Our Carp water called Holbar Lake totals 4 acres of waters. Holbar is an exclusive day ticket water with easy access to 47pegs. Recently is stocked with the largest fish on the complex with Mirror and Common Carp (3 to 26 lbs), Hybrid Carp, Chub, F1 Carp, Bream, Barbel and silverfish.
Holbar is a vast open water with depths up to 12ft in parts, and 35 meters to islands but this varies throughout the lake. Popular pegs are on the feature of the lake which is over the bridge onto the island which tends to fish well throughout the year as does fishing in between the islands for large carp. If its big Barbel you are after catching then head to peg 17 which has been nicknamed “Barbel Alley” where they often shoal up.
Anglers tips are to fish banded 8mm pellet with loose feed over the top, a method feeder or fishing pole and paste.
Holbar used to be two separate lakes (Holbar 1 & 2) however it was redeveloped, combined, depths increased and now fishing has improved on there, even producing the runner up weight in the Fish ‘O’ Mania Qualifier 2015 by Andrew Bailey for Daiwa Dons weighing in with 101.14 lbs on Holbar peg 16.
