ISLAND POND – Rackerhayes Complex

Island is a lake of about 5 acres, which has two distinct areas, known as the front and backwaters that are separated by an island. It is the first lake on the right when viewed from the car park. This lake holds most species including Carp to the 30lb mark. In addition, it holds a large head of tench to 10lbs, good-sized roach, rudd, pike, bream, and eels. The bream are now approaching nearly 10lbs. Recent summers have seen algal blooms affecting the water but recent hard work by volunteers should rectify this problem. Most methods work well, with boilies being the favored bait for the larger carp. For the match or pleasure angler, the pole is effective in the front waters with the waggler or feeder working well in the back. The tench fishing is often excellent.
