Dawns Vale

Peaceful rural fishing lake


My Son and I fished your lake for 36hrs at the begining of April this Year. Arriving a bit later than expected we missed the early rush but picked up some single figure carp throughout the day. The rods started to kick in about 8 o/c on the Saturday night with a nice 15lb carp at around 3am. On 2 or 3 occasions during this time we had 2 rods going at the same time.
The lake itself is absolutely fabulous, although not very large, the depth definately makes up for it.
The fish were at the surface most of Sunday with a few small carp coming out on the method and a small float set up.
Could'nt work out the best bait to use as everything was catching, boilies nailing the larger carp obviously. Flavour wise, I wouldnt know what to recommend, we tried fruits, fish, even chilli and garlic thrown in for good measure but they didnt seem to care.

All in all an excellent session with excess of 200lb of Various carp including a crucian and a nice green tench 5 mins before packing up just to finish the day off.

Ive taken a few pictures I will send them over.

Cant wait to return, see you soon.

Just returned from a day and evening session.last visit to this lake was in 2002.dawn and team have done an ammazing job of preserving the fishery and has made some major improvements,as for the fishing,anyone thinking of either coming for the day /night or a weekend session will not be disappointed,as all the fish i caught during the session (16) were all good sizes and in good condition,night and day the alarms were screaming,these fish fight extremely hard.well done to Dawn and team on transformation of this lake will be back soon



 Did my first night fish on this lake and it was great, bite alarms dont stop running, what more could you want from a lake, will be fishing this lake again thats for sure
cheers adam

Great day's fishing with Grahame. Beautiful condition carp, mostly of a good size. Good fun on the surface and bottom, in the margins and the the middle. This was my first visit, but I'll be back.
