programme designed to make the site one of the best carp/ mixed fisheries in the area.

The smaller of the two lakes, LENTON ONE, is a very picturesque lake of approx three acres. it is surrounded by mature trees and bushes, and has two small islands in the middle. there are 28 pegs all of which are big enough to take a bivvy.

Having been restocked in Febuary 2011 this lake now contains around three hundred mixed carp up to 26 lbs, bream to 12 lb, tench to 7 lb, along with a good mix of roach, rudd, and perch.

The depths vary from 8/9 feet at the end nearest to the road to around 16 feet at the far end. The bottom is almost entirely silt, with no under water snags and hardly any weed. The water does tend to be rather clear at times.

LENTON TWO ( formerly the A1 pits ) is a very different kettle of fish. This water will appeal to the hard core carp man and "stalker " and is currently very much an unknown quantity.

For well over ten years the lake has been totally neglected, and has hardly been fished at all. As a consequence parts of it remind one of the Amazon, and no one really knows just what monsters lurk in its depths.

Although this is one piece of water its contains lots of islands, jetty’s, etc, so in reality it’s a quantity of individual pools which are all joined together.

The depths range from 4 feet to 9 feet, and in parts the water is quite snaggy. the bottom has some good gravel areas together with some heavy silt. the lake also contains very large areas of lilies during the summer months.

The lake currently has a total of 19 swims, most of which are large enough for a bivvy, but these are being added to all the time.

Now for the important part, THE FISH .
The largest carp caught in 2010 was a 37 lb common, with a tench at 11 lb and a bream at slightly over 14 lb. This lake also contains roach, rudd, perch, some very large pike, and for those who are interested, some very, very large eels.

Individuals considering fishing this lake are requested to contact the owner, who will arrange to meet you on site and show you around.

Lenton Lakes do have a comprehensive website detailing the fisheries, rules, contact details and ticket prices.


In fact the owner has very kindly offered Carp.com members a complimentary day ticket, please contact him via PM, his username on the forum is adrianarnett

Virginia Syndicate in on the Earith Carp Lakes site at Fen Drove, Earith.

The actual syndicate has fishing on 4 lakes on the site, these being Pingrees, Pats Pool, Georges Water and Virginia Lake and its offshoot "Sub Lake" Reeds.

I joined Virginia in 2004/2005, and for 2 years had some absolutely amazing fish from what is a beautiful water.
The stock in the lake has fish from single figures all the way up to over 30lb, many of them beautiful commons, but with a good smattering of good looking mirrors, along with the occasional dinosaur :wink: :lol:
The syndicate is secure the gates are locked every night.

Virginia lake itself is split into two sections, Willow Walk end is open and almost circular and split from the other end by a spit separating the two sections, the industrial estate end is more covered with islands, silt patches, gravel bars and overhanging trees.

The fish in this lake really do enjoy a good food source bait, they get onto it and stay on it as long as you are fishing it right.

Pats Pool, Georges Water and Reeds I tended to use as my daytime stalking/floater fishing areas as I found that much of the action on Virginia came at night, even in the middle of winter.

Ian Jones who runs it has set up a good website at:
http://www.carp-lake...akes/4527199542 and his phone number is on the website, but I'll put it here:
contact Ian Jones, 07759199256

This site covers both of the syndicates and includes rules, joining fees, site map, a gallery and some of the latest catches.

In addition I have a battle worn and faded map of the lake with many of the features marked in with depths around them.
