The Lakes

Pegasus Lakes is made up of two stunning, fantastic sized lakes. Lake One of 30 acres (now open) and Lake Two 32 acres (opening soon), both provide everything that the modern-day carp angler requires and show no signs of catfish, Poisson chat or crayfish presence.

Lake 1 consists of 7 double swims and 2 spacious single swims and is for a maximum of 14 anglers with parking available behind your allocated swim or in the car park. A 30-acre gravel pit was dug around 2007. It has everything expected from a decent lake – gravel bars, silt, clay and weed with depths of around 8-12ft.


When you book, you can book a single swim or a double swim, numbered 1-2, 3-4, 5-6 etc. Please note, these are not reflective of which swims you are booking. The numbers represent you and your fellow angler’s place in the draw for specific swims which are allocated (by way of a draw) on the day of arrival to ensure everyone has a fair chance.  Prices for double swims are based on 2 anglers, per double swim.

The Stock:

The water is of superb quality and has earned the fond nickname “the golden mile” reflecting how big the carp grow. The lake was restocked in winter 2019 and around 800 locally farmed carp up to 42lb were added and then again with 60 hand-picked magnificent scaly mirror carp. Lake 1 is home to a few unknown carp originating from the lake being stocked by the local farmer when first dug. One of these magnificent creatures was caught and weighed in at 40lb 9oz.

An extensive feeding program has been carried out since the carp were stocked, this is proving to be a great success as all carp that are being caught currently are up in weight, in immaculate condition and are unbelievable hard fighting fish.

In winter 2020 we handpicked some stunning mirror carp and stocked these. Soon to be up in weight.
