Compton's Lake was restocked with Carp up to 30lb in Winter 2015. With plenty of naturals to feed on and a supplementary feeding plan, we have seen growth rates up to and over 30lb in the last 3 years(2018) with plenty of 40's and 50's coming out last year (2018), and this will continue on into the future. This lake is classed as a medium to hard water, but as always, effort equals reward!
To date, we estimate to have around ten to fifteen 50's, thirty to forty 40's, a good head of 30's, with some 20's and teens coming up through the ranks. We have had a few small carp caught this year around the 3lb to 6lb mark, which is a great sign, as these will be the 50's and beyond of the future! We have had growth rates of well over 10lb a year on some fish. 'The Tailor' went in at 19lb in December 2015 and three and half years later, she has packed on 38lb 12oz...
Compton's Lake can be booked Lake Exclusively for up to 4 anglers, or as individual spaces for up to 3 anglers. We limit individual anglers to 3, so each angler has roughly an acre of water to fish. Depths range from 2 feet to 14 feet, with the average depth of water ranging around 6 to 10 feet.
We have also stocked some more young carp over this Winter (2017) between 17 and 22lb bringing the current stock level up to approximately 130 carp.
Other species include Tench (to 7lb so far) and the usual Roach/Rudd, Perch, Pike to balance the eco system of the lake.
