Max Rods: 2 Night Fishing: N Lake Size: 6 Acres Swims: 16

Braxted Reservoir

Depths slowly fall from 3 - 18ft at the Dam in this 6 acre lake. The fish like to move about quite a lot so location is the upmost importance.

A lot of methods work well in the Reservoir, from good quality boilies, method mix, pellets and particles to name a few.

Biggest common can go to 36lb at the right time of year, and mirrors in the high 20's fish are a plenty.

There is an excellent chance of landing one of its many 20lb + residents and with carp right through the scale there is something for everyone. Also present are 8lb + Tench, shoals of good Rudd / Roach and lots of up and coming small specimens mainly tench.

Lake Record: 36lb
