Charlie lake is a mature 24 acres gravel pit that has an island and numerous bays to fish. The lake is over 20 years old and was originally stocked with over 400 hundred carp. Both mirrors and commons are present. The largest carp caught to date is a mirror of 64lb15oz, which is about 29 kg. There has been over 20 other 40lb plus mirrors and commons also caught on this lake. We estimate the average size of the fish to be 28lb plus with the fish growing by as much as three pounds per year.

This means that each angler will always have their own area of water to fish. The water has got four double swims and a further eight individual swims. The lake has an average depth of five to seven feet with quite a uniform flat bottom. There's a draw for the swims. The draw is always at 12 noon.
