Genesis Lake dates back to pre Napoleonic times and is at least 200 years old. There is an old mill wheel at one end of the lake which has remained since being acquired by the current owner.

Genesis lake is probably best classed as a runs water with one angler banking 76 fish in a week followed by another angler managing 65. This doesn’t mean that it is an easy lake, but locating the fish and applying the right tactics can pay huge dividends. The current largest fish is just under 50lbs and there is a decent head of 40s with eleven being banked in a week.

The lake is surrounded by mature overhanging trees including willows and bushes giving both anglers and carp excellent cover. The average depth is around 5 foot and there are 7 swims which are well spaced out around the lake ensure each swim has ample water coverage. Of the 7 swims, 5 are double swims making this a great social venue for fishing in pairs. Double swims can comfortably fit 2 bivvies. There are minimal snags as almost all have been removed.

Approximately 250 carp which of mirrors commons and a few koi carp.

Average size is around 30lbs

Lake record as of 2017 – 47lbs

A good head of 30 and 40lb fish (11 40s banked in one week)
