Attila Lake

Size : 18 Acres
Swims : 9
Anglers : 7 max
Rating : Easy to Moderate

Overview

Attila is the most recent addition to the 'main Lakes' stable, having opened around 8 years ago to supplement the loss of Frog lake from the roster. Attila started life as the stock pond for Fox and Heron but at 18 acres in size is definitely a superb fishery in it's own right now! The lake has 9 pegs and Abbey allow up to 7 Anglers on at any one time, so while there isn't quite as much of a choice should you wish to change swims, it is always a possibility! The stock of Attila is once again a bit of an unknown quantity but estimates tend to suggest in the order of 600-700 carp ranging from mid 'doubles' up to the current lake record of just over 56lb, which was caught in august 2016. The lake is almost round in shape but with a small 3 or 4 acre bay running off down one bank where 3 of the swims are located. It is slightly shallower than the other Lakes at Abbey with depths ranging from 4'-11' throughout the main part of the lake and the odd slightly deeper area around 13'-15'. Once again it can be quite weedy during the peak Summer months but once past the margins it is quite clear on the whole with just a few major weedbeds present in the centre of the lake. It does have a small island at the 'far end' and can only be fished from 2 of the banks thereby ensuring that nobody interferes with anyone else's water! The average weight of fish is pushing on dramatically as the lake gains in popularity and currently sits at around 28lb-33lb. Reports indicate somewhere in the region of 75-100 different 40lb+ Carp and 10-15x 50's! If regular action from an ever-growing stock of fish is what you are after, Attila will definitely tick all the boxes but be quick because if they continue to grow at these rates, it'll be busier than Fox and Heron within the next few years!
