Oasis

For a more secluded and quiet situation it is worth trying this 15 peg, half acre lake set behind Alice Springs. It has a separate car park with close proximity to pegs. This is a good pole lake as every peg has an island to fish to at 12-15m. Stocked with generally smaller fish than some of the other more mature match lakes, this water is probably ideally suited for the beginner or as a match venue for some of the smaller angling clubs.

There is a good head of silver fish in this lake with plenty of skimmers, rudd and roach. Chub have also been stocked in large numbers with some up to 1.5lbs in weight. Mirror and common carp can reach up to 8lbs with the average in the region of 2-3lbs. Barbel to 5lbs, crucians to 1lb, green tench and some very nice golden tench are also stocked. Best baits are pellets, sweetcorn, luncheon meat and because of the large numbers silver fish maggots, castors and worm.
