The owner has effected many improvements to bring back the beauty of this charming spot and increase the lake’s potential. The stream feeds the lake year-round and has been diverted from its original course by more than 400 m. Around 5000 m of tree-stumps and submerged trees have been cleared to gain more lake-space and improve fishing conditions.
Banks have been redone and 2 gravelled swims created which accommodate 2 bivvies each. This allows 180 degree fishing. You will find islets, a few remaining tree-stumps and submerged trees, reeds, plus muddy or pebbly areas at Ecaille Lake. The depths are down to 10 ft.
After multiple works on the lake, a re-stock of around 80 carp of 20-35 lbs was also realised . The lake has been left to itself for 2 years and the results are way beyond expectation. The carp have grown impressively, solely on natural food sources. Today, the average weight is over 25 lbs, with a record catch of 48 lbs. None of them is under 22 lbs.
