Mid Kent Fisheries - Stour Lake
This lake was created in the late 1960s and covers some 20 acres. MKF stocked the venue with Carp in March 1992.
To date, Stour Lake has produced many 30lb+ carp with fish just nudging 40lb, with over a 120 different 20s.
The venue also holds a few very large Tench with the best being a 13lb 3oz monster. The lake has many features including a multitude of gravel bars, islands and reed fringed margins.
The growth rates of the Carp in this lake are phenomenal and it is surely only a matter of time before the first forty pound fish is landed.
2012/13: It has been a really good year and has produced 6 different 38lb + carp with many 20’s all of these mirrors and are the most beautiful looking carp you will find anywhere. Tench have been caught to double figures and there is a good head of nice pike.
