There's a large fish stock with around 50 carp per hectare which are about 1200 fish in total.The management have done their homework as there's a stunning variety with not only commons and mirrors; there are also fully scales, linear carp, koi, leather & grassies. Every fish has a micro chip and at your arrival you'll receive a chip-reader to identify every fish you land. This way the lake has a perfect view on weight increase, unwanted diseases, etc. The biggest carp weigh around 65lb. There is also some sturgeon, catfish up to 75kg, pike & silver fish. The deeper spots can be found in front of swim 15, very recommendable for those who'd like to target catfish & sturgeon.
