Costessey Number 1
This lake is approximately 4 acres and is well known locally as a good silver fish venue, although a few common carp also inhabit the lake. This lake just gets more popular each year with our regulars, as the easy parking and few blank sessions make this a great float fishing lake.
Costessey Number 2 (Ski Lake)
As its name suggests, this lake is shared with a local water-skiing club. The lake contains several known carp which top 30lb, best known fish this year being a fully-scaled carp weighing 36lb. The lake is a long rectangle in shape approximately 15 acres, with a good selection of bars and plateaux within it. With the skiing the lake fishes best after dark, but if targeting the carp be wary of the type of ground-baits used as the lake has a prolific head of bream residing in it.
Top-tip: Donít ignore the margins as the carp regularly frequent them.
