Over the years, this landscape has created the perfect conditions for its carp to grow to massive sizes. Without a doubt, Eden’s Lakes is an ideal location for big fish angling. There are three carp fishing lakes, originally constructed over twenty years ago. The lakes also contain purpose-built, oak-timbered swims which are ideal to fish from. Layers of hard-core fills for drainage and a gravel topping will provide protection for your bivvies. Also, in each swim, there are monster cradles, floatation slings and tripods.

Clay and silt-bottomed with gravel areas often frequented by the fish. All of the lakes at Eden’s contain common, mirror and grass carp. In addition, you’ll find koi in the three-acre Simon’s Lake, and also in the three-acre Jolly Pad Lake, along with sturgeon.

Most notably, the number of anglers per lake is limited to a minimum, making the resort an exclusive area for fishing and providing plenty of space for anglers to remain undisturbed.

The North Lake is the number one specimen lake and is an impressive five acres in size. It’s a difficult lake to fish, which makes it ideal for anglers that relish a challenge. It is also the most rewarding lake, with the possibility of landing carp that weigh more than 66 pounds. On the other hand, Simon’s Lake was originally created for action water fishing. It is now on the way to being Eden’s Lakes second specimen lake.

The Jolly Pad Lake is restricted to just four anglers and can be hired for exclusive use making it well suited to small parties. For families, there is enough land to allow children plenty of space to run around without disturbing other anglers.
