Pure fish­ing heaven here Five lakes or a stretch of the River Eden await vis­i­tors T

Angling Times (UK) - - SOUTH -

HREE-QUAR­TERS of a mile of the River Eden and five lakes make Gabriel’s rather dif­fer­ent.

The river holds chub, perch, pike, roach, gud­geon, a few big carp and in­creas­ing num­bers of barbel. On the lake front, Hare Lake of­fers carp, bream, roach, rudd, even chub, dace and gud­geon.

For match an­glers, Silver Lake holds tench, barbel, perch, roach, chub, carp and grass carp. Swal­low Lake, is a runs wa­ter and is packed with carp to 10lb.

Oak Lake holds carp to 33lb, roach, rudd, perch and bream. A min­i­mum 42ins land­ing net and bean bag-style un­hook­ing mat is a must. For some­thing even big­ger, the carp in Ad­mi­ral Lake run to over 40lb. Gabriel’s also has a car­a­van and camp­ing site with toi­lets and hot shower fa­cil­i­ties for those who would like a longer va­ca­tion.

There’s a choice of river or lake fish­ing here.
