Welcome to our web site
Elton Carp lakes are two popular mature purpose-built carp fishing lakes, near Newnham on Severn. We welcome anglers from Gloucestershire and beyond to our lovely lakes.
LAKE CLOSED FOR PRIVATE MATCH WED 30th Nov TILL Friday 2nd Dec
NEWS FLASH- Talking to Keith & Chris of Carp 71 they tell me someone on a previous visit did catch a 25lb Carp, so that’s our latest record – unless you know better.
Please give me a call to verify weight of any fish over 25lb for a cash reward £ for lb for each increase of 2lb over previous fish – first catch only. Peter 07768182684

Very close by are Elton Giant Mazes and Redhill Extreme mountainboarding centre where the non-anglers in your group can have fun while you fish.
There is also nightstop camping available across the road.
The Top Lake – our specimen lake
This lake (the right hand lake in the photo) is our original lake with two islands. The banks have mature trees around.
There are 10 pegs and a good assortment of Carp, Bream and Tench in various sizes.
A car accessible peg on level ground is available for wheelchair users (as above) on the top lake. Other easy access pegs are available on both lakes.
The Horseshoe Lake
We opened the Horseshoe lake (left-hand lake in the photo) as a purpose built match lake in June 2007. It also has a constant supply of fresh water into the lake.
The match lake was stocked with some top quality carp from Sport and Leisure Fisheries.
Every year the fish have spawned twice with thousands of fry evident in the margins in the autumn.
We have already had dozens of upper doubles from this lake and a couple of fish up to 22lb.
When ground conditions permit it is possible to drive your tackle to your peg and then return your car to the car park.
