It has an average depth of 4-6ft with a gravel bottom and some large areas of silt.
Firs Lake Swims
BBQ Bay (House Swim)
BBQ Bay (also referred to as the House Swim) is a beautiful swim, cunningly named due to its idyllic location right in front of the house.
Perfectly placed to allow you to continue to fish while you prepare those early evening BBQ’s.
The Laurels is a very popular swim and can be known to produce excellent catches from the right hand margin reed bed, and the toward the island.
Carp Corner swim has an excellent amount of water to target, the back of the island, along the margins, and the deeper water out in front proving popular.
Firs Lake Map :
The lake contains a number of known 40lb+ carp and a good head of hard fighting catfish to over 60lb.
In November 2007 Firs was restocked with locally reared Carp from a fish farmer in nearby Pouance, introducing up to 80 fish from 15lb – low 40’s. An excellent head of large Catfish to over 60lbs help to control the smaller spawned fish. The former owners added a further 60 carp up to low 40′s in late 2011.
Throughout the year the fish at Firs Lake are fed on premium grade low oil pellets. The Carp and Cats love these pellets, which are used by many fish farmers throughout France and UK. Without doubt we highly recommend buying a sack of house pellet from us for your trip.
