Poppy Hill - Jubilee Lake

As the name would suggest, Jubilee Lake was constructed in 2002/3 to celebrate the 50 years of the clubs existance. The area that the lake sits used to be occupied by disused and over grown stock ponds. With only around 10 pegs, 2004 saw the first seasons fishing with spectacular results.

Stocked mainly with Tench around the 10" mark, there is also a handful over 2lb and a few Golden Tench. Jubilee also holds the club record Pure Crucian Carp (no cross breads in here) record at 3lb 4oz although the main stamp of Crucians run at about 6". Rudd, Perch and Skimmers, chunky and about the size of your hand make up the rest of the stock.

The Pole seems to be the preferred method although waggler has also produced some good results with Pellet or Sweetcorn for bait. This is the lake if you want some none stop Tench and Crucian action, there are no real monsters but 50-60lb bags are not uncommon.
