Species include Roach, Perch, Eels, Pike, Tench and Bream throughout the lakes; in the first lake, a prolific head of Common and Mirror Carp in the 10-25lb bracket can be found. Some 35lb+ specimens have also been reported with a 40.5lb Mirror Carp caught in June 2016. There is a new match fishing lake with 26 jettys on the site.
