The Fishing Lakes
Carp fishing at its best
Well known angler Bill Rushmere of the magazine Course Angling Today 
visited us in December and wrote this review of the fishing at Warren Park.

Two medium sized mature lakes that I estimated at about 2.5 acres each. 
The lake with the lodges is stocked with carp to about, Tench, good Roach, Perch that in 
winter run to well over and Crucian Carp. 
The similar sized lake to the rear is predominantly stocked with Carp. 
There are also several smaller sized ponds on site.

Fishing At Warren Park
I concentrated my efforts on the front lake fishing directly outside my lodge. 
I started off fishing with a 13ft waggler rod with a centre pin loaded with 2.5 lb b.s. line.
 My terminal tackle was a pole float holding three number 6 shot down the line with a size 12 hook
baited with a paste made from Richworth multiplex mix with corn steep liqueur. The feed was
 a couple of pints of trout pellets that had been shaken in a plastic bag with corn steep liqueur 
and left for a few hours so that the flavor had been absorbed on the pellets

I started off by baiting a swim about 13ft from the bank in about 4ft of water before casting my
 pole tackle on running gear into the swim. I did not have to wait long before I hooked into my
first fish that turned out to be a mirror carp of about 7.5 lb. This was followed by another 
two similar sized carp
before the crucians started to feed. As I expected, the crucians gave very
 shy bites that were hard to detect but as the session progressed I got used to them and was catching a 
crucian on most casts. I placed the crucians I caught in my carp landing net for 1.5 hours and was 
surprised to find that I had had over 30 of them. I photographed these and returned them. 
I continued to fish on, catching crucians with the odd roach to 6oz for the next 4 hours.
 The best crucian was weighed at 2lb. 6oz.
 and my bag was estimated at over
 The following day I fished on using the same tactics to make a similar catch. 
However I did manage a nice double figured mirror carp in with the bag.
 The next day I decided to fish with the same tackle but set the float shallow.
 I fed heavily with pellets and started to catch nice roach, many of them were 
pushing the pound with the best at 4oz. I also had crucians and ordinary carp in the catch.

The last day I fished with floating crust and caught mainly large single-figured carp. 
It was very pleasing but very tiring as I spent most of my time playing fish! 
Unfortunately few of the fish were double figured but there were clearly bigger fish present.

"There is no doubt that Warren Park is a top class fishing venue and 
a real bag-up water. The accommodation was also good, making it the 
ideal place for fishing holiday. You can even have your breakfast in the swim by your lodge!"
