Our Lake & Fish
Mill Lodge Retreat
Situated in the heart of Essex in a rural village called Ingatestone, lies a 6 acre acre grassy meadow, with a serene 3.8 acre lake.
Our lake contains over 323 fish, with carp weighing in at up to 40lb. Whilst staying with us you will have the opportunity to catch one of our two 40 pound fish, thirteen 30 pound, over one hundred fish weighing in at 20 pound and our remaining stock weighing somewhere between 10 and 19 pound.
In the summer months our lake can contain Canadian weed in certain areas mainly pods 6, 7 and 8 which can be easily overcome using the correct fishing methods. Throughout the winter season, minimal weed is present. Due to the high amount of tree surrounding the lake fallen with leaves, we recommend bait boat with solid bags and a pop up rig chod, rigs and solid bags to help conquer and catch. The lake bed is predominantly silty, so have a lead about for the hard clay spots or rent a bait boat to maximize your fishing chances
