Depending on the size of fish you want..(a 20lb is a BIG fish in this region).
Try Bigland Hall, Newby Bridge (Few fish but over 20lb). Also Windermere, Ambleside and District waters (No night fishing but reasonable stock upto 20lb)
If anybody wants more detail please email me.
Andy - I heard somewhere that Loch Maben just over the Border has a stock of quite large carp - in excess of 20lb.I'll try to hunt the contact number out,(from memory the fishing is run by a very helpful Liverpudlian)and leave it with Chris at Cocklakes. cheers, Sam
Loch Maben, as far as i know, contains no carp. There is a loch near by that does, but they are few and far between. A better bet is to fish some of the waters in Dumfries and Galloway. There are a few her, run by the Palakona Guest house. He has several waters containing crp, or, travel another hout north to Lanak for one of the best waters in Scotland. Loads of doubles with a record of 24 pounds.
I forgot to mention Oakbank fishery near Longtown....a mature gravel pit with fish to 20lb plus? Day Ticket on site?
Also Roanhead Fisheries near Barrow, fish to 30lb?...season tickets only, but try local tackle shops for further info
At roanhead high pond has the biggest in, there is a fish called herty gerty which my mate has had out at 39 although the club does not publicise this i think they put it at mid 30 from years ago but it had put weight on also a few other 30s to go at.Bit of back bitting and nobs to put up with i believe though and you need a furness penninsula postcode
