Home of one of the finest carp fisheries in the UK. My name is Warren Farrance and I would like to welcome you to the Darenth Big lake web site. Please take a look at what I believe is the best Carp fishery in the UK. I have been fishing Darenth Big Lake since the age of fourteen, and I am still as passionate about Darenth Big Lake today as I was when I started Carp fishing here with my Dad back in 1981. Darenth Big Lake offers you 40 swims set within 14.5 acres of this premier fishery. The Lake itself holds some 310 fish including, 23 fish over the 40lbs mark and a further 4 fish exceeding the 50lbs mark. The current lake record is a Mirror Carp at 57lbs 8oz, Leather Carp 56lbs 8oz, Common Carp 43lbs 8oz, Ghost Carp 37lbs 8oz. The lake also holds some Catfish, the record weighing in at 101lbs. We also have quality roach in excess of 3lbs, Bream in excess of 15lbs, tench in excess of 12lbs, and pike in excess of 25lbs. There is something for everyone, whether your an experienced Carp hunter or the individual who wants to while away the time in a secure and beautiful location.
