Turnford Complex - Lea Pit

Slipe Lane, Wormley, EN10 6, Herts, United Kingdom

A gin clear 6 acre Lake with one island and 14 swims mostly built to easily take bivvies is the water for the true specimen hunter.

Not as heavily stocked as Railway with Carp, but those that are there are very large to over 40lbs.

February 2008 saw a further 15 absolutely beautiful large scaled Mirrors introduced as part of our stocking program.

The lake also contains an abundance of Bream, 100lb+ catches are quite possible with individual fish exceeding 10lbs. Large beds of ground bait are the order of the day as the Bream are numerous and ravenous. Any swim will produce as the shoals patrol the whole lake.

Although fewer in number the lake offers some excellent specimen Tench fishing. Individual weights exceed 10lbs and the weedier areas of the lake should be targeted.

Both the Bream and Tench show best of an evening and through the night and have proved popular with overnighters with 24 hour all year round fishing offered.

In the past this lake was the match venue and as a result has vast numbers of silver fish. Large catches are easily achievable. Specimen Roach, Rudd, and Perch are also a distinct possibility with a little effort. Any of the swims will produce, but the road and canal banks offer the best chances.

Winter brings the chance for fishing for the large Pike. Having fed well on the vast larder of Roach and Bream, specimens in excess of 30lbs are present.

Many anglers are not aware of the quality fishing this lake has to offer.

Pike over 30lb

This lake has a really bad crayfish problem fished it a couple of times with hard hookers to end up losing most of my rigs due to the crayfish lovely looking lake and I'm sure the carp are lovely but until the Cray problem has been addressed I shall not be back
