Stocked in 2003 with 2,500 prime carp to 18lb from British Waterways' bagging Mecca, Drayton Reservoir, Thorpe Lea has already proved itself to be a spectacular fishery and the carp are packing on the weight fast with 27 fish over 30lb already reported and 1 in 3 fish being over 20lb. Bottom baits, floaters, zig rigs, method feeders, bagging wagglers and even the fly all scored in 2014 with non-stop action and mega hauls of carp.
You too can experience the fishery that everyone has been talking about and since 2007 you can now night fish our lake - just don't expect to get much sleep!
Transportation from the car park to the swims is provided free of charge for the disabled, with a small charge made for others if needed.
