Lake Rouge is a breath-taking 4.5 acre stream and spring fed lake set in chestnut woodland, now dedicated purely to Catfish. Any Cats smaller than 40lbs have gone to local lakes to grow, and only once these are big enough will they be moved back into Rouge. Several upper 70’s, 80’s and 90lbers have already been added!
In the spring of 2017 four albino Catfish that each weighed between 18LBS and 22LBS were added, and these have been caught at substantially higher weights since.
No Carp fishing is permitted on this lake.
The lake, whilst being relatively snag-free, has a range of features to fish to: an island, a gravel bar, overhanging trees, slight silt bottom, shale bottom, and depths from three to fifteen feet. Fish are caught from every swim on this magnificent lake to a variety of methods. For any verified 100lb+ catfish anglers will receive a bottle of fizz or a free full English breakfast!
A rowing boat is included in the price of your holiday as are weigh slings and weighing equipment and unhooking mats for all swims. Gloves are also provided which we recommend you use, but if it’s a landing net you prefer please bring these as they are not provided.
You have the sole use of the lakeside cabin, containing a gas supply, cooker, fridge, cooking utensils (pots and pans etc), crockery and a sink. Also provided is a picnic bench and table. All banks are flat and much of the bankside is ideal for the less mobile angler – you can drive right to the waters edge. There is a 12 rod limit on Rouge with a maximum of 6 anglers.
Bait and food options are also available on site, or you can order bait through us here at Angling Paradise.
