This beau­ti­ful lily-lined pool re­cently fea­tured in The Big Fish Off tele­vi­sion pro­gramme due to its ca­pac­ity to pro­duce plenty of qual­ity fish. The pool is great for cru­cians, tench and sil­ver­fish. The cru­cians alone can run to spec­i­men size and are well worth a ses­sion on their own. Fish­ing a float tight to the pads is rec­om­mended for all species. This wa­ter caters for club match­men who are look­ing to catch a big bag of stockie carp be­tween 4lb and 10lb. A re­cent triple-fig­ure net of 37 carp av­er­ag­ing 6lb-7lb was re­ported re­cently off peg 11. This peg fea­tures an is­land at around 13m which is a per­fect place to cast a Method feeder loaded with ground­bait or damp mi­cro pel­lets. There are also some huge roach to over 3lb in here! Tem­ple Lake is Bury Hill’s spec­i­men carp wa­ter which is strictly mem­bers only, but is worth join­ing for what is on of­fer. Over 90 carp av­er­ag­ing around the 27lb mark are found in this lake, with a top weight of 43lb, but at only four acres it’s rel­a­tively sim­ple to find the fish. There’s a deep chan­nel dug around the is­lands that do hold the carp well, but the shal­low wa­ter be­tween pegs 1-15 are at­tract­ing the fish now that the weather is warmer. Ex­pect to find around 3ft of wa­ter here. Fill­ing it in with Cell and Ice­landic Red boilies has proved to be a win­ning tac­tic for mem­bers choos­ing to fish this swim.
