Thorpe lea is stocked with 2000 plus carp to 37lb 7oz with 53 different 30’s out alone last year (2019).

We have already had 11 new 30’s to add to that list this year so far up to August 2020.

Pop ups and wafters are your best approach on the lake either in a solid bag or Ronnie rig helicopter system works well for fishing into the weed but keep your baits small 12-14mm.

The lake bed is gravel with weed patches so if you know how to fish the weed, fish in it! as thats where a lot of the carp like to feed. Gravel spots also work very well.

If your using a spod mix, crush your boilies leaving just a few whole, mixed in with some pellet and a liquid of your choice.

If you are after big hits on the fishery, the pegs that reach the gravel bar across the middle of the lake are your best bet. Pegs behind the islands produce lots of fish too but you are much more likely to have some of the bigger ones rather than the quantity, so don’t be put off fishing behind an island.
