This lake is the original lake with two islands and a weed bottom.

There are 10 pegs and a good assortment of Common Carp, Mirror Carp, Specimen Ghost Carp and Ten Japanese Jumbo Koi. The latest addition to this Lake is a handful of specialist WELS Catfish. This Lake is a well known lake due to the ‘Original’ Carp being almost Black in colour.
