Pit 2 and 4 are a lot shallower so may respond better to the sun and milder day time temperatures better that we are getting

Cheers for the mega response! When I get there later I shall have a walk around and get a feel. I could have a day on both if it comes to it. Only going to give a new camper a run out and test so a bend in a rod will be a bonus.
As you say itís ashame the website isnít up to date and more informative.
Thanks again

All the lakes have decent size carp in ie doubles
Pit 2 does have lots of small carp and some bigger ones up to about 28lb no real snags with quite a bit of gravel patches some really rough. Fishes ok even in cold weather. Lots of skimmers and bream though so take that into account. If really windy this lake is very sheltered so good choice.
Pit 4 small 2 islands 5ft deep plenty of really small carp but also some good doubles can be fun if you want something completely different
Parkland now Iíve fished it this winter and so far I would say itís not much like the info on the website I think that is out of date. There are a lot more small fish in there than it states on the website the depths are nowhere near 39 ft I think a lot of the bank has gone into the lake and back filled it . The average depth is probably 9ft so fairly deep. I have found depths down to 13 ft but not much deeper although there are a couple of areas I have not tried so could be deeper.
Most people I have seen fishing this lake blank it is not easy or a runs water but the fish are mostly in pristine condition when you do get one apart from some of the fish they put in from pit one small ones which they do not mention on the website. I believe they also lost some of the original stock possibly to an otter.
It is also very open and when itís windy itís like the North Sea with no sheltered spots due to the orientation of the lake and prevailing wind.

Thanks both!
Iíll pack the Carp gear and see how it goes, a bend in the rod this time of year is a bonus I guess away from the syndicate. Have been told he site itself is really good and nice.

I see parklands is fairly new and been stocked with mid doubles and has some twentyís the website says it has depths to 39 ft despite only being 4 acres, thatís some depth!

I was guessing the other specimen lake was going to be a bit of a runs water with small carp in with the odd bigger one amongst them!

If you re looking for a few hours fishing with a good chance of a bite or two, Iíd give it a go on lake 2. You could target this with standard carp gear or heavy ish float tackle. Iíve not fished for a while but have had many hours fun there in the past. I reckon you could expect your average catch size to be high singles/low doubles but I have seen an occasional fish in the low twenties Other than parklands, which I have no experience of, the other lakes are mostly geared towards the pole/pleasure type anglers. Not deriding that, just guessing that you re wanting to focus on carp. Take it for what it is, Iím sure you ll enjoy it, itís a nice set up imo if you keep that in mind

Fished pond 4 in October had plenty of carp up to 10lb There was no one on park lake but speaking to a couple that go regularly said park lake was a bit of a ball buster with very little coming out. The other specimen lake was a couple of chaps on there but blanked. Not being nasty but seemed to be fishing a bit half hearted. Me and wife will be going back mid March for a week and have a go on speci lake.

I live 5 mins away away from it and haven't even considered fishing there. Pretty sure you could take your light gear and tackle the specimen lakes mate.

Hi all, stopping at Eye Kettleby Lakes at the weekend possibly and thinking of taking the rods seen they have two so called specimen lakes there for the Carp. One is lake two and the other the new parklands lake.
Apart from there website searches have not come back with much more info on the Carp fishing.
Anyone been here and fished is it worth it? Or should I just pack my light gear and fish the mixed lakes!
Cheers in advance
