An immense body of water with some incredible shoals of Bream. A very popular venue with bream and tench anglers as they are present in good numbers and sizes.
Large Eels have also been reported and a good number of decent perch.
To those that track them down, there are a great number of large carp with the largest recorded (the eye) coming out at 52lb though sightings of this fish have waned since the floods of 2007.
Very popular in winter with pike anglers.
Useful for lesser able bodied anglers as the top swims can be parked in making it possible to more or less fish from the car
