Sitting just to the East of Holden’s lake, Stock’s lake is a unique, ‘Golf club’ shaped lake of eight acres in size. There are 11 swims on the lake, many of which can be classed as double or at the very least, very sociable swims. They have been staggered along the ‘shaft’ of the lake so that each swim has a decent bit of water and access to the far margin.
The lake was stocked with just over 370 fish in the autumn/winter of 2020. These included 300 beautiful C3’s from our friends at Priory Fisheries Ltd and a mixture of cracking C5’s and C6’s from the one and only Mark ‘Simmo’ Simmonds at Heather Fisheries.
It then received another 385 Priory Fishery carp from one of stock lakes in the winter of 2022, increasing the stock to over 750 fish! This now means it has more fish per acre than all other lakes on the complex, second only to Hodgett’s.
The lake has depths ranging from around 8-9ft up the ‘handle’, down to around 16-17ft at the ‘head’ or bowl end of the lake. The margins are nice and shallow so if the weather is warm, taking time to locate and bait a spot or two on the far or near margin would be a wise move.
As is standard with all lakes on the complex, the fish in Stock’s have been fed heavily with the house pellet so we strongly recommend its use, but any pellet combined with a good quality, freezer bait and some maize or sweetcorn will be sure to stand you in good stead and provoke a response from the fish!
