We are now open and we are working to our best ability to comply with Social Distancing rules as set out by the Government.
You can join our active Facebook community group: Elton Carp & Catfish Lakes, for updates on any temporary changes to the rules to work in accordance with social distancing, good hygiene and ensuring that we can all enjoy our sport without risking each others health.
Some changes include:
– Customers must use their own toilet roll, disinfectant wipes and hand wipes
– All rubbish must now be taken home. Bins will no longer be provided for public use
– 2m rule to be adhered to at all times with those outside of your household
Some photos from Facebook of a few winter catches at Elton.
Above: Bob Weir was pleased with a cracking session in which he landed 10 carp. This is one of them.
Wayne managed to land a fish on New Year’s Eve 2017 – it was a screamer and Wayne’s last fish of 2017.
A visit from Bait Tech in January 2018: from their Facebook page –
“Darren Attwood opened his 2018 account with two carp in his latest session!”
“The venue of choice was Elton Carp lakes just outside of Gloucester towards the Forest of Dean . The horse shoe shaped lake with an island running down the middle was stocked around 2005 and the carp have come on nicely with a large head around the 20lb mark. As I was limited on time I was looking for quick bites so I decided to use Bait-Tech’s Tutti Fruity sweetcorn on the hair with a bag of mixed maggots soaked in Corn Liquid” .
“Fishing a couple of feet off the island it didnt take long before my bobbin come out of its winter hibernation and 2018 was kick started with a stunning mirror weighing in a whisker over 18lb! Shortly after the same tactic tripped up another stunning mirror weighing in at 17lb. With these cold misty mornings Super Sweetcorn range does the business and to really increase my chance of a bite Liquid Corn is a must have to boost those free offerings!”
