Orchards is a lovely mature 2-acre farm reservoir just 5 mins from the Galleywood turn off of the A12. There’s around 60 carp present with at least 10 thirties to 35lb with many 25lb plus fish and considering we only stocked 2 carp over 28lb 3 years ago they have showed exceptional growth.
The lake is 16ft deep gin clear with deep margins and marginal weed beds it’s a fantastic stalking water with the carp loving the margins. There’s 8 night swims but your free to stalk the margins so long as you’re not affecting anyone else.
Orchards is a tricky little water, but the rewards are there to be seen swimming round right in front of you they look easy to catch but there very cute fish so if you like a challenge this place is for you. This is certainly not for beginners and your expected to be able to handle 30lb fish with confidence.
Take a look on the gallery to see the quality of the stock which we add to every winter.
